Seven possible runners remain in Sunday's Dobbins & Madigans @ Punchestown Morgiana Hurdle, and it looks likely to be a high-class renewal.
The star name is Willie Mullins' 2011 Champion Hurdle winner Hurricane Fly, who lost his title at Cheltenham in March.
Hurricane Fly did go some way to redeeming his reputation at Punchestown, beating his stablemate Zaidpour, who could once again be in opposition. Mullins could also run Blackstairmountain.
Go Native could prove to be Hurricane Fly's toughest foe, having returned from almost two years off seemingly as good as ever.
Noel Meade has used all his skill to nurse the nine-year-old back to the track and he showed a blistering turn of foot to win a Flat race last month.
Meade has, however, taken out Monksland.
Dermot Weld's mare Unaccompanied could return to hurdles having run on the Flat recently, while Eddie Harty's Captain Cee Bee, who showed his engine remains intact when beating Rebel Fitz at Tipperary, is also in the mix.
Edward O'Grady's Staying Article is another interesting runner, having finished third in a valuable handicap on just his third start over timber last season.
