Solwhit and Hurricane Fly could be set for round four of their intriguing head-to-head battle in the Leopardstown Golf Centre Festival Hurdle next Wednesday.

Willie Mullins' Hurricane Fly went 2-1 up with victory in the Hatton's Grace Hurdle last week whilst third home, Colm Murphy's Voler La Vedette, could tackle the pair again

Mullins has also entered Thousand Stars, the County Hurdle winner who was third in the Rabobank Champion Hurdle at Punchestown.

One surprise entry is Nicky Henderson's Binocular, the current champion hurdler, but he is expected to run at Kempton over the festive period in the Christmas Hurdle.

Sublimity, who hasn't won since taking this race in 2008 when he became trainer Robbie Hennessy's first winner, is another possible.

Donnas Palm, Luska Lad and Won In The Dark complete the small but select field of nine possibles.
