Apple's Jade and Laurina In The Mix For Hatton's Grace

Apple's Jade and Laurina In The Mix For Hatton's Grace

Apple's Jade and Laurina are just two of the star names, declared in the field for Sunday's Hatton's Grace at Fairyhouse.

Gordon Elliott's star mare Apple's Jade beat the males in this Grade One last season, but went on to disappoint at the Cheltenham Festival against her own sex.

She did make her reappearance a successful one, when landing the Lismullen Hurdle at Navan recently, and connections are still unsure if she goes back to the Mares showpiece at Prestbury Park, or go down the avenue many believed she should of taken last year - towards the Stayers'.

Elliott has also left in last season's JCB Triumph winner Farclas, along with Dortmund Park, Tombstone, Sutton Place, and Samcro, however it looks more than likely that last season's top novice hurdle will head to Newcastle for the Fighting Fifth Hurdle.

As for Willie Mullins, he has as many as eight entries, including last season's top Mares Novice - Laurina, who was due to return in the Coral Hurdle last Saturday, but missed out over concerns on the quick ground.

The Irish Champion Trainer, also has Benie Des Dieux - who beat Apple's Jade back in March, Melon who was second in the Champion Hurdle, and Limini, who had a spell on the flats over the summer.

Bapaume, Coquin Mans, Shaneshill and Wicklow Brave complete the Mullins battalion.

The only two horses not trained by Ireland's two leading trainers are Supasundae - trained by Jessica Harrington and Joseph O'Brien's Early Doors.

The Grade 1 Hattons Grace Hurdle is due to be run at Fairyhouse on Sunday at 2:40pm, where the ground is currently good, good to firm in places.
