Ruby: If Faugheen does what he's doing at home, he'll win

Ruby Walsh knows Faugheen better than most and having watched him work at Willie Mullins' Closutton base, the Irish champion jockey has full faith that the 'Machine' will bounce back to his best at today's Dublin Racing Festival.

Walsh - currently nursing a broken leg but expected to return in time for next month's Cheltenham Festival - expects the 2015 Champion Hurdle hero to consign memories of a sub-par display at Christmas to a dark corner and show his true class in the BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown.

"I'm a fully paid-up member of the Faugheen fan club. If he does what he's been doing at home then he'll do what Faugheen has always done bar once. He's working really, really well. He's in really good order," Paddy Power racing ambassador Walsh said.

"We can't explain what happened and that means we're unable to correct what happened. Maybe there's nothing to correct, we'll only find out in the race.

"If he went straight to the Irish Champion Hurdle after winning the Morgiana, he would be 2/11."
