French Aseel - ruled out of the Triumph

Cheltenham Festival news: French Aseel misses JCB Triumph Hurdle

Leading fancy French Aseel has been ruled out of the JCB Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham.

The son of French Fifteen was a brilliant winner on his debut over timber at Leopardstown in December and was subsequently bought by Joe Donnelly and sent to Willie Mullins.

However the trainer told on Friday evening: "French Aseel has met with a setback and won't make Cheltenham."

He was as low as 5/1 for the Friday feature for which Tritonic and Zanahiyr head the market.
