Emma Lavelle has not ruled out a Punchestown Festival visit for her Stayers’ Hurdle winner Paisley Park.
The seven-year-old was most impressive as he won at the Cheltenham Festival to continue a marvellous season.
Lavelle dismissed any notion of Paisley Park running at Aintree in three weeks time, but a trip to Punchestown at the end of April could still happen.
She said: “He’s in great order, but Aintree will come too soon. It’s too close to Cheltenham.
“We’ll see what happens whether we go to Punchestown or not. He’s had a great year. He’s only seven years old.
“He’s got a great future ahead of him, touch wood.”
