Road To Riches heads Gold Cup field

Ten charges confirmed for battle

Road To Riches will head the field in the Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown on Saturday, with 10 competitors having been confirmed for the race.

The Noel Meade-trained star is set to be the odds-on favourite, after the Willie Mullins pair of Don Poli and Vautour were withdrawn, despite having not competed since securing victory in November's Clonmel Oil Chase.

Meade's Wounded Warrior is also set to be run, while Mullins will enter On His Own, Sir Des Champs and Valseur Lido.

First Lieutenant, trained by Mouse Morris, will also be lightly fancied, having come a close second to Don Poli in the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown over Christmas.

Third in the Lexus was the Ted Walsh-trained Foxrock, aiming to get the better of defending champion Carlingford Lough after narrowly losing out to John Kiely's charge last year. Carlingford, though, is not fancied after finishing last in the Lexus.

Stuart Crawford's Fine Rightly and Enda Bolger's Gilgamboa complete the current line-up, with the former being the rank outsider.
