Six Horses Destined to be Cheltenham Festival Winners For Ruby Walsh and Willie Mullins

Building up to the Cheltenham festival every punter and horse racing enthusiast is looking out for what rides Ruby Walsh is taking – especially for Irish training sensation Willie Mullins.

Ruby has been leading jockey at the festival no less than eight times in his career, winning his first back in 2004 – with his first major victory on Azertyuiop in the Queen Mother Champion chase for Paul Nicholls.

Having now split his partnership with the UK champion trainer back in May 2013, Ruby has shown no signs of slowing down at the festival – helped of course by Mullins’ increasing interest in the world’s most popular national hunt festival.

The two Irish men have hit it off like a house on fire at the festival with Mullins being responsible for Ruby’s eight out of nine winners in the last three years. Those eight wins came in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2014.

His biggest achievement has got to be regaining the Gold Cup on-board Kauto Star, becoming the first horse to win that race after losing the previous year.

Here is a list of the horses he has the best chance on this year.
