ANOTHER tussle between Hurricane Fly and Jezki could be on the cards at Fairyhouse at the end of the month with the pair among the entries for the Grade 1 Bar One Racing Hatton’s Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse on November 30.
The leading hurdlers are expected to clash on Sunday at Punchestown in the 2m Stan James-backed Morgiana Hurdle and they could tackle Faugheen, Annie Power and Zaidpour over half a mile further at Fairyhouse.
Monksland, not seen since winning the Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown in 2012 has been given an entry by Noel Meade, while Cheltenham Festival winners More Of That and Tiger Roll could also take their chance.
The Tullow Tank looks the star attraction among the entries for the Grade 1 Bar One Racing Drinmore Novice Chase. Recent chasing debut winners Apache Stronghold, Shanahan’s Turn and Gilgamboa are also entered.
The third of the Grade 1 races on the card is the Bar One Racing Royal Bond Novice Hurdle for which a host of promising young horses have been entered.
Willie Mullins has won three of the last six runnings of the race and he has no shortage of potential representatives including Punchestown Champion Bumper winner Shaneshill and French import Allez Colombieres.
Gordon Elliott has the highly-promising dual bumper winner No More Heroes entered for Gigginstown House Stud and also the JP McManus-owned Free Expression, who was a good winner at Naas on Saturday.
