Bookies offer Cheltenham Festival specials for Irish Trainer Willie Mullins ahead of next month's event

We're getting closer and closer to the Cheltenham Festival with racing getting underway in under three week's time and bookies are now offering betting specials.

Willie Mullins is once again expected to have a massive Cheltenham this year with 6 winners across the week in 2023 actually low for the Irish trainer.

This year is expected to be better for Mullins with Paddy Power now giving odds of 1/3 that the trainer has 8 or more winners over the week at the Cheltenham Festival.

2022's Cheltenham saw Mullins have 10 winners in the week and Paddy Power's special market looks at just how many winners he could have, along with other betting odds offered.

Ireland are 1/10 to win this year's Prestbury Cup against Great Britain

The Prestbury Cup is awarded each year with Great Britain taking on Ireland in a battle for the most winners over the course of the four-day meeting.

Britain has not won the Prestbury Cup since way back in 2015 and bookmakers say there's a 12/1 chance of Britain beating Ireland in at the festival.

Ireland though are 1/10 favourites to have the most winners this year which looks like a certainty with those odds suggesting a 90% chance of it happening.
