Identity Thief will be given an entry in the Ryanair Hurdle at Leopardstown's Christmas Festival as trainer Henry de Bromhead contemplates the next run for his Fighting Fifth winner.

The County Waterford handler will look at that race, although at this stage he is no rush to commit the five-year-old following his game neck victory over Top Notch in the Grade One at Newcastle, for which he was supplemented.

"He seems great. I'm not sure where he'll go next. He'll have an entry in the Ryanair Hurdle at Christmas, but we'll see how he is between now and then," said De Bromhead.

"We were delighted with his run last week."
