Irish Champion National Hunt trainer Willie Mullins has stated that Douvan has made a full recovery from the injury the seven-year-old sustained at the Cheltenham Festival.

Mullins’ star chaser sustained a stress fracture to his pelvis during the Queen Mother Champion Chase last March.

The eight-time Grade 1 winner is presently being aimed at The Shloer Chase at Cheltenham in November.
Speaking to the Irish Independent, Mullins said:

“Douvan is in tip-top shape, I am delighted to say. The Hilly Way at Cork is a race we’ve had plenty of runners in but with it being in December we’d be inclined to look at an earlier race for his comeback run, potentially.”
