Plans for Vroum Vroum Mag

March 12th, 2017 | Marten's Current Racing Diary


Hi there,

The news is now through that Vroum Vroum Mag will join Limini in the line-up for the OLBG Mares’ Hurdle on Tuesday rather than tackle the Champion Hurdle.

The field includes Apple’s Jade. With both Limini and Vroum Vroum Mag owned by Rich Ricci it will be interesting to see which of the two Ruby Walsh elects to ride. The bookmakers, intriguingly, have Limini as favourite.

Willie Mullins has trained eight of the last nine winners of the race, with Quevega winning on six occasions.

The other big story this morning is the not altogether unexpected news that Neon Wolf will run in the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle on Wednesday. Harry Fry’s American, who had entries for the RSA and National Hunt Chase, will miss the Festival due to the drying ground.

You will be aware by now that Moon Racer runs in the Champion Hurdle and that Zabana misses the Festival after scoping dirty.

Bye for now
