Voler La Vedette: Navan hopeful

Colm Murphy is hopeful Voler La Vedette can make the most of her sex allowance in the Grade Two Lismullen Hurdle at Navan on Sunday.

The seven-year-old mare hasn't been seen since finishing fourth to Quevega over three miles in the Ladbrokes World Series Hurdle at Punchestown in May and she drops back in trip to 2m4f for her seasonal reappearance.

The likes of Karabak, Mikael D'Haguenet and Mourad could be in opposition but Murphy says she has plenty in her favour.

"She's summered really well and she seems in great order, I couldn't be happier with her," Murphy told skysports.com.

"She's in the same boat as Big Zeb as she's as ready as we can get her but she will also improve plenty for her first run.

"However, it's been her target for a while and though it looks a competitive race on paper she gets 7lbs from all the boys so that helps."
