Willie Mullins is set for another busy day at the Cheltenham Festival, and you can check out all his runners taking to the track on Wednesday afternoon here...

13:30 - Ballymore Novices' Hurdle

One of the most hotly-anticipated runners at the entire Cheltenham Festival is Sir Gerhard, who is a red-hot favourite for the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle, and he will fly the flag for the Willie Mullins clan in the Wednesday opener. Last year's impressive Champion Bumper winner has taken to the hurdling game like a duck to water, and he will be extremely tough to beat in the 13:30 contest. Mullins will have three taking their chance in this event, and while Sir Gerhard is the most obvious contender to challenge, the pair of Haxo and Whatdeawant add depth to the Closutton team, but both will struggle to play a starring role.

Cheltenham Tips

14:10 - Brown Advisory Novices' Chase

Much has been made of the clash between Bravemansgame and L'Homme Presse in the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase, but the Mullins team could have a couple of eye-catching contenders that could run well at a decent price. Second behind Bob Olinger in a Grade 3 event two starts ago, Capodanno has shown he has talent over fences, but he was a faller last time out, so will need to bounce back here. Gaillard Du Mesnil was behind Capodanno in that aforementioned Grade 3 event, and he then went on to finish third behind Galopin Des Champs, which is another solid piece of form, so they have to be respected here.

14:50 - Coral Cup

A maximum field of 26 will line up for the hugely competitive Coral Cup at 14:50 and Willie Mullins will saddle a pair of contenders in the 2m 5f contest. Making his first start this season on Wednesday, Ganapathi will be hoping to recapture the form that saw him finish second in a Grade 2 novice hurdle, but it's going to be tough on his seasonal reappearance. Maze Runner is around a 33/1 chance, at the time of writing, and the Co. Carlow inmate was last seen finishing a creditable sixth in a competitive Leopardstown handicap hurdle, and he could be a lively each-way player here.

15:30 - Queen Mother Champion Chase

Willie Mullins unleashes a double-pronged attack on Shishkin in the Queen Mother Champion Chase, and both Energumene and Chacun Pour Soi will fancy putting it up to the Nicky Henderson-trained hotpot, who is likely to be a warm order for two-mile Championship glory. 

Energumene failed in his bid to hand Shishkin his first defeat over fences when he put up a valiant effort in defeat in the Grade 1 Clarence House Chase at Ascot, and the top notch speedster will look to produce a fine lead-all-the-way performance on Wednesday. Sent off an odds-on favourite for last season's Champion Chase, Chacun Pour Soi could only finish third and was a huge disappointment, but he has warmed up for this year's contest with a taking victory last time out, and he could be the forgotten horse in the race.

16:10 - Cross Country Chase

Willie Mullins has yet to taste victory in the Cross Country Chase, and it's going to be tough for him to land the prize in 2022 as the legendary Tiger Roll will head into the contest as a warm order. Mullins will be solely represented by the classy handicap chaser Brahma Bull, who was last seen pulling up in the Thyestes Chase at Gowran Park.

Prior to that he finished a distant third behind leading Cheltenham Gold Cup hope Al Boum Photo at Tramore on New Year's Day, and he will tackle this different discipline on day two of the festival, and it's going to be tough for him to produce an effort that can topple Tiger Roll.

17:30 - Champion Bumper

Seven of the 22 runners in the Champion Bumper belong to Willie Mullins, but the only one being talked about is the hugely exciting Facile Vega, who is a warm order to claim the coveted Flat crown. Imperious on both racecourse starts, the son of Quevega will face a lively rival in the shape of Gordon Elliott's American Mike, but Facile Vega will be the spearhead of the Mullins charge here.

Redemption Day and James's Gate are another brace of Mullins contenders that have shaped with real promise and are sure to prove popular among each-way punters, while the quartet of Houlanbatordechais, Madmansgame, Seabank Bistro and Viva Devito add depth to the Mullins gang.
