Trainer - Willie Mullins
The 2015 Champion Hurdle winner Faugheen, looks to have turned over a new leaf, having won the Champion Stayers Hurdle at Punchestown in April.
He won it in stunning fashion as well, dismissing stable companion Penhill - who won the English equivalent at Cheltenham a month earlier, by nearly fifteen lengths.
Mullins undecided by going chasing or remaining over hurdles at a longer distance, and this will be a key indicator.
