Mullins Set To Dominate Aintree

William Hill have created a market on how many winners Willie Mullins will have at this year’s Aintree Grand National Meeting.

It’s 15-8 for Mullins to score six winners and also 15-8 for him to get seven or more. William Hill price five winners at the meeting at 5-2, while it is 6-1 outsider of the lot that he trains four winners or less.

“Willie Mullins is on for a big haul of winners at the Grand National meeting and if he does so then he will be hard to beat in the Trainers’ Championship,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “It may come down to the wire and rest on whether Mullins or Nicholls can train the Grand National winner.”
