Hills are going best price about Min, Douvan, Annie Power and Vroum Vroum Mag, with the acca paying over 25/1

We’re just days away from the 2016 Cheltenham Festival and Day 1 looks set to be typically exciting, with Willie Mullins once again lining up the cavalry for an almighty charge.

Mullins might not have Faugheen running in the Champion Hurdle, although his mare Annie Power heads the market, with Min, Douvan and Vroum Vroum Mag also favourites for their respective races.

William Hill taking a gamble!
Despite Mullins nearly taking the bookies to the cleaners twelve months ago, William Hill are sticking their heads above the parapet with the latest best odds.

Min 2/1 to win the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle
Douvan 2/5 to win the Arkle Chase
Annie Power 2/1 to win the Champion Hurdle
Vroum Vroum Mag 11/10 to win the Mares’ Hurdle

The accumulator pays over 25/1 should you want a dabble on the Mullins quartet, while we really like the 15/8 about Douvan and Vroum Vroum Mag getting the job done in their respective races.

Min was briefly out to 5/2 on Wednesday morning as rumours circulated that Ruby Walsh might be considering Yorkhill instead of the long-established Supreme favourite, although the Rich Ricci horse is now holding steady at 2/1.

Douvan seems like banker material to most people, with odds of 2/5 not for the faint-hearted in a single bet although last year’s Supreme winner looks set to be included in a bunch of multiple bets.

Annie Power was originally favourite for the Mares’ race and has been swiftly pointed at the Champion Hurdle, with mixed messages coming from the Mullins camp surrounding her chances.

Vroum Vroum Mag looks like another banker based on what she’s done thus far and will go off odds-on for the Mares’ race.
