Henry de Bromhead's classy performer Days Hotel heads 16 possibles for the Bar One Racing Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase at Fairyhouse on Sunday following the five-day confirmation stage.

Days Hotel, whose last success came in a Grade Two contest at Naas in February, was second to the brilliant Douvan in the Hilly Way Chase at Cork on his latest start.

Arthur Moore relies on Dandridge in the race named after his late father which he last won in 2013 with Lastoftheleaders.

Jarry D'Honneur is Willie Mullins' sole representative, while Gordon Elliott is double-handed with Ball D'Arc and Turn Over Sivola.

The one British-trained entry is Neil Mulholland's Baltimore Rock, who was fourth at Ludlow last month on his first start since finishing fourth to Douvan in the Ryanair Novice Chase at Punchestown in April.

There is an interesting Irish Stallions EBF Beginners' Chase over the same distance of two miles and a furlong on the card.

Willie Mullins has Bachasson and Townshend in contention, with Jessica Harrington's Don't Touch It also among 16 entries.
