Minella Indo went off as the favourite for the Savills' Chase over Christmas. To the surprise of everyone in attendance, Henry De Bromhead's charge fell as the field began their second circuit.
De Bromhead said his stable star is none-the-worse for that tumble, and has been immediately installed as Paddy Power's ante-post favourite.
Delta Work held off Kemboy and Presenting Percy to win last year's Irish Gold Cup. Like the favourite, Gordon Elliott's charge came a cropper in the Savills Chase, and will be looking to bounce back at the Dublin Racing Festival.
Kemboy looked to have seen off Melon in the Savills Chase, only for A Plus Tard to come through late on and claim victory. The odds suggest A Plus Tard will be saved for the Cheltenham Gold Cup, but both Kemboy and Melon look set to run in February.
Presenting Percy claimed an overdue win at Thurles earlier in the season, but will have to bounce back after a poor showing in the Savills Chase. Samcro also delivered an underwhelming showing that day, and Gordon Elliott has handed his star a chance to redeem himself.
Elliott has also handed Irish Gold Cup entries to The Storyteller and Battleoverdoyen. Willie Mullins has rewarded Castlebawn West, who bolted up under top-weight in a big handicap over Christmas, with an entry in this Grade One.
Two JP McManus runners round off the entries. Fakir D'Oudairies, who was pulled up in the Savills Chase, and Ted Walsh's Any Second Now.
