There are some decent entries for Fairyhouse next Wednesday, but none more intriguing than Galileo's Choice in the novice hurdle.

Dermot Weld is obviously considering a low-key Cheltenham prep for the Royal Bond runner-up, though it may not be the softest touch going, with Willie Mullins' Terminal one of a few with proven ability among his potential rivals.

One way or another, we should get a good idea of how Galileo's Choice, 14/1 for the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham, is shaping up if Weld opts to give him a sharpener.
