The competition between horses trained in Ireland and those trained in the UK is at its most intense in a town deep in The Cotswolds in the middle week of March.
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.
