Hargam set for Istabraq Hurdle

Hargam is set to have his first race since a disappointing effort in the Champion Hurdle when he lines up at Tipperary on Sunday.

Hargam (r) will run at Tipperary

The five-year-old, trained by Nicky Henderson, was well beaten behind Annie Power at Cheltenham in March and is one of 10 entries for the Istabraq Hurdle.

The Grade Two contest is run in honour of the three-time winner of the Cheltenham showpiece, who carried the colours of Hargam's owner JP McManus.

He also has Plinth, trained by Joseph O'Brien, in the race and both are likely to take their chance.

"The two of them will run," said McManus' racing manager Frank Berry.

"Hargam is very well and Nicky is happy with him. I'd hope he'd run a good race."

Willie Mullins has a powerful four-strong team in Clondaw Warrior, Ivan Grozny, Renneti and Thomas Hobson.

Completing the entries are Bentelimar, Kylecrue, Peppino and The Game Changer.
