Drinmore option for Dedigout

Tony Martin could bid for back-to-back victories in the Bar One Drinmore Novices' Chase with Dedigout at Fairyhouse on December 2.

The County Meath trainer sent out Bog Warrior to land the Grade One contest last year and reports Dedigout to have taken his chasing debut success at Punchestown in his stride.

"He has come out of the race really well," said Martin.

"I need to sit down and have a chat with Michael and Eddie (O'Leary, of owners Gigginstown House Stud) to see what the plan is for him.

"While he obviously handles testing ground really well, I would be happy to run him on anything."

Gordon Elliott has put in an entry for Grade Two hurdle winner Mount Benbulben, who recently finished third on his chasing debut behind Jenari.

"We are really pleased with him and everything he is doing. Regarding this race we will wait and see how he gets on at Punchestown next week and make a plan from there," said Elliott.

Others among the 32 possibles are Jenari, Oscars Well, Boston Bob, Buckers Bridge and Sword Of Destiny.
