The first race of the day at Leopardstown on Sunday is the 2m4f Maiden Hurdle and Harald Hardrad for Noel Meade looks the standout selection in this race.
The seven year old has been seen three times this season, winning a bumper on rules debut in November by 11 lengths in emphatic fashion and he has since been stepped over hurdles.
Having his first start over hurdles he finished a gallant second to the smart Willie Mullins trained Whatdeawant, who has since ran in Grade One company.
Looking to frank that he finished a strong fourth of 24 at Naas over two miles behind the talented Meet and Greet.
He holds the strongest form in the race and has been placed in a weak race that gives him an opportunity to get off the mark over timber, back over his preferred trip.
