Henry de Bromhead hopes to be double-handed in the Ladbrokes Troytown Chase at Navan on Sunday.

Chris's Dream is a leading fancy for the three-mile prize while the Knockeen handler could also saddle Solomn Grundy in the €100,000 contest.

Chris's Dream is generally a 10/1 shot having been a course and distance winner when taking the Grade 2 Ten Up Novice Chase at the Meath track last season.

De Bromhead said:- “I’d say both Chris’s Dream and Solomn Grundy will run. We will work them during the week but both are aiming towards it.

“Both of them love cut in the ground and are real staying types. Solomn ran very well around there on his first run last year.”

In other news ahead of the historic handicap chase Tom Mullins relies on Oscar Knight after Spider Web was ruled out at the latest forfeit stage.

Oscar Knight was third in the Munster National at Limerick last month but could only finish mid-division when turning out again in the Cork National at the start of this month.

The Doninga trainer said:- “Oscar Knight is in good form and will go for the Troytown but Spider Web got an overreach and will not be running. He needs a bit more time.”
