Top-weight On His Own is likely to swerve the bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown on Saturday in favour of a run at the Punchestown Festival.

Trainer Willie Mullins is leaning towards staying at home with last season's Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up, with a tilt at the Bibby Financial Services Ireland Punchestown Gold Cup a more likely alternative.

He told At The Races: " I would prefer to go to Punchestown with On His Own."
