Mullins v Elliott battle moves to Cheltenham

image preview

The intense competition between horse trainers Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott, which has lit up the NH trainers championship in Ireland both this and last season, will move across the water next week as Elliott attempts to repeat his achievement of 2017 in dislodging Mullins from his perch at the top of the Cheltenham trainers' tree.

Irish to have a great week at Cheltenham, but expect no records from Willie

Now that the election is over (almost), we can concentrate fully on what will unfold in the Cotswolds for four hectic days next week. There are certain acres of ground which are held sacred by followers of sport in this country. Horse Racing, and particularly National Hunt Racing, also has its sacred piece of ground where man and beast combine in pursuit of their holy grail. The irony for Irish National Hunt fans is that these few acres are in a town in the Cotswolds that couldn't be more English. All that changes next week, when an estimated 15,000 Irish people descend on the town.

Tuam breeder hoping for further Cheltenham success

image preview

A 70-year-old GP from Tuam will notice his own heart rate rise significantly at around 3.30pm next Tuesday afternoon. Dr John Waldron has a very special connection to the Champion Hurdle antepost favourite Faugheen, as he bred the seven-year-old gelding.

Irish favourites to dominate opening day

There are certain acres of ground which are held sacred by followers of sport in this country. For those involved with the GAA it is a few acres of land off Jones Road in Dublin 3. For those who support Soccer and Rugby, it is a patch of land adjacent to Lansdowne Road in the south of the city. On these fields heros are made. Men and women gain reputations that last a lifetime and beyond for their endeavours on these pitches.

From the horse’s mouth.. Cheltenham Preview Night

The annual Cheltenham Preview Night for charity will take place on Monday (March 3) in the Salthill Hotel.

Willie Mullins: A man for all seasons

image preview

Willie Mullins has won more important races at the Cheltenham festival than the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle. However, I'm sure that very few winners he trains there will give the wider Mullins family greater satisfaction than seeing Sir Des Champs come from an almost impossible position, to secure victory in the final strides, in the second last race of last week's festival. For this observer, it was a fitting finale to what had been a wonderful week for Irish trained horses, and particularly those of Kilkenny man, Willie Mullins.
