Liegonniere career in balance

Arvika Ligeonniere's career hangs in the balance after he was injured when landing the Normans Grove Chase at Fairyhouse earlier this month.

Trainer Willie Mullins has revealed that the four-times Grade One-winning chaser, owned by Rich Ricci, may not race again after making it 10 victories from 18 starts on ground officially described as soft.

"I'm very worried about the ground at Fairyhouse. He got injured there the last day after putting in an exhibition of jumping, so I'm disappointed with that," Mullins told At The Races.

"I doubt it now if he'll be back. It might be the end of the road for him. We'll see how it is."
