Myska on course for Mares

The six-year-old has an unblemished record

Myska is set to be seen on track one more time before the new Trull House Stud Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

The Willie Mullins-trained-mare is currently second favourite in the betting for the race behind stablemate Limini.

The six-year-old retained her unblemished record with an impressive victory at Taunton last time out.

And Mullins is now looking at the Solerina Mares' Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse on January 30 or the Weatherbys GSB Jane Seymour Mares' Novices' Hurdle at Sandown as possible targets ahead of the Festival.

"Myska is in really good order. She's fine after her win in Taunton and she's now either going to Fairyhouse on the 30th for a Grade Three or to Sandown," said Steve Massey of owners, the Supreme Horse Racing Club.

"Willie's got Limini as well, so I imagine one will go one way and the other horse will go for the other race.

"Myska is also entered in the Grade One Deloitte as well. We think a lot about her. She's still a bit green so she needs another race before Cheltenham."
