Ptit Zig (blue) bids to repeat last year's win in the Grande Course de Haies
1 of 1

It may be June and the temperature is forecast to reach 28C in Paris but it's Champion Hurdle day, in France at least.

Willie Mullins is bidding for his fifth success in the Grande Course de Haies d'Auteuil and has strong claims with Shaneshill, who won the Prix la Barka at the course last month.

Last year's winner Ptit Zig (trained by Paul Nicholls) heads a three-strong British team which is completed by L'Ami Serge (Nicky Henderson) and One Track Mind (Warren Greatrex).

British sprinters Buying Trouble, Evil Spell, Wowcha, Florida Times and Poet's Princess tackle the Group 3 TRM Ballyogan Stakes at the Curragh but the home-trained Only Mine is the highest-rated runner in the field after her Group 2 second last time out.
