Jer's Girl was forced to miss her intended reappearance in the Lismullen Hurdle on Sunday due to a skin allergy.

Trainer Gavin Cromwell thought the problem had cleared up but it returned on the way to Navan.

The dual Grade One winner is now likely to run in the StanJames.com Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown on Sunday.

"She's in the Morgiana next week, hopefully she'll go there," Cromwell told At The Races.

"If not, she may go to Fairyhouse (Hatton's Grace), but hopefully the Morgiana.

"Hopefully we'll have her right for next week and long term it shouldn't make too much difference.

"She's versatile regarding trip. She stays well but she doesn't lack gears, either option is fine for her.

"I don't know how heavy she needs it, she was very good at Punchestown on nice ground."
