Power-packed Annie defies LogicHeadlines
Willie Mullins

Willie Mullins predicted a big future for Annie Power after the mare swept to her sixth success in the paddypower.com Novice Hurdle at Naas.

The five-year-old is now unbeaten in three races over jumps to add to her three bumper victories after she took the scalp of the highly promising Defy Logic.

Tony McCoy tried to dictate matters from the front on the latter, but he was strongly pressed at the business end and his mount had no answer to Annie Power.

Ruby Walsh looked to be going best of all on the 5-2 shot, who shrugged aside Defy Logic at the final flight and quickened away to take Grade Two honours by three and a quarter lengths.

"I didn't know how good she was and we came here to find out," said the record-breaking Mullins, who enjoyed a treble on the day.

"She has the size and scope to be anything. She looks like she'll be a chaser in time and I hope she'll improve and keep getting stronger. With a summer's grass she can do nothing but improve."

Stan James slashed Annie Power to 14-1 from 66-1 for the William Hill Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham, but Mullins said: "We'll probably look at the Grade One mares race at Fairyhouse for her."
