The first selection from us at Naas on Sunday comes in the feature Grade Three Limestone Lad Hurdle over two miles and Beacon Edge for the inform Noel Meade can lay down a big challenge.
The seven year old has been an exceptional horse over hurdles finishing in the frame in all six of his races to date, last time out in Grade One company which sets the standard today.
This season he has been seen three times, winning at Downpatrick by nine lengths in an event over 2m2f and then backing that up in a Grade Three at Galway next time out, seeing off Minella Melody and rival on Sunday Grand Roi with ease.
Last time out he was stepped up to the Grade One Hatton's Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse over 2m4f when a narrow third behind the smart Honeysuckle and Ronald Pump.
That sets the form standard in the race and although dropping back to, two miles he looks the one to beat.
