Mullins confirms Emery will be added to Champion Hurdle field
on 16 February 2020
The eight-year-old was an easy winner of the Grade 3 Red Mills Trial Hurdle at Gowran Park on Saturday

CILAOS Emery is to be supplemented for the Unibet Champion Hurdle following his victory at Gowran Park on Saturday.

The eight-year-old’s easy win in the Grade 3 Red Mills Trial Hurdle has persuaded trainer Willie Mullins to throw Cilaos Emery into the mix for the two-mile championship at the Cheltenham Festival.

“The plan is to supplement, costing £22,500, Cilaos Emery for the Champion Hurdle,” said the Closutton handler.

Mullins is also considering Cheltenham for Penhill and Bachasson, after they finished second and third respectively in the Boyne Hurdle at Navan.

“Bachasson ran well and I’ll look for a nice race for him somewhere. He looked as though he could come on for the run and he could run in the Coral Cup,” he said.

“Penhill will run in the Stayers’ Hurdle next.”
