Trainer To Follow - Willie Mullins

Willie Mullins is the man to be on again on day two of the meeting and in the opener he has a strong favourite in Impaire Et Passe who will be very tough to beat but Gaelic Warrior and Champ Kiely are live players.

In the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase Sir Gerhard has come for support in the market and will love the soft ground, but Mullins also has Ramillies, Bronn and Adamantly Chosen who could run into a place.

Mullins has two at a big price in Icare Allen and Scaramanga who will be looking to pick up place money in the Coral Cup and then in then in the Queen Mother Champion Chase, Energumene will looking to land back to back renewals.

Franco De Port is a Grade One winner looking to step up in trip in the Cross Country Chase and it is surprising to see Willie Mullins have a runner in that event all together.

The Closutton maestro has some live chances in the Grand Annual with the talented mare Dinoblue sure to go close and Dads Lads looks to have been saved for this all season.

Finally in the Champion Bumper Mullins has a serious amount of runners with his best chances in the betting looking to be It's For Me, Fun Fun Fun and Fact To File.

Jockey To Follow - Michael O'Sullivan

Michael O'Sullivan has some nice chances on the second day of the festival with Good Land looking to make it back to back Grade One wins in the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle.

In the Coral Cup O'Sullivan teams up with Noel Meade on Grade One performer Beacon Edge who could be well handicapped off 147, especially with the jockey taking off 3lb.

Finally the rider gets the leg up on the 33/1 chance Loughglynn for Willie Mullins who was a nice winner last time on soft ground and will love conditions again.
