Michael O'Sullivan believes Fascile Mode 'has a great chance' in the Bar One Racing Royal Bond Hurdle at Fairyhouse on Sunday.

Successful on Marine Nationale in this Grade 1 contest 12-months ago, O'Sullivan has again landed a plum ride.

An easy winner on his hurdling debut at Punchestown in October, the Tom Mullins-trained five-year-old will take on eight rivals at Fairyhouse.

"Tom is no stranger to big races and I'm very much looking forward to him," O'Sullivan commented.

"He done everything right in his maiden hurdle at Punchestown. Tom is very happy with him and his work has been good. It's a race that's wide open really and I wouldn't be swapping him anyway.

"Last year was amazing, it was my first ride in a Grade 1 and to win it on Marine (Nationale) was special. Obviously I'd love to repeat that success. I think he has a great chance."
