Burning Victory takes Quevega Mares’ Hurdle at Punchestown

Burning Victory won her first race over jumps since the 2020 Triumph Hurdle when making all the running in the Quevega Mares’ Hurdle at Punchestown.
Willie Mullins’s six-year-old took advantage of Goshen’s final flight mishap at the Cheltenham Festival a couple of years ago but she has struggled over hurdles since then.
She had been over to France a couple of times to win on the Flat and finished second in the Cesarewitch in the interim, but she was cut to 7-1 from 8-1 by Betfair for the Close Brother Mares’ Hurdle next month after this success.
