Verdict

The Noel Meade-trained FAUGUERNON can add to his win in a Leopardstown 2m novice handicap hurdle on St Stephens Day when leading 24 rivals home. The six-year-old can win for a yard who boast a 50% win and place strike rate since 2017 at this meeting including landing a double here 12 months ago with Eurobot and Behind The Curtain. The five-year-old Texard in the colours of owners Simon Munir and Isaac Souede can emerge as the biggest danger for trainer Gordon Elliott while Carrigmoorna Pine and Advanced Virgo should not be taken lightly.
