Multiple Grade One-winning hurdler Asian Maze has been retired.

A winner of nine races over timber, including four triumphs at the highest level, Tom Mullins’ eight-year-old mare was reported to be in foal to Presenting.

“We were never able to get to the bottom of what exactly was wrong but for some reason she just wouldn’t let herself down in her races the way she used to.”
