Two winners most likely for Mullins say Boyles

Such is the strength of the hand that Willie Mullins (right) has to play tomorrow afternoon, bookmakers Boylesports have opened up a book on how many winners the champion trainer will have on day one .

Boylesports make it 11/8 that he'll enjoy two winners on the day, while it's 5/2 that he'll emulate 2011 when having three winners on day one.

€1 Lucky 15

Douvan 1.30 13/8

Un De Sceaux 2.10 4/7

Annie Power 4.00 4/7

The Job Is Right 4.40 8/1

Potential Returns: €238.69

Many will be looking at putting all four Willie Mullins hotpots into an opening day accumulator but the Champion Hurdle is the race I have opted to leave out.

While Faugheen does look the class horse and could win emphatically, the opposition is obviously very strong and The Job Is Right is preferred for some value at 8/1 in the four-miler.

€10 e/w Double

Black Thunder 2.40 20/1

The Job Is Right 4.40 8/1

Potential Returns: €2,070

Paul Nicholls' Black Thunder looks overpriced at 20/1 and is included in an each-way double with the aforementioned The Job Is Right.

Day One Banker

Douvan 1.30 13/8

It could be a very good start for the Irish if Douvan lives up to expectations and he is probably the opening day banker.
