Top novices in Killiney frame

Vautour, Clarcam and Valseur Lido all appear among a classy entry of 10 for the Leopardstown Killiney Novice Chase on Sunday.

Last year's Supreme Novices' Hurdle winner Vautour and Gordon Elliott's Clarcam have met twice already this season with Willie Mullins' Vautour coming out on top easily the first time they met before the tables were turned in no uncertain terms over Christmas.

Mullins believes Vautour was some way short of his best that day, though, and he has also mentioned the Irish Arkle as a possible target for Rich Ricci's star.

If Vautour does not run this weekend, Mullins has a more than able deputy in Valseur Lido, who was an impressive winner of the Drinmore Novice Chase last November.

The champion trainer has also entered Adriana Des Mottes, Gitane Du Berlais and Val De Ferbet.

Mouse Morris has entered the smart Rule The World as well as Real Steel with Tony Martin giving Ted Veale the option.

However, Ted Veale could run in the valuable BoyleSports Hurdle .
