Infection linked to Rubi reverseHeadlines
Rubi Light

Rubi Light was suffering from a lung infection when he trailed home a well-beaten third behind Flemenstar and Sir Des Champs in the John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase.

Trainer Robbie Hennessy is pleased an explanation has been found for that display and is also thrilled his charge does not require a breathing operation, and he will now drop in trip for the Paddy Power Dial-A-Bet Chase at Leopardstown on December 27, rather than run in the Lexus Chase a day later.

"We put an on-board scope on him on Friday and galloped him hard," said County Meath-based Hennessy.

"It showed up that he had mucus on his lungs and, in a way, it was a bit of a relief. Barry Geraghty said when he got to the third-last he stopped very quickly and his breathing didn't sound right.

"We were fearing that he might need a breathing op so I'm delighted that we've found the infection as it's easily treated.

"He's on something now until Christmas Day and hopefully he'll be fine to run in the Dial-A-Bet on the 27th - I think that looks the best option. I know it's two miles, but the Lexus looks very hot this year."
