Who To Follow On Day Two Of The Dublin Racing Festival

Trainer To Follow - Willie Mullins

Willie Mullins looks to have the favourites for most of the big races on the day two of the Dublin Racing festival and you can't look past following him throughout the day again.

Whilst holding the leading chances in most of the handicap events, in the Grade One feature races he will be hoping the likes of Appreciate It, Monkfish and Brandy Love can prove to be viable favourites for the big events.

In the Irish Gold Cup which has won in the past he holds two of the five entires with Kemboy and Melon being hard to split in the Savills Chase and once again in this market is pretty much the same.

He has an abundance of talent on show across the second day and it is tricky not to see him picking up some winners and adding to his strike rate of 28% at Leopardstown over the last 12 months.

Jockey To Follow - Mark Walsh

Mark Walsh is set for a stellar two days at Leopardstown, holding nice rides on both the first and second day, but on Sunday he seems to hold the best of his chances.

One of his big rides comes in the three mile William Fry Handicap Hurdle and Damalisque is the 5/1 favourite that looks a horse massively on the upgrade and should be able to handle his 12lb hike in the weights.

He sits on Andy Dufresne in the Flogas Novice Chase who could be a big price at 12/1 holding bundles of ability after being bought for £330,000.

Mark Walsh is a jockey in supreme form heading into the meeting having had five winners from his last 18 runners and that sees him pose a 27.78% strike rate.
