Quevega is one of 10 declarations for the Ladbrokes World Series Hurdle at Punchestown on Thursday.

Willie Mullins' incredible mare etched her name into the history books by winning the OLBG Mares' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival for the sixth consecutive season when she battled past stablemate Glens Melody.

She will be attempting a fifth straight win against the boys at this meeting.

Glens Melody is once again in opposition, as is another stablemate, Mourad.

The challenge from Britain is strong, with At Fishers Cross, the mount of Tony McCoy, and the Philip Hobbs-trained Pertemps Hurdle winner Fingal Bay supplemented by Knockara Beau and Reve De Sivola.

Bog Warrior reverts to hurdling for Tony Martin, while Jessica Harrington's Jetson and the Henry de Bromhead-trained Sadler's Risk complete the field.
