Presenting Percy and Death Duty are among 11 classy entries in the Liam & Valerie Brennan Memorial Florida Pearl Novice Chase at Punchestown on Sunday.

Impressive winner of the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham, Pat Kelly's six-year-old Presenting Percy looked a natural winning first time out over fences.

Death Duty has always been held in the highest regard by Gordon Elliott, winning eight of his 12 races under Rules.

He has already won twice over fences, including a Grade Three in good style.

Elliott has also entered Jury Duty, Shattered Love, Mossback and Tombstone.

Henry de Bromhead's impressive Monalee, second in the Albert Bartlett in March, could make his chasing debut in the race.

Willie Mullins could run Arbre De Vie while Jessica Harrington has entered Woodland Opera, with Call The Taxie and Cheiliuradh engaged as well.

Seuil skips Greatwood

Ante-post favourite Defi Du Seuil will not run in the Unibet Greatwood Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham on Sunday.
