After a plethora of winners Irish leading trainer Mullins said: “We hope you enjoyed the Dublin Racing Festival as much as we did. We are delighted how well the horses ran.”

Mullins team made their way back from Leopardstown to Closutton stables, Muine Bheag, County Carlow, Ireland, with the Cheltenham Festival looming in March.

“Thanks goes to our owners for sending us these fantastic horses and to the big team effort by everyone at Closutton for keeping the show on the road,” added Mullins, 64, the most successful trainer at the Cheltenham Festival, with 72 winners.
