John Kiely's Galway Plate winner Carlingford Lough is one of eight possibles for Sunday's Bar One Racing Drinmore Novice Chase at Fairyhouse.

The seven-year-old nearly defied a 14lb higher mark in the Kerry National when second to White Star Line and is now rated 150.

Dessie Hughes' Art Of Logistics has won both of his outings this term while Noel Meade's Road To Riches claimed victory on his chasing debut at Naas.

Henry De Bromhead has always spoken of Sizing Rio in glowing terms and his two wins over fences have also come with the minimum of fuss.

Don Cossack lost little in defeat behind Morning Assembly and his fellow Gordon Elliott-trained runner Shrapnel sets a decent standard, too.

Clar Na Mionn and Gold Bullet may also run.
