Mullins 5/2 To Break Punchestown Record

William Hill make Willie Mullins 5-2 to break his own record of Punchestown winners, by landing 17 or more victories at this week’s Festival.

Mullins has most of his superstars ready to rumble at Punchestown and he could go even better than last year’s tally of 16 winners.

“Willie Mullins has a vast array of talent for Punchestown and the question is whether he can beat his own record. There’s a reasonable chance he might do so,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
