8 winners for Mullins over Easter festival

Willie Mullins helped himself to yet another treble at Fairyhouse yesterday.

The local trainer finished the three-day Easter Festival at the County Meath venue with eight winners to his name.

His closing day success began with Upazo winning the Beginners Chase at odds of 11-4 under Ruby Walsh.

Mullins also claimed victory in the feature Grade 2 Normans Grove Chase with Twinlight who was returned at odds of 3-1 with Ruby on board again.

Meanwhile Willie’s son Patrick was in the saddle for the final leg of the treble as he guided even-money favourite An Dearg Mor to a five-length victory over Delegate.
