Dawn out to defend crown

Last year's winner Drombeg Dawn features among the entries for Irish Lincolnshire at the Curragh on Sunday.

Defining Year also won on this card 12 months ago and is a potential opponent, as is Chill, who finished sixth in the Fred Winter at last week's Cheltenham Festival.

John Oxx has put in his lightly-raced four-year-old Sharestan, with Jim Bolger represented on the list by Glor Na Mara and Whipless. Dermot Weld can call upon Font Of Wisdom and Northern Rocked, while Aidan O'Brien's sole entry is Windsor Palace.

The Richard Fahey-trained Take It To The Max ended his 2011 campaign with a decisive success at Leopardstown and features among the British possibles.
