Mullins tips up Lilywhitedancer for the champion Bumper on attheraces this Sunday. Well done to Matt Chapman who as usual gets these trainers to spill the beans and Mullins gave a big up for this Gowran Park winner in mid December. After this race Mullins said that Lilywhitedancer could well be anything. Willie Mullins went on to say that this son of King's Theatre does nothing at home, so the manner of this victory could only have been unexpected.
He travelled keenly in front, but he was clear two furlongs out and that he was still travelling better than anything as they turned in speaks volumes for this result. He looks to be a horse with quite an engine.
The winning trainer said it was an option to put him away for Cheltenham and that is where we might see him next as all roads look like they will lead to Prestbury and the prospect of better ground suiting him even more make him a very interesting prospect.
Lilywhitedancer form was boosted at Punchestown in Mid January with Hangover beating another Mullins recruit to the game and this points to what is now his main hope Lilywhitedancer who is generally a 12/1 chance but this is likely to go following Mullins Comments this morning.
