Mullins Charge out for Redemption

13th March 2018, 20:48 by Phill Anderson

Willie Mullins' runner was unlucky at the Festival two years ago but he will appreciate the drop back in trip at Cheltenham on Wednesday.

There have been some big price winners in recent years and the last winning favourite came back in 2003. Max Dynamite looks sure to be towards the head of the market in this year’s running although this versatile sort has to prove his stamina for this test.

Beforetheoff top-rated William Henry looked better than ever when winning a strong Lanzarote hurdle last time and he’ll have the assistance of top conditional rider James Bowen with the cheekpieces going on for the first time. Both Le Breuil and Mount Mews can also be given chances with that duo still being lightly raced with Mount Mews returning to hurdles after a spell over fences, but he still looks unexposed over the smaller obstacles. The former looks to have been kept fresh for this having not been seen since finishing second at Aintree in December.

With Ireland having won the last two runnings of this it would make sense to take a look at a reasonably priced contender from their team and one who fits the bill is VOIX DE REVE who looked likely to land the Fred Winter here two years ago when falling at the last after travelling well. He made a promising comeback this season and he’s capable of bouncing back now dropped in trip.
