WILLIE MULLINS WILL have three horses in this year’s Stan James Champion Hurdle but Limini will not be among them.

While Footpad, Vroum Vroum Mag and Wicklow Brave are all among the 13 declared for Tuesday’s race, last year’s Mares Novice Hurdle winner — priced as short as 6/1 last night — is going to run elsewhere.

More than likely, the six-year-old will take part in the OLBG Mares Hurdle on the same day, where she’ll take on Apples Jade.

It’s still possible Vroum Vroum Mag could take part in the same race but Mullins has not indicated his final decision for her yet.

Limini is 11/10 favourite for the Mares Hurdle while Yanworth is the new 5/2 favourite for the Champion Hurdle.
