The seven-year-old's only defeat from 13 career starts came when he fell at Thurles on his chasing debut in November and he has since secured a hat-trick of victories, culminating in a brilliant front-running display at the Cheltenham Festival.

Un De Sceaux could well cross paths with Arkle runner-up God's Own, the third home, Josses Hill, and the fourth-placed Vibrato Valtat.

Henry de Bromhead's Sizing Granite, a winner of his last two starts at Naas and Leopardstown, is another intriguing Irish contender among 13 confirmations
