Annie Power To Miss The Cheltenham Festival

Wednesday 25th January 2017

News has broken this morning that defending Champion Hurdle heroine, Annie Power, will miss the defence of her title having picked up a leg injury. The 9YO had not been seen this season but reports of a comeback next month have now been put on hold after a problem was discovered.

Willie Mullins has immediately ruled her out of the Cheltenham Festival but hasn't ruled out her out completely of appearing at some stage in the spring.

One of the most popular horses in training, Annie Power swept all before her last season as she won the Champion Hurdle and the Aintree Hurdle and it was hoped she would be able to replicate those feats.

Attention for Rich Ricci and Willie Mullins will now turn to another stable-star with Faugheen set to make his first start for a year in the Irish Champion Hurdle. Conenctions will surely hope that the 2015 Champion Hurdler can show all of his old talent on Sunday, especially in the wake of the news about Annie Power.

The Champion Hurdle betting market has been shaken up as a result of the Annie news with Faugheen now as short as 4/5f, from 5/4f, with bet365. Other horses who could benefit from the absence of Annie Power include Yanworth, who is into 4/1, from 5s, and Petit Mouchoir, who is now a 6/1, from 7s, shot for the day one highlight.
