LEOPARDSTOWN brings the curtain down on its jump season with Identity Thief bidding to get his season back on track after unseating at the first in the Arkle Novice Chase over the course and distance at the end of January.
Willie Mullins dusts off two French imports Aurko and Bonbon Au Miel, who have been off more than two years, alongside the useful Diakali in the first race as he continues his pursuit of Gordon Elliott in the Irish trainers' title race.
Huntingdon racegoers should be in for a treat with the bold front-running mare Desert Queen favourite to win the rescheduled Listed mares's chase for Harry Fry and Noel Fehily.
