Top class trainer Willie Mullins raids Thurles with 146-1 accumulator

Willie Mullins at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival

Willie Mullins is in brilliant form and the master of Closutton will raid Thurles with five great chances on Monday. If the five runners won the bet could return 146-1 at the time of posting. You can back the accumulator below with Betfair and in the process grab yourself some free bets for Cheltenham next month.


2.00 Thurles

Harrie is a nine-year-old with a very patchy overall record but must enter calculations here. He was in the process of running a huge race when falling four from home in a maiden chase here in November. If he is none the worse for those exertions, he must be a big player in a much weaker race.


3.05 Thurles

Gorky D’Airy will be partnered by top amateur rider and son of Willie, Patrick Mullins. The gelding had his first run since leaving Hugo Merienne in France at Tramore on New Year’s Day. Sent off a well backed favourite, he found Henry de Bromhead’s Minella Escape too good but he should strip much fitter here.


3.35 Thurles

Capodanno is the myracing NAP of the Day and rates as Willie’s best chance on the card for us. The ex-French horse created a huge impression at Clonmel when last seen and looks a horse going places. JP McManus’ horse could be Ballymore bound at Cheltenham next month after this.


4.10 Thurles

Fais Ton Chemin was last seen finishing runner-up in a bumper here at this venue. He makes his hurdling bow now stepping up in distance by seven furlongs. Paul Townend has an incredible 55-per-cent strike rate at the track this season so he is one to take very seriously as he is so lightly raced.


5.10 Thurles

Willie Mullins has an incredible strike rate in bumpers (usually always exceeds 40-per-cent around the country) and he can strike in the last with Cool Jet. He travelled well for a long way on debut when 4th behind Harry Alonzo at Leopardstown. This track isn’t as stiff so it should play to his strengths.
