Gordon Elliott has the Ballymore at the Cheltenham Festival in mind for FAROUK D'ALENE, who looks an exciting prospect to go hurdling with. This wide-margin point-to-point winner spreadeagled the field in a bumper at this track last Christmas, before showing his battling qualities to win a Naas bumper by a head in February. The forecast rain is very much in his favour. His stablemate Grangeclare Native is a chaser in the making but could get involved. He is another with a victory 'between the flags' and in a bumper to his name. Northern trainer Stuart Crawford is sure to have Legacy Thor primed for this task. He has race-fitness on his side after a runner-up finish from Punchestown at the end of last month. Pat's Pick appears to be the best of Noel Meade's pair.

Third in Champion Bumper at Cheltenham in March. Gave odds-on backers a fright on Fairyhouse hurdle debut 3 weeks ago but that bumper ability provides her with the potential for a good deal better.

She has won a hurdle race, a NH flat race and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m on yielding and heavy ground. Won on her latest outing in a maiden hurdle race when 2-7fav at Fairyhouse over 2m (yielding) earlier this month, beating dead-heaters Decimation and Gua Du Large by a neck.

QUEENS BROOK should show considerably more after scrambling home by a neck in Fairyhouse this month. Gordon Elliott was quoted as saying she was three-quarters fit for that assignment and that the lack of gallop there didn't suit her. Considering the mare's novices' hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival is the plan, she ought to be right on the premises. She showed her class by being placed in the Grade One champion bumper at Cheltenham last season. Brave Way has reportedly strengthened up and was mightily impressive in justifying short odds in a recent mares' maiden hurdle at Kilbeggan. She will likely keep Queens Brook more than honest. Lorna Fowler has got a fine mare on her hands in Politesse. She started out on her hurdling career by turning over an odds-on favourite in Thurles and isn't out of this. Anna Bunina is experienced and carries a mark of 131 and has a shot at prize money.

ABACADABRAS starts out on the Champion Hurdle route and should take all the beating with a mark of 158. It's very hard to pick holes in his last campaign which saw him motor through the ranks. From a victory in a maiden hurdle at Gowran Park, he progressed to score in a Grade 3 at Navan before finishing an honourable second to Envoi Allen in the Royal Bond. He secured his own Grade One at Leopardstown over Christmas and was agonisingly pipped by a head in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham. In addition, he has won off a break before. Aspire Tower has almost a stone to find on official ratings but is reportedly working very well. He has strong form in the book including when second in the Grade One Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham and is a worthy adversary. Jason The Militant could be the one to expose any fitness issues in 'the big two'. He's a Grade 2 winner over hurdles who comfortably landed a Flat maiden at the start of the month. Noel Meade enjoys this festival and his Sixshooter shouldn't be underestimated.
