Footpad won't contest the Betfair Hurdle

Connections have confirmed that the Willie Mullins-trained six-year-old will not be taking up his entry in the Grade Three handicap, for which he was as short as 10/1.

Anthony Bromley, racing manager for owners Simon Munir and Isaac Souede, said: "He is entered in the Stayers' Hurdle and the Champion Hurdle and it is not set in stone which race he will go for yet."

Footpad was denied a third win at the top level at last month when finding only Petit Mouchoir too strong in the Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown.
