Willie Mullins Entries for Day 3 of the Cheltenham Festival: Check out all his Thursday's runners

Klassical Dream bids for glory in the Stayers' Hurdle
Klassical Dream bids for glory in the Stayers' Hurdle

There will yet again be a strong Willie Mullins contingent taking to the track on Thursday, and there's no doubt that Galopin Des Champs, Allaho and Klassical Dream will be two of his shining lights. We take a look at all the Mullins runners here...

13:30 - Turners Novices' Chase

Saddling half of the four-strong field, Willie Muillins will be hoping that last year's Martin Pipe winner Galopin Des Champs can claim his second Cheltenham Festival success, but the unbeaten novice chaser will face a lively adversary in the shape of Henry De Bromhead's Bob Olinger. The pair dominate the betting for this contest, but Galopin Des Champs has been imperious in his fledgling chase career to date, so has to be tough to beat. 

El Barra will add more strength in depth to the Mullins charge, and he broke his maiden chasing tag at the third time of asking last time out in a beginners chase, but this is a whole new world for the Closutton inmate and he could struggle to figure.

14:50 - Ryanair Chase

A stunning winner of the Ryanair Chase 12 months ago, Allaho will be a warm order to retain his 2m 5f Grade 1 crown on Thursday, and he is likely to be the Willie Mullins banker on Thursday. His win in the John Durkan at Punchestown earlier in the season was superb, while he followed up with a facile win at Thurles, and heads into the race as a red-hot favourite.

Saddling three in this contest, Mullins will also be represented by the Cheltenham Festival regular Melon, who often runs a big race in defeat, while Janidil will add more depth to the race for Mullins, who should be able to claim victory in this contest.

15:30 - Stayers' Hurdle

Willie Mullins saddled back-to-back winners in the Stayers' Hurdle in 2017 and 2018 with Nichols Canyon and Penhill claiming glory, and he will have a huge chance of landing the prize once again as he saddles the top notch Klassical Dream, who is currently vying for favouritism in the event.

A former winner of the Supreme Novices' Hurdle, Klassical Dream is seen over longer distances these days, and he showed when beating reigning champion Flooring Porter two starts ago that he can be a top class staying hurdler. He flopped last time out in the Galmoy Hurdle, but a return to Cheltenham can bring out the best in him,

16:50 - Mares' Novices' Hurdle

Dominant in this race since its inception, Willie Mullins has saddled the winner in five of the six renewals and he will unleash a strong squad at the 2022 renewal, with the pair of Dinoblue and Brandy Love spearheading his team. Once raced, Dinoblue shaped like she could be a really smart mare when breezing clear on debut, and she has been well backed in the weeks leading up to the event, while Brandy Love has been competing at a high level this term and will be another notable Mullins runner here.

Former Grade 1 winner Statuaire is a big price to land this prize, while Grangee is another prominent figure in the betting. Completing the Willie Mullins-trained septet are Braganza, Hors Piste and Heia, and they may not lack the class of their stablemates, but should still run decent races in an event that should go the way of the Closutton yard.
