Star mare Annie Power features among 13 horses left in the woodiesdiy.com Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown on Saturday week.

The Willie Mullins-trained five-year-old took her unbeaten record to eight with victory over Zarkandar in the Coral Hurdle at Ascot last month.

She also holds an entry in the Ryanair Hurdle the following day, as does stablemate Zaidpour.

The rest of the Mullins team comprises 2010 winner Mourad, Thousand Stars, Diakali and French import Rubi Ball, who has also been confirmed for the Lexus Chase.

Also featuring is Charles Byrnes' Ladbrokes World Hurdle hero Solwhit, who has had a break since finishing second to Gemix at Auteuil in June.

Others are Rule The World, Cullentry Royal, Mala Beach and Whatuthink, while the British-trained pair of At Fishers Cross and Celestial Halo have been declared for the Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot on Saturday.
