Punchestown News: Mullins Trio On Course For BoyleSports Chase at Punchestown

Posted: 28th Jan 2016

Mullins Pleased with Felix Yonger, Mozoltov and Twinlight
Flemenstar Team Ready for Sunday’s Challenge  

 

Felix Yonger leads a trio of Willie Mullins trained contenders in the 2016 BoyleSports Tied Cottage Chase at Punchestown next Sunday (31st January) as the champion trainer bids for his third win of the contest in six years.

Victorious in the 2015 BoyleSports Champion Chase, Felix Yonger is currently 4/5 with the sponsors and will be joined by stablemates Twinlight and Mozoltov. According to Mullins all three will be declared “It looks like all three of ours will run on Sunday in the BoyleSports Chase. They all worked well this morning so hopefully one of them will deliver”.

Anthony Curran, trainer of Flemenstar is looking forward to the challenge “Flemenstar is in great form since his win at Christmas where he showed that he retains the speed that he always had. Curran continued “While it helps that there is no Un De Sceaux to take on, Willie Mullins still sends a very strong team and they will take all the beating”.

The Gordon Elliott trained Bright New Dawn could also line up alongside Henry de Bromhead’s Days Hotel and John Ryan’s Draycott Place. Nearly Nama’d from the Sandra Hughes stable is an unlikely runner.

Liam Glynn, Boylesports spokesperson said “Willie Mullins has landed two of the last five runnings of the BoyleSports Tied Cottage and he will be hoping for a third victory in six years. Felix Yonger currently heads the betting at 4/5 but it’s stablemate Mozoltov that has been clipped into 5/1 from 6/1 in the past twenty four hours”.

The going at Punchestown is currently soft, heavy in places and the forecast is unsettled. There will be fresh ground provided on both the chase and hurdle tracks.
