Arctic Fire in perfect Hatton's Grace 10

Champion Hurdle runner-up Arctic Fire is the headline name remaining in the Bar One Racing Hatton's Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse on Sunday at the five-day stage.

The six-year-old, who won the Lismullen Hurdle at Navan on his return to action earlier this month, is one of three possible contenders in the Grade One prize for trainer Willie Mullins alongside the unbeaten Clondaw Court and filly Petite Parisienne.

Noel Meade has left in Monksland, who also has the option of the Drinmore over fences on the same card, and Snow Falcon as he seeks to win the two-and-a-half-mile contest for the first time since 2007.

Recent Grade Two winner Identity Thief is the sole representative of Henry De Bromhead, but he has been supplemented for the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle and is thought more likely to take up that option instead.

The list is completed by Mouse Morris' Alpha Des Obeaux, Taglietelle for Gordon Elliott, Tony Martin's Thomas Edison and Gwencily Berbas for Alan Fleming.
