Rubi Light will attempt to win the Red Mills Chase for the third successive year at Gowran Park on Saturday.
Trainer Robbie Hennessy is looking forward to running the eight-year-old in the Grade Two contest over two and a half miles ahead of going for the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham next month.
Rubi Light has finished third and fifth in the last two runnings of the Grade One Ryanair over two miles and five furlongs.
"I've taken him out of the Queen Mother at Cheltenham and he'll go for the Ryanair again," said the County Meath handler.
"First it's the Red Mills Chase at Gowran. He's won it the last two years. Hopefully the racing will go ahead on Saturday as he in great form. We gave him a bit of a break and he's back now.
"He worked the other day on the Curragh - Andrew Lynch rode him - and we're very happy with him."
Willie Mullins is responsible for three of the 12 possibles - his two main Grand National hopes Prince De Beauchene and On His Own, as well as Apt Approach.
Ted Walsh has his two Aintree prospects, Seabass and Colbert Station, in the list.
Gordon Elliott is also double-handed with Roi Du Mee and Chicago Grey, while the other entries are Foildubh, Hidden Cyclone, Rathlin and Realt Dubh.
