Stan James make Solwhit their 7/4 fav as only 4 top-quality hurdlers were entered for Sunday’s Dobbins & Madigans At Punchestown Hurdle.
Head of PR Charlie McCann: “Hurricane Fly’s absence is an obvious blow but last year’s multiple Grade 1 winner Solwhit was too good for his three rivals last year (including Hurricane Fly) and we make him 7/4 to follow up on Sunday. Voler La Vedette was an impressive winner on her reappearance but she has never won in Grade 1 company. Former Champion Hurdler Sublimity is the outsider of the party which shows the quality of the field but he is four years older than his three rivals and it is almost two years since he last got his head in front.”
