Faugheen misses Irish Champion

Faugheen has been ruled out of his reappearance in the BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown on Sunday with a pulled muscle.

Faugheen misses his reappearance

Willie Mullins' 2015 Champion Hurdle winner has been off the track since winning the Leopardstown showpiece 12 months ago.

His season has been interrupted by a series of niggling problems, and it appears another one has struck.

With 2016 Champion Hurdle winner and stablemate Annie Power also on the sidelines, a frustrating season for Mullins shows no signs of letting up.

"I hope it's not serious," Mullins told Press Association Sport.

"It's a muscle on his hind quarters that he's pulled and he'll hopefully be all right in a few days.

"It's frustrating, as he'd done everything right at home and was ready to run. While it's only slight, I just dare not risk him."
