Vedette set for Grace defenceHeadlines
Voler La Vedette

Colm Murphy is not too downbeat after star mare Voler La Vedette was turned over at long odds-on at Navan on Sunday.

Last season's World Hurdle runner-up was a 1-7 favourite to secure back-to-back wins in the Lismullen Hurdle, but having been ridden with extreme confidence by Andrew Lynch, she failed to reel in race-fit front-runner Whatuthink.

Murphy feels his eight-year-old will improve for the run and she will now defend her title in the Grade One Hatton's Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse next month.

"She seems fine this morning and considering the ground she made up, I think she probably ran a very good race," said Murphy.

"She came from a long way back and you can't give them a furlong start in that ground.

"She'll come on for the run and we'll stick to the plan with her and go for the Hatton's Grace at Fairyhouse."
