Coral has cut Willie Mullins to 5/1 (from 13/2) to be top trainer at the Cheltenham Festival, following good support for the Irish champion. Unsurprisingly Mullins heads to Prestbury Park with a strong looking team, with his So Young, 10/3 (from 5/1), now close to favouritism for the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle.
“Although Oscars Well remains favourite for the Neptune after the latest entry stage, So Young has been the best backed horse in the last 24 hours, and it would be no surprise to see them flip-flop at the top of the market,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
“The five-year-old is just one member of an extremely strong raiding party that Willie Mullins will be sending over, and with the likes of Quevega, Hurricane Fly and Call The Police also representing the Irish champion, it’s clear why punters are backing him to be top trainer next week,” added Stevens.
