Two-time Grand National each-way runner Anibale Fly returns to action at Punchestown on Saturday afternoon for Tony Martin.
These efforts were subsequent to a third and second in the Cheltenham Gold Cup a month previously, resulting in a lofty 164 rating, and top-weight of 11st 10lbs, on the second occasion but he still pulled nine lengths clear of 2017 victor One For Arthur two years ago when making the top quintet.
It was five years ago today that the son of Assessor won at this very fixture, taking the Coral Handicap Hurdle under Barry Geraghty.
He has only run at Punchestown twice since, chasing home Disko in the Grade 1 Champion Novice Chase twelve months later before being the last home in the 2019 John Durkan.
He pulled up in the 2021 National in Liverpool last time out and concedes weight all around on his return to County Kildare in the Colm Quinn BMW Group Handicap Chase at 2:50pm on the final day of the fixture.
Mark Walsh is back in the saddle and the 7-time winner will wear cheekpieces for the first time.
