To widen the gap between this meeting and the high-profile Christmas meetings, Punchestown's John Durkan Memorial Chase card has been moved back to the same weekend as Morgiana Hurdle day. Willie Mullins has won eight of the last ten renewals of the John Durkan and it's the current Cheltenham Gold Cup king who tops the betting.

Here's a look through the current John Durkan Memorial Chase betting and a rundown of the most likely runners.

2023 John Durkan Memorial Chase Entries

Galopin Des Champs kicked off last season with an easy victory in the John Durkan. Willie Mullins' star went on to win the Irish Gold Cup before powering to victory in the Gold Cup at Cheltenham and most bookmakers list Galopin Des Champs as a 2/5 favourite to win this weekend.

Mullins' stable star did, however, suffer a surprise defeat on his final start at Punchestown, where Fastorslow upset Galopin Des Champs and Bravemansgame to claim a shock victory. Martin Brassil's seven-year-old currently sits second in the betting, despite only finishing fifth in this contest 12 months ago.

The other four runners in the race will come from Galopin Des Champs stable. Blue Lord steps back up in trip, having finished third over two miles at Punchestown. Appreciate It steps into open company over fences for the first time. Asterion Forlonge and Stattler will also make their seasonal reappearances.
