Willie Mullins has three possibles for the Royal Bond

The unbeaten Airlie Beach leads the way as a total of eight horses stood their ground for Sunday's Bar One Racing Royal Bond Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse.

Trained by Willie Mullins, Airlie Beach has won each of her six starts, with her most recent victory coming in Grade Three company at Down Royal at the beginning of November.

The six-year-old is one of three possibles for Mullins in the Grade One along with recent Naas victor Saturnas and Grade Three winner Penhill.

Gordon Elliott has Grade Three winner Labaik in the mix, while stablemate Bilko is another possible having won a Cork maiden hurdle at the start of November.

Henry de Bromhead could field Peace News, who was a winner on his only hurdles start to date at Cork, with Noel Meade's Le Martalin and the Jessica Harrington-trained Forge Meadow rounding out the list of contenders.

Landofhopeandglory, ante-post favourite for the Triumph Hurdle, could take the next step up the ladder in the Bar One Racing Juvenile Hurdle.

Smart on the Flat for Aidan O'Brien, the three-year-old has triumphed for Joseph O'Brien at both Fairyhouse and Punchestown this term, with this Grade Three heat representing another significant leap in class.

Stablemates Big Ben, who is a half-brother to multiple Group One winner Attraction, and Zig Zag are also under consideration for a race that has drawn 10 entries.
