Voler gunning for Grace braceHeadlines
Voler La Vedette

Voler La Vedette will face four opponents as she bids to repeat last year's victory in the Bar One Racing Hatton's Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse on Sunday.

Colm Murphy's star mare has to bounce back after a shock defeat by Whatuthink on her seasonal reappearance at Navan three weeks ago.

Willie Mullins runs So Young and Zaidpour, while Dessie Hughes relies upon Si C'Etait Vrai. The Noel Meade-trained Monksland, a Grade Two winner at Down Royal on his reappearance four weeks ago, completes the quintet.

Murphy reports Voler La Vedette to be in good form as she bids to retain her crown.

"Touch wood she is good and well in herself. Fingers crossed, we are hoping for a nice run," said the County Wexford trainer.

"We're happy going there on Sunday. Ideally, we'd have preferred she won the last day, but apart from the result, all is well. Hopefully she'll get the run of the race."

Mullins is happy to run So Young and Zaidpour at this level but feels that Voler La Vedette will take all the beating.

"Both these horses will like the ground and the trip and both are up to running in Grade One races, but the mare will be hard to beat," he said.
