Henderson optimstic over Buveur D’Air return

Nicky Henderson is optimistic about dual Cheltenham champion Buveur D’Air
returning to action after suffering a freak injury.

The nine-year-old’s season was ended prematurely after sustaining a freak
injury in his shock defeat in the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle in

Connections confirmed that a piece of wood had become embedded in his foot and
surgery was required to remove the splinter.

It was feared that Buveur D’Air, who has been recovering at Donnington Grove
Veterinary Surgery, might not race again, however, Henderson is hopeful of
seeing his stable star back in action in the future.

Henderson said: “We would love Buveur D’Air back and there is every reason
to hope that he will be.

“It was about as freak an injury as you will ever see. The only thing that
you will learn from that is there are things that happen in a year that we have
not seen in 40 years now.”
