Voler La Vedette: Leaning towards the Lismullen Hurdle
Voler La Vedette is likely to embark on a new campaign in the Lismullen Hurdle at Navan later this month.
Colm Murphy's brilliant eight-year-old mare is also entered in the Dobbins & Madigans @ Punchestown Morgiana Hurdle on November 18, along with the likes of Hurricane Fly and the rejuvenated Go Native.
Voler La Vedette came as close as anyone to beating Big Buck's in the World Hurdle in March and then chased home Quevega at Punchestown in May and Murphy is favouring a return to Navan for the race she won 12 months ago.
"I'm not sure if she's going for the Morgiana," said Murphy.
"At this stage I'd say I'm leaning towards the Lismullen Hurdle at Navan for her.
"I'd say it's 51% the Lismullen and 49% the Morgiana."
