Back In Focus is one of the star names among 16 possible runners in the Topaz Fort Leney Novice Chase at Leopardstown on Friday week.
The seven-year-old is unbeaten in two starts over fences for champion trainer Willie Mullins and would be stepping back up to three miles for this Grade One contest on December 28.
Mullins also has impressive Gowran winner Aupcharlie engaged, while Noel Meade has a strong hand with Sword Of Destiny joined by stablemate Texas Jack.
Tony Martin has Grade One winners Dedigout and Benefficient in the mix, while The Westener Boy has been supplemented by owner JP McManus following his facile win for Colm Murphy at Navan earlier this month.
The other major supporting race to the Lexus Chase on Friday's card is the woodiesdiy.com Christmas Hurdle over three miles.
Murphy's mare Voler La Vedette could defend her title in the Grade Two event, but needs to bounce back having been beaten on her previous two starts this term.
Mullins has six possible runners in Bishopsfurze, Mikael D'Haguenet, Shakervilz, So Young, Thousand Stars and Zaidpour.
Other possibles include Captain Cee Bee and Weapon's Amnesty, who could revert to smaller obstacles for his first appearance since winning the 2010 RSA Chase at Cheltenham.
