NEIL MULHOLLAND has had a satisfactory season so far with the 50 winner mark reached on home soil and over £490,000 in prize money and starts Cheltenham Festival week with his team in grand form.
The Conkwell Grange trainer is hoping that The Young Master and Fingerontheswitch will represent him in the Kim Muir on Thursday and has Soupy Soups in the Ultima Handicap on the first day and could also have Kansas City Chief (Pertemps Final) and Bootlegger (County Hurdle or Martin Pipe) if they make the cut.
In all, Mulholland has had 65 winners as three have come on the Flat and further 12 in Jersey which makes his accomplishments all the more meritable.
Neil said; “We rarely buy at the Sales but we chip away the best we can and we have had a decent season with the prospects of more to come.”
There are several interesting prospects in the stable, with the likes of Indian Brave, La Cavsa Nostra, Scardura and Solwara One possibly the most notable, and Neil kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about those he hopes can swell his win numbers further.
