Wednesday decision on Dunguib's comeback run
PHILIP FENTON expects to decide on Wednesday whether Dunguib will have his first run of the season in the Limestone Lad Hurdle over 2m3f at Naas on Saturday or wait for the BHP Insurances Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown eight days later.
Available at 16-1 for the Stan James Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham, Dunguib is one of 16 entries for the Grade 3 at Naas.
Fenton said on Monday afternoon: "We will make a decision on Wednesday. The horse is in good form and never missed a day's exercise during all the bad weather, but he did miss some proper work because of it and the decision we have to make is whether to give him another week and start him off in the Irish Champion instead."
