McManus team among Triumph 55

Defi Du Seuil and Charli Parcs are just two of seven JP McManus-owned contenders among the 55 entries for this year's JCB Triumph Hurdle.

Defi Du Seuil and Coeur du Lion: Both in the Triumph Hurdle picture.

The pair are joined by recent purchase Project Bluebook from John Quinn's yard and Joseph O'Brien's classy Flat recruits Landofhopeandglory and Housesofparliament.

Illustrating the depth among his juvenile team and the number of options open to them, all five of the above-named horses are also entered in the Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle.

Alan King has more horses engaged than any other trainer and his six are Coeur De Lion, Cosmeapolitan, Dino Velvet, Fidux, Lexington Law and Master Blueyes.

Willie Mullins, who has not won the Triumph since Scolardy provided him with his one and only success in 2002, has four possible runners including Grade Two scorer Bapaume and impressive Leopardstown scorer Meri Devie.

There are a total of 21 possible runners from Ireland, while Dica De Thaix is the only French-trained contender.
