NEW! A 'WS' icon means the horse has had wind surgery to improve its breathing since its last run.

9/2
Unlucky not to win having travelled well prior to falling at Fairyhouse last December but made no mistake when victorious over C&D on yielding-to-soft ground a month ago. Stepping up markedly in grade today but one to note for a leading stable.

4/11
Top class hurdler and winner of 12 of his 13 starts under rules. Latest victory came at Leopardstown (2m, soft) in January last year. Likely to prove hard to beat on his return from a lengthy absence though was beaten in this race two years ago.

6/1
Successful 15 times from 27 starts and put a couple of disappointing efforts behind him when winning on seasonal debut at Tipperary (2m, soft-to-heavy) last month. Likely to find at least one too good today.

20/1
Victorious off a mark of 140 at Killarney (2m1f, good) in July. Placed twice over hurdles since and a winner on the Flat last time out. Interesting to see how he fares stepping up in class today.

Forecast

Faugheen (4/11), Campeador (9/2), Jezki (6/1), Vroum Vroum Mag (6/1), Swamp Fox (20/1)

Verdict

FAUGHEEN can make a winning return from a lengthy absence by registering an eighth success at the highest level in this 2m contest. Willie Mullins has taken the last six renewals of this contest and the 2015 Champion Hurdle winner can see off the youngster Campeador, who was a winner here last time out while the selections stablemate Vroum Vroum Mag, herself a classy hurdler can take third.
