Michael Winters will closely monitor weather conditions before deciding whether to run Rebel Fitz and Missunited in the Red Mills Trial Hurdle at Gowran Park on Saturday.
The County Cork trainer reports both horses in fine shape after their mid-season break but he will not risk them on testing conditions.
"The weather forecast doesn't look too good. We had desperate rain on Sunday night so the ground might come very heavy," said Winters.
"Both horses are in great order, they are fit and healthy, but I wouldn't want to pulverise them. We'd love to get a run into them and there are other races to think about.
"There's a race at Mallow (Cork) and the owners might want to go to Cheltenham.
"If the going's bad we won't run them but if they put Gowran off for a week we might have another look.
"Both horses are in great order and they are fit and healthy."
Four of the 12 entries for this Grade Two contest over two miles are from the Willie Mullins stable - Midnight Game, So Young, Thousand Stars and Zaidpour.
The list is completed by Arnaud, Noble Prince, De Valira, Fosters Cross, Hisaabaat and Rory O'Moore.
