Willie Mullins Horses To Follow

Our experts could literally write a book on Willie Mullins’ horses to follow, but we will narrow it down as much as we can in this section, and provide all of the ante-post prices for the selected horses’ main targets.

First up, Galopin Des Champs, who is currently the ante-post favourite for next year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup. The unluckiest horse of the 2022 festival, where he came down at the last when 12 lengths clear in the Turners Novices’ Chase. He looked like a monster that day, and he bounced back by cantering home in a Grade 1 at Fairyhouse a month later. He could be the next chasing superstar, and he will have plenty of support wherever he goes.

Last year’s Champion Bumper winner, Facile Vega, is likely to attempt to continue Willie Mullins’ ridiculous record in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, and he rightly heads the ante-post market. Will you take advantage of some free bet offers and back the unbeaten son of Quevega?

Over in Britain, Willie Mullins has just one win to his name in the Tingle Creek, but last year’s Champion Chase winner, Energuneme, could well take some beating if turning up at Sandown before attempting to defend his crown at Cheltenham. Keep an eye on our ante-post markets for any major moves.

Allaho is one of the more intriguing Willie Mullins horses for the season ahead. Winner of the last two Ryanair Chases at Cheltenham, his trainer decided to step him up to three miles in the Punchestown Gold Cup, and a 14-length victory has opened up a lot of avenues in regards to trip. He heads the way in the ante-post market for both the King George VI Chase at Kempton over three miles, and for his hat-trick attempt in the Ryanair over 2m4f. Check our ante post horse racing betting markets for any clues on which path he takes.

Willie Mullins Horses for Cheltenham

We have named some of Willie Mullins’ best horses in the horses to follow section above, but with so many more superstars at his disposal, it is worth going through some more, starting with what should be another strong team bound for Cheltenham next March.

Some more Willie Mullins runners to mention are last year’s Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle winner Sir Gerhard, who holds a raft of Grade 1 entries over both hurdles and fences, and Triumph Hurdle winner Vauban, who also holds entries over both obstacles. There is also the mouth-watering chance that they could go head-to-head in either the Arkle or the Champion Hurdle. 

Speaking of the Arkle, it would be unfair to leave out former Supreme Novices’ Hurdle winner Appreciate It, who if going chasing, may be one to watch. One other name that deserves a mention is Gaillard Du Mesnil, who rarely runs a bad race, and is high in the ante post horse racing market for more than one race.

Willie Mullins Horses for the Grand National

It is now 17 years since Willie Mullins trained the winner of the Grand National, an amazing thought considering his success elsewhere. 13th was the best he could manage last season, but he may have a few live chances going into next year’s Aintree showpiece.

Stattler has shown his liking for a test of stamina in winning the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham, and has a touch of class, whilst another young chaser, Capadanno, looks like a thorough stayer in the making. The aforementioned, Gaillard Du Mesnil, could be another exciting prospect if taking the National route.

Willie Mullins Biography

Son of the legendary Paddy Mullins, trainer of the magical mare, Dawn Run, Willie Mullins learned from the best when it comes to training horses. The fact that he has surpassed his father’s success by some margin proves that he will go down in racing history as one of the greatest of all time.

Willie Mullins was raised in Goresbridge, Co Kilkenny, but now trains in Closutton, Co Carlow. He was an accomplished amateur jockey in Ireland, where he won the Amateur Champion Jockey title six times. However, given his size, training was always going to be where Willie’s career lay. He learned his trade as assistant to his father, but also spent time as the right-hand man to legendary flat racing trainer Jim Bolger.

He began training in 1988, and since then he has enjoyed incredible success both at home in Ireland, and across the pond in Britain. The list of Willie Mullins’ big-race wins contains pretty much all Grade 1s available, but it is at the Cheltenham Festival where he has really made his mark. Mullins is the most successful trainer in Festival history, having amassed a total of 88 winners. At the 2022 festival alone he recorded a record 10 wins for the week. One race that did evade him for a long time was the prestigious Gold Cup. It took until the 2019 meeting for Al Boum Photo to finally break the hoodoo, and the same horse would go on to win again the following year.

The Aintree Grand National is another race that Willie Mullins’ runners have struggled in. In fact, he has just one win in the world famous race, that being all the way back in 2005 with Hedgehunter. He has remained luckless ever since.

At home in Ireland, Mullins has won nearly every Grade 1 race on offer. 11 Irish Gold Cups, eight Punchestown Champion Hurdles, seven Punchestown Champion Chases and six Punchestown Gold Cups are just a small part of an amazing list of top-level successes. Not content with ruling the National Hunt scene, Willie Mullins horses have also won some big prizes on the flat, including at Royal Ascot and in the Irish St Leger.

Willie’s son, Patrick, has followed in his father’s footsteps by becoming one of the most successful amateur riders racing has ever seen. This is mainly down to the amazing ability of Willie being able to prepare nearly every ‘Bumper’ horse he trains to win. Patrick also serves as assistant to Mullins Snr, and it is widely believed that he will follow the path of his father by continuing the family’s training legacy when the time comes.

He has big boots to fill!
