TWO RACES DOWN, two winners for Willie Mullins.

What a sensational start it has been to the 2019 Cheltenham Festival for Ireland’s champion trainer as 40 minutes after Klassical Dream won the Supreme, Duc Des Genievres landed the Racing Post Arkle by an awesome 13 lengths.

This time it was Paul Townend in the saddle and he enjoyed an armchair ride on the 5-1 shot who stormed up the Cheltenham hill to lead home a 1-2-3 for Ireland as the Joseph O’Brien-trained Us And Them took second and Terence O’Brien’s Articulum was third.
