Faugheen and Yorkhill among market leaders for Dublin Festival

Mullins’ runners head the betting

Irish champion trainer Willie Mullins dominates the early betting for three of this weekend’s inaugural Dublin Racing Festival highlights.

Yorkhill and Min are at the top of the market for the Coral Dublin Chase.

The former can be backed at 11/10, with the latter available at 6/4.

Stablemates Faugheen and Melon are even-money and 11/1 respectively for the Irish Champion Hurdle.

Meanwhile, Footpad (8/15) heads Petit Mouchoir (3/1) for the Irish Arkle, which was won by Douvan in 2016 and Some Plan in 2017.

Lagostovegas and Off You Go share favouritism for the Coral.ie Hurdle at 8/1 apiece.

“Gordon Elliott may be leading the way in this year’s Irish trainers’ championship, but the odds suggest Willie Mullins could go a long way in closing the gap this weekend, with several of his stable stars heading the betting for their respective targets,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
