Willie Mullins Day 1 Cheltenham accumulator: 20/1 Cheltenham four-fold

Willie Mullins has 94 Cheltenham Festival winners to his name and Tuesday represents a fantastic opportunity to close in on an unprecedented century.

The record-breaking Irish trainer is famed for his successes on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival and a variety of his stable stars are in action as the greatest show on turf gets underway.

The below four-fold accumulator at Cheltenham pays at odds of 20/1 at current prices.

(Any odds displayed are subject to fluctuation).

4/5
5:30 - National Hunt Challenge Cup - Embassy Gardens -
15/8

Arkle Chase - Gaelic Warrior

The heavy ground at Cheltenham provides ideal conditions for Gaelic Warrior.

After finishing as a Festival runner-up twice (2022 Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle and 2023 Ballymore Novices' Hurdle), Mullins will be hoping that one of his stable stars can go one better this week.

Early season wins in Ireland were ominous, particularly in the Faugheen Novice Chase at Limerick over Christmas.

Champion Hurdle - State Man

We were anticipating a fascinating duel between State Man and Constitution Hill in a repeat of last year's Champion Hurdle.

With Constitution Hill ruled out, the scene is set for State Man to take the big prize on the opening day.

A trio of Grade 1 wins this season represents the strongest form in the race by far.

Mares' Hurdle - Lossiemouth

There must have been a temptation to go for the Champion Hurdle with Lossiemouth, but the Mares' Hurdle is the chosen destination and Lossiemouth is odds-on to prevail.

Last year's Triumph Hurdle success was mightily impressive and its hard to oppose her in this one.

The return at Cheltenham went as expected as Lossiemouth claimed a Grade 2 victory by nine and a half lengths.

National Hunt Challenge Cup - Embassy Gardens

Willie Mullins has won the final race of the opening day in each of the last two years, courtesy of Stattler and Gaillard Du Mesnil.

He will be hopeful that the favourite for this year's renewal, Embassy Gardens, can enjoy a better day at the Festival than last year, where he was pulled up in the Albert Bartlett.

It's been a faultless start to this season, however, and the pre-race favouritism is entirely justified.
