Market movers hint Mullins could sprinkle more magic on day two of Punchestown

Willie Mullins: trainer had five winners at Punchestown on Tuesday
1 of 1

Willie Mullins, who dominated day one of Punchestown with five winners on Tuesday, has another strong hand to play on Wednesday with 19 runners and market moves hint at another fruitful day for the top trainer.

Blue Sari has been pulled up and a faller on his last two starts, but Paddy Power make him 15-8 (from 2) for the conditions hurdle at 4.50, while stablemate Galopin Des Champs, successful in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, is 2-1 (from 9-4) to follow up in the  Irish Mirror Novice Hurdle (5.20).

Paddy Power's Punchestown movers on day two

3.40 Mt Leinster Gold 6-1 (from 13-2)
4.15 Calthor 13-2 (from 7)
4.50 Blue Sari 15-8 (from 2)
5.20 Galopin Des Champs 2-1 (from 9-4)
6.30 Ramillies 20-1 (from 22)
7.00 Dunvegan 12-1 (from 14)
7.35 Mi Lighthouse 33-1 (from 50)

Mullins appears to have the key to the  ITM - Supporting Irish Store Sales Champion INH Flat Race (6.30) with market leaders Sir Gerhard and Kilcruit, but that has not stopped Paddy Power making Ramillies a 20-1 chance (from 22).

The going for day two of the meeting is described as yielding after 9mm of rain since 8am on Tuesday.

Punchestown cards and betting

Track officials tweaked the going to yielding (from yielding, good to yielding in places) for Wednesday's eight-race card, which is headlined by the Ladbrokes Punchestown Gold Cup (5.55).

Two-time Cheltenham Gold Cup hero Al Boum Photo is in action in that, clashing with British raider Clan Des Obeaux and Kemboy, who won the last running of the Grade 1 two years ago.
