Two Willie Mullins Horses to Follow Ahead of the 2019/20 Season
As expected last season was a memorable one with a number of starring performances throughout. This has only further led to excitement ahead of the upcoming campaign, as it now draws ever nearer. Here we cover two horses worth following from the all-conquering Mullins stable, who are expected to have a very successful season ahead.
Where better to start than with the Willie Mullins trained five year old, Klassical Dream. He moved to Mullins from France and has since landed four victories in succession. This started with a maiden hurdle before being stepped up to a Group one and holding on by a head from stablemate Aramon.
Klassical Dream was then sent to contest the Supreme Novices’ hurdle and provided one of the key performances of the Cheltenham festival. This saw him make most of the running and run away with the race by just over four lengths. He has since landed a third Group one in succession in the Herald Champion novice hurdle, very impressively. Klassical Dream also now heads into the current season as the ante post favourite for the Champion hurdle and is going to take all the beating. He is proving a popular selection for punters using offers available across the best betting sites uk and Klassical Dream is now a best priced 7/2 for the feature race on day one of the festival.
Chacun Pour Soi
Another horse from the formidable Willie Mullins team, this being seven year old Chacun Pour Soi. He has only made two starts for the team since coming over from France back in the latter stages of 2016. He finally made the track following a 1089 day break when contesting a beginners chase at Naas. As expected he proved different class and made all to win very impressively by 31 lengths.
Following a further 53 day break, he was stepped up to a Group one. This saw him contest the Ryanair Novice Chase at the Punchestown festival, against two recent Cheltenham festival winners in Defi Du Seuil and Duc Des Genievres. He travelled well throughout the contest and despite making several errors, he disputed the lead three out. Chacun Pour Soi then took up the running and was pressed going to the last, before staying on powerfully to win by just over four lengths. This was a hugely impressive performance considering his lack of experience. He is a horse to follow moving forward and is the current second favourite behind Altior for the Queen Mother Champion Chase this upcoming campaign.
The exciting Chacun Pour Soi wins the Ryanair Novice Chase very impressively for @WillieMullinsNH, and lands a double on the day for @Robbie_Power_ #PTown19 #PunchestownFestival pic.twitter.com/RzrFxe3MfS— Punchestown (@punchestownrace) May 2, 2019
