No Punchestown bid for Pipe aces.

HORS LA LOI and Majadou, two of Martin Pipe's stars this season, have been let down and will not be travelling to Ireland for the Punchestown Festival.

"Both of them will be going out in the field, they won't run in Ireland," Pipe revealed.

"Hors La Loi has done us proud since being bought from France and is a very exciting horse for next season.

"His owner, Paul Green, has said he will be trained for the Champion or the Stayers' Hurdle, and we'll be aiming at those next term.

"Majadou has also been in great form, even though he disappointed at Aintree. He's a lovely horse to look forward to."

Hors La Loi hit the headlines with his runaway success in the Citroen Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham, and he followed up in the Glenlivet Anniversary 4-Y-O Novices' Hurdle at Aintree. Majadou's big-race success came in the Mildmay Of Flete at Cheltenham.
