Felix Yonger Aims To Strike For Mullins And Walsh In JLT Novices' Chase

Thursday 13th March 2014

Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh have landed the opening race on days one and two of the Cheltenham Festival and the red-hot Irish duo will look to bag the curtain-raiser on day three on Thursday afternoon as they team up with the well-backed Felix Yonger in the JLT Novices' Chase, which takes place at 1:30pm and sets up a terrific day's racing at Prestbury Park.

Vautour and Faugheen were sublime when landing the opening prizes in the first two days and Felix Yonger has attracted significant support in recent weeks and could be sent off favourite for the 2m 4f Grade One, but the eight-year-old will have his work cut out with a plethora of top class rivals taking their chance in this wide open renewal.

Oscar Whisky has been a prominent figure in the betting all season and his owner Dai Walters will bid for his second festival success after Whisper landed the Coral Cup on Wednesday and he can't be discounted, whilst the likes of Wonderful Charm, Taquin Du Seuil and Vukovar are just another triumvirate of intriguing contenders doing battle.
