Faugheen on course to return

Willie Mullins reports Faugheen on course to make his long-awaited return to action in the BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown next weekend.

Faugheen is on course to return next weekend

The nine-year-old has not been seen since his victory in the same race 12 months ago, meaning he was unable to defend his Champion Hurdle crown at Cheltenham last season.

A bruised foot ruled out his comeback in the Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown in November.

"As long as he's able to do that we'll let him take his chance on Sunday."
