Seamus Mullins reveals County Hurdle plan for Chesterfield

racing

Seamus Mullins is plotting a spring campaign with Chesterfield - with the Randox Health County Hurdle at Cheltenham as his first objective.

Having won at the Grand National meeting and the Scottish Champion Hurdle last year, Mullins is hoping for something similar again.

He has not run since being beaten 10 lengths by champion hurdler Buveur D'Air in the Christmas Hurdle.

"There's simply no point in running him at this time of year, he can't go through the ground," said Wiltshire-based Mullins.

"He can just about handle soft, but any worse than that and it is a waste of time.

"He won't run until the County Hurdle now, that's his first aim, and then Aintree and Ayr again.

"Of course, if he manages to win the County Hurdle that might have to change, but that's what we're thinking.

"The County should be perfect, a strong pace where he can get cover and he's won there before."
