Arvika Ligeonniere: Looking to enhance his Arkle claims
Arvika Ligeonniere aims to enhance his Arkle claims as he comes back in trip for the Racing Post Novice Chase at Leopardstown on Boxing Day.
Despite being sidelined for over two years with injury, the seven-year-old has made an explosive start to his career over fences, winning at Punchestown in May before making all in the Drinmore Novice Chase at Fairyhouse earlier this month.
A bold display of front-running and jumping led to him beating the talented Dedigout pointless and trainer Willie Mullins does not believe coming back from two and a half miles to two miles and a furlong will be a problem.
He said: "He's been fine since Fairyhouse and I think coming back to an extended two miles round Leopardstown should be fine for him.
"The ground won't be a problem and we'll see what happens. He's a good, strong horse who likes to gallop and jump, but we'll let Paul (Townend) decide how he wants to ride him."
Seemingly the biggest threat to Arvika Ligeonniere's unbeaten record over fences is the Jessica Harrington-trained Oscars Well.
A dual Grade One-winning hurdler and sixth in last season's Champion Hurdle, he bolted up on his fencing bow at Punchestown in October but then suffered a horrendous fall at the same track the following month.
"Everything is grand with him. He had that horrible fall in Punchestown but I thought he was brilliant in Navan, I couldn't complain about that performance at all," said the trainer.
