Five-star line-up in DrinmoreHeadlines
Arvika Ligeonniere

Arvika Ligeonniere is one of just five runners set to go to post for Sunday's Bar One Racing Drinmore Novices Chase at Fairyhouse.

He made a winning debut over fences for Willie Mullins at Punchestown back in May but has since been off the track, and is set to clash with four-time chase winner Pride Of The Artic as well as Henry De Bromhead's Buckers Bridge and the Tony Martin-trained Dedigout.

Noel Meade's Texas Jack also runs after winning at Naas earlier this month.

Martin was delighted with Dedigout's chasing debut win at Punchestown and is expecting a decent showing in the Grade One contest.

"We were very happy with him in Punchestown the last day. This is a step up but I think he's entitled to run a good race," said the County Meath handler.

"The ground should be fine for him, he's in good form and we'll see how he gets on."

Comparing him to last year's winner Bog Warrior which he also trained for the same owners the Gigginstown House Stud, Martin said: "It's quite difficult to compare the two of them. They are different types of horses really, but hopefully they're two good ones."

Mullins reports Arvika Ligeonniere to be ready for his second run over fences after making a good first impression.

"He did well at Punchestown. He jumps well and we're hoping for a good run," said the County Carlow trainer.
