Un De Sceaux fine after fall


Trainer Willie Mullins insists that Un De Sceaux is absolutely fine and is showing no ill effects from his fall at Leopardstown over Christmas.

Mullins enjoyed a number of Grade One successes over the festive period and was pleased to report a clean bill of health for all of his charges as they returned to Closutton stables.

"They have all come out of Christmas well - no setbacks," he said.

"Un De Sceaux is as fresh as paint after his fall and I am keen to run him soon.

"There are two races towards the end of this month that he is entered in, one in Ireland (Tied Cottage Chase at Punchestown) and one in the UK (Clarence House Chase at Ascot).

"Long Dog has had a busy season so we might just go be easy on him now. He is unlikely to race again until Cheltenham.

"Another run before Cheltenham would be ideal for Vautour, but I'm not sure where yet.

"Faugheen, Nichols Canyon and Arctic Fire are all likely to run next in the BHP Irish Champion Hurdle."
