Analifet: Expected to make a full recovery
Analifet is expected to make a complete recovery from the pelvic injury she sustained at Leopardstown on December 26.
The filly, who had been ante-post favourite for Triumph Hurdle, was pulled up early in the Knight Frank Juvenile Hurdle and has been found to have a fracture.
Although Analifet is unlikely to run again this term, trainer Willie Mullins is confident her racing career is not over.
He told At The Races: "I would think she's out for the season. As far as we are concerned there's a fracture there.
"Sometimes when they get those injuries it can be just a bad muscle tear and they can come back quicker, but it appears there is a small fracture there.
"It's a common enough thing and they can make complete recoveries.
"I think Al Kazeem had one last year and what a recovery he made. We see that recovery all the time."
