Irish hopes are pined on Hit the Headlines for William Hill Hurdle

Nick Robson

CHARLIE SWAN is responsible for the sole Irish entry in the William Hill Lanzarote Hurdle at Kempton on Saturday with Hit The Headlines.

Formerly trained by Nicky Henderson, he made a promising debut for Swan over Christmas when fourth in a decent event at Leopardstown.

However, he would only travel over to England if the weights were favourable.

"He ran a nice race the other day," said Swan.

"It all depends what runs, though.

"Brampour is in there and he's rated 157 which would put us wrong at the weights.

"We wouldn't come over if that was the case."
