Douvan one of 18 Willie Mullins entries for Supreme
on 29 January 2015
There are a total of 84 entries for the opening race of the 2015 Cheltenham Festival

The 2/1 ante-post favourite Douvan tops 84 entries for the Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

The five-year-old is unbeaten in two starts for Ireland's champion trainer Willie Mullins and was not extended to win the Grade 2 Moscow Flyer Novice Hurdle at Punchestown on January 10th.

Mullins accounts for 18 of the 38 Irish-trained horses and is seeking a third consecutive win in the Supreme following on from Vautour and Champagne Fever. The Co Carlow handler has also put in another ex-French horse, Alvisio Ville, a facile winner at Leopardstown over Christmas. His other entries include Grade 1 Royal Bond Novice Hurdle victor Nichols Canyon and Tell Us More, who was narrowly beaten by stable companion McKinley in the Grade 1 Lawlor's Hotel Novice Hurdle at Naas on January 4th.

Dermot Weld has two engaged, headed by last year's Weatherbys Champion Bumper hero Silver Concorde, while Henry de Bromhead is responsible for Grade 1 scorer Sizing John and the unbeaten Identity Thief.

L'Ami Serge is the shortest-priced British-trained entry at 9/2 after three impressive victories since joining Nicky Henderson. The French import recorded a 14-length victory in the Grade 1 Tolworth Hurdle on his latest start at Sandown Park on January 3rd.

Henderson has also entered Peace And Co, who is ante-post favourite for the JCB Triumph Hurdle, Doncaster scorer Cardinal Walter and Aintree maiden hurdle winner Hunters' Hoof.

Other eye-catching entries include Jollyallan (Harry Fry) and Seedling (Warren Greatrex), who are both unbeaten in three starts over hurdles this season, plus high-class Flat recruit Dabadiyan (Gary Moore).
