NEIL MULHOLLAND has his team in good form after a quiet spell when his Conkwell Grange team were effected by a bug but with 45 winners and £570,000 in prize money he can be highly satisfied that his stables four miles from Bath are back in full swing.
Mulholland is waiting with baited breath to see if The Young Master makes the cut for Saturday’s Grand National as his former Bet365 Handicap Chaser winner currently stands at number 44 in a race with a 40-runner safety limit.
The 10-year-old put in a solid effort in the Kim Muir at Cheltenham when third to Any Second Now and should he fail to make Aintree then the Scottish National at Ayr could come on his radar.
There have been healthy contributions from the likes of Walt, Impulsive Star and Carole’s Destrier and they could well play their parts in boosting the prize money tally still further in the closing weeks of the Jumps season.
Mulholland has plenty to go at in the coming weeks and he kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about those he hopes can make their presence felt.
