Mullins pair lead Drinmore hopefulsHeadlines
Mikael D'Haguenet

Willie Mullins-trained duo Arvika Ligeonniere and Mikael D'Haguenet feature among eight confirmations for the Bar One Racing Drinmore Novice Chase at Fairyhouse on Sunday.

High-class hurdler Arvika Ligeonniere was sidelined for over two years with injury before making a brilliant debut over fences at Punchestown in May.

Little has gone right for Mikael D'Haguenet since falling at the last when looking the likely winner of the Grade One contest in 2010. He was, however, going to win easily at Punchestown a couple of weeks ago until being brought to a standstill by a horrendous blunder at the final obstacle.

Heading the challenge to the Mullins team is Henry de Bromhead's Buckers Bridge, who won two bumpers and vindicated his trainer's decision to go straight over fences with victory at Punchestown in October.

Dedigout and Sword Of Destiny add further strength in depth to a quality field.

My Murphy, Pride Of The Artic and Texas Jack complete the entries.
