I WOULDN’T like to have to make the difficult choices Willie Mullins is facing about which of his horses to run in the various novice hurdles at Cheltenham. He has so many strong contenders in each race and they’re so unexposed it’s hard to know exactly which races to target.

Mullins’ toughest decisions are surely going to come in the Neptune Novices Hurdle where he has no less than 24 entrants, 15 of which look solid candidates.
