1 of 1

Max Dynamite will lead champion trainer Willie Mullins' assault on Thursday's Guinness Galway Hurdle after heading the 20 declarations on Wednesday morning.

Mullins has a team of four for the €300,000 contest, with stable jockey Ruby Walsh aboard 7-1 shot Max Dynamite, who is vying for favouritism with the Joseph O'Brien-trained Tigris River.

Mullins's other runners are Clondaw Warrior, who heads the weights on 11st 10lb, Ivan Grozny and Airlie Beach.

There will be a four-strong British challenge for the race, in the shape of Court Minstrel, Fergall, Project Bluebook and Shrewd, who was the last horse to make the cut and carries 10st 1lb.

The three reserves are All The Answers – a stablemate of Tigris River –Morga and St Stephens Green.
