Voler La Vedette is set to head to Cheltenham for a clash with Big Buck’s without a prep run, her trainer Colm Murphy revealed.
The star mare is set to run in the Ladbrokes Word Hurdle and connections have decided against running Ladbrokes Boyne Hurdle at Navan on Sunday, a race that she won 12 months ago.
Speakin to attheraces Murphy said “I’ve had a chat with the owners and we’ve decided she won’t run at the weekend. She’ll go straight to Cheltenham for the World Hurdle,” said Murphy.
“We’ll just keep her ticking over now. She seems in great form and I’m very happy with her.
“It’s more than likely she’ll go for the World Hurdle, not the (David Nicholson) Mares’ Hurdle.”
