Mikael D'Haguenet

Age: 8

Trainer: Willie Mullins

Notable Race Wins:-

Ballymore Novices' Hurdle (Neptune Investment): 2009

Champion Novice Hurdle: 2009

Mikael D'haguenet was one of the most disappointing jumping recruits last season as he couldn't emulate his classy hurdles form over the larger obstacles for trainer Willie Mullins.

Having headed to the 2009 Cheltenham Festival unbeaten over timber, the Co. Carlow inmate duly stormed to a one-and-three-quarter length success in the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle (now Neptune Investment Novices' Hurdle) beating some classy rivals including Diamond Harry.

He then enhanced his reputation by easing to victory in the Grade One Champion Novice Hurdle at the Punchestown Festival beating stablemate Cousin Vinny by four lengths.

However, injury problems didn't see Mikael D'haguenet back on the racecourse until December 2010 and on his first race over fences fell at the last obstacle when looking like the winner.  Since then it has appeared to go downhill with a fall in the 2011 RSA Chase being another lowlight.

Nevertheless, if Mullins can get his jumping improved with plenty of schooling then he is certainly one to watch out for in the 2011/2012 season.  A potential World Hurdle candidate he will have to emulate his novice hurdle form.

Potential Races for 2011/2012 Season

World Hurdle

Form for 2011/2012 Season

  • 13/11/11 - Lismullen Hurdle - Navan (3rd of 8 - SP 7/4) - Mikael D'Haguenet started off his new campaign with a disappointing performance in the Lismullen Hurdle as he could only finish third to Voler La Vedette.  He seemed to relish the return to hurdles, but when pushed to challenge Colm Murphy's mare, he seemed to struggle and was emphatically beaten in what will hopefully do the seven-year-old the world of good in line for his next outing.
  • 03/12/11 - Trinity Hurdle - Fairyhouse (1st of 8 - SP Evens Fav) - Mikael D'Haguenet finally returned to the winners enclosure after cheekily grabbing glory in a Fairyhouse contest at their Winter Festival.  Sent off Evens favourite, the Willie Mullins-trained raider was expected to win easy, but when falling behind after the last it looked dangerous, but he duly picked up in the closing stages to win with aplomb by one-and-a-half lengths.
  • 31/12/11 - Follow Punchestown on Facebook Hurdle - Punchestown (1st of 4 - SP 2/5 Fav) - Another encouraging display from the top class novice could now give him the confidence to step back up in grade.  Sent off a short-priced favourite for this four-runner contest, he never looked in danger as he sauntered to a seven-and-a-half-length success, but his next assignment will surely tell us more about his current level.
  • 21/01/12 - Limestone Lad Hurdle - Naas (1st of 4 - SP 2/9 Fav) - Mikael D'Haguenet continued to impress in the Limestone Lad Hurdle at Naas as he sauntered to a seven length success and was instantly slashed for the Champion Hurdle and the World Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.  He eased to the front and duly pulled clear of his rivals and his owner Rich Ricci feels he is now showing his 'old swagger'.
  • 19/02/12 - Ladbrokes Boyne Hurdle - Naas (2nd of 8 - SP 4/11 Fav) - Mikael D'Haguenet struggled to keep his winning run going as he was forced to settle for second place behing the classy Mourad in the Grade Two Ladbrokes Boyne Hurdle. He struggled to pick up the former World Hurdle third up the home straight and had to settle for the minor honours.
  • 15/03/12 - Ladbrokes World Hurdle - Cheltenham (PU- SP 50/1) - Outclassed in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle, Mikael D'Haguenet was eventually pulled up by Davy Condon as he struggled to live with the injection of pace at the back of the home straight.  When out of contention, Mullins raider was rightly pulled up and he will have to wait for a less stiffer task to return to winning ways.
