Willie Mullins Day 4 Cheltenham accumulator: 17/1 Cheltenham four-fold

After reaching 100 Cheltenham Festival winners on Wednesday, Willie Mullins drew a blank on Thursday, but should be back with a bang on Friday.

Gold Cup Day presents Mullins with some more good opportunities to add to his total, with favourites in four races, including Galopin Des Champs in the Cheltenham showpiece.

We take a look at some of Willie Mullins’ leading runners on day four of the Cheltenham Festival.

The below four-fold accumulator at Cheltenham pays at odds of 77/1 at current prices.

(Any odds displayed are subject to fluctuation).

Willie Mullins Day 4 Cheltenham acca

1:30 - JCB Triumph Hurdle - Majborough - 4/1
2:50 - Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle - Readin Tommy Wrong -
2/1
3:30 - Gold Cup - Galopin Des Champs - 10/11
5:30 - Mares' Chase - Dinoblue - 7/4

JCB Triumph Hurdle - Majborough

Although Nicky Henderson is the leading trainer in the Triumph Hurdle, it's been another of Mullins' races in recent years, taking three of the last four renewals, with Burning Victory, Vauban and Lossiemouth, and Majborough may be about to follow in their footsteps.

His first race over hurdles was a win at Auteuil before moving to Closutton, where his first assignment was a testing Grade 1 at Leopardstown, coming third behind Kargese, but improvement is expected at Prestbury Park.

Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle - Readin Tommy Wrong

While the Stayers' Hurdle hasn't been the most fruitful race at the Cheltenham Festival for Mullins, he has seen more success in recent years in the Albert Bartlett, with Penhill, Monkfish and The Nice Guy winning in the last seven Festivals, and he's set to saddle the favourite in Readin Tommy Wrong.

The six-year-old won both his bumpers before moving on to hurdles, where he won by a shoulder at Cork before landing at 16/1 over 2m4f at Naas in January.

Gold Cup - Galopin Des Champs

Immediately priced up as the favourite for the 2024 Gold Cup after his superb 2023 victory, Galopin Des Champs hasn't shown much this season to cause a drift in price, and there's every chance he becomes the first odds-on Gold Cup winner since Best Mate back in 2004.

If there are any chinks in the armour, it's the two defeats to Gold Cup second-favourite Fastorslow in the Punchestown Gold Cup and the John Durkan, but Mullins' charge has since avenged them with a win in the Irish Gold Cup, which came after a 23-length win in the Savills Chase over Christmas.

Mares' Chase - Dinoblue

Mullins took the first two editions of the Mares' Chase with Colreevy and Elimay, but was denied a hat-trick when favourite Allegorie De Vassy finished two-and-a-half lengths behind Impervious.

Allegorie De Vassy lines up once more this year, but it's Dinoblue leading the charge.

Since his defeat - as 7/2F in the Grand Annual at last year's Festival - Dinoblue won four straight races, only being beaten in the Grade 1 Dublin Chase by 2023 Champion Chase favourite El Fabiolo.
