Mullins: Faugheen a lot better
Willie Mullins issued an upbeat bulletin on Faugheen having been forced to rule him out of the BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle on Sunday.
Faugheen: Missed weekend engagement
Winner of the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham in 2015, the nine-year-old has not been seen since landing the Irish Champion 12 months ago.
He had been set to defend his crown in an eagerly-awaited comeback, but met with a setback on Saturday, as Mullins revealed he had pulled a muscle in his hind quarters, although he believed it was not serious.
Asked on Monday afternoon if there had been an improvement, Mullins said: "Yes. He is a lot better today."
