Tony Martin has revealed plans to send Melbourne Cup runner-up Heartbreak City back over hurdles before the end of the month.
Last season’s Ebor winner at York turned in a mighty performance in Australia in November when he got to within a head of Almandin – much to the joy of his enthusiastic owners, the Here For The Craic Partnership.
But connections are now keen to revert to hurdling, with Heartbreak City pencilled in for a big date at Leopardstown on January 22.
Martin said: “We are thinking of going for the Coral.ie Hurdle at Leopardstown.
“We will have to talk to the other owners in Australia but that is the plan at the moment.
“He’s had a little break after the Melbourne Cup but is ready to go now.”
