Dublin Racing Festival Tips: the 40-1 Willie Mullins accumulator bookies fear Saturday 😱

Douvan wins the 2015 Supreme Novices Hurdle at Cheltenham

The name Willie Mullins puts fear into the bookmakers at the Dublin Racing Festival every year. This is the last big festival before we get to the Cheltenham Festival in March in a few week’s time. Adrian Wall has highlighted the Mullins horses to follow at Leopardstown on Saturday and they combine to form a tasty 40-1 accumulator. Please note prices are subject to change and will vary from bookmaker to bookmaker. You can back the accumulator by adding straight to your betslip using the bet365 banner below.


Vauban (6-4)
Spring Juvenile Hurdle
1.35 Leopardstown (Saturday)

Exciting prospect for Rich Ricci and may well end up favourite for the Triumph Hurdle off the back of this race. Sent off the 4-9 favourite on stable debut, the dual French Flat winner was beaten by no other than Pied Piper at Punchestown in December. That horse bolted up at Cheltenham last week in a Grade 2 so the form looks top notch.


Blue Lord (13-8)
Irish Arkle Novice Chase
2.10 Leopardstown (Saturday)

Might need to be a good horse to give Riviere D’Etel weight and win but he has done nothing wrong over fences to date. A sketchy hurdler at best, he looks a far better chaser already and has bolted up in both of his runs over larger obstacles. The form doesn’t look like much but you can only beat what is put in front of you.


Kemboy (5-2)
Irish Gold Cup
3.15 Leopardstown (Saturday)

Bounced right back to near his best best when running a close third behind Galvin and A Plus Tard in the Savills Chase here in December. He doesn’t mind a bit of good ground so conditions should be perfect for him. Also, he has no Cheltenham Festival entry so this is the be all and end all for him at the moment.


Facile Vega (4-5)
Goffs Future Stars Bumper
4.25 Leopardstown (Saturday)

Extremely well bred son of Quevega and Walk In The Park, impeccable pedigree. Bolted up over this course and distance on debut and the second has since come out to frank the form by winning since. He could go off a warm order for the bumper at the festival in March if he wins this decisively.
