Quevega: Set to face another star mare and even money to beat her

Quevega and Voler La Vedette remain on course for a mouthwatering clash in the Ladbrokes.com World Series Hurdle at Punchestown on April 26.

The Willie Mullins-trained Quevega has won the three-mile contest for the past two seasons and heads to Punchestown on the back of a record fourth victory in the David Nicholson Mares' Hurdle at Cheltenham.

Voler La Vedette goes to Punchestown after arguably her best ever performance when finishing a close second to Big Buck's in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle at Prestbury Park last month.

The sponsors make Quevega the even-money favourite to come out on top, with Colm Murphy's Voler La Vedette a 3-1 shot.

The Jessica Harrington-trained Oscars Well looks set to step up in trip for the three-mile contest, while other contenders include Quevega's stablemate Thousand Stars and Jonjo O'Neill's Get Me Out Of Here.
