Voler La Vedette: Chasing her first win at Grade One level

Colm Murphy hopes Voler La Vedette can claim the first Grade One prize of her career in Sunday's Bar One Racing Hatton's Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse.

The seven-year-old was beaten a little over three lengths by the mighty Hurricane Fly in a stronger renewal of the same contest 12 months ago and returns to the County Meath track in every bit as good a form having bolted up in the Lismullen Hurdle at Navan last month.

"It's a small but select field. There might not be many runners but there are no slouches in there," said Murphy.

"We're happy with our lady and she's in good form. She won really well in Navan the last day and was good in this race last year, so fingers crossed she runs up to her best and she can run another big one."

Although Hurricane Fly is not in attendance this year, his trainer Willie Mullins still has a strong hand with Mourad and Final Approach.
