Former stars lock horns at Thurles

Mikael D'Haguenet and Mourad both feature for Willie Mullins in the Thurles Racecourse Hurdle on Thursday.

The first-named looked set to make his mark in championship company after landing the 2009 Neptune Novices' Hurdle and while he has won his share of races since, he has failed to hit the expected heights.

He finished two lengths adrift of Hurricane Fly in the Morgiana when last seen, with that stablemate subsequently relinquishing his Champion Hurdle crown last week.

Multiple Graded winner Mourad has had just two runs since June 2012 and failed to beat a runner on his most recent appearance in the Limestone Lad Hurdle.

Mullins will be hoping to get off to a winning start with Local Celebrity in the Templemore Beginners Chase.

The 10-year-old fell in a race won by Trifolium back in November and has been given plenty of time to get over that mishap.

An Dearthair Og broke his duck in no uncertain terms at Wexford on Monday and Henry de Bromhead turns him out again quickly under a penalty in the Jimmy Neville Memorial Handicap Chase.

Sarah Battle also makes a swift reappearance, having managed to place only fifth when sent off favourite at Limerick last weekend. She tries her luck again in the Clonoulty Handicap Hurdle.

Gold Cup-winning trainer Jim Culloty fields Prince Of Lombardy in the Devil's Bit Maiden Hurdle, while Archie Meade, who was pulled up in the Thyestes Chase, tackles an easier assignment in the Cashel Beginners Chase.
