Mullins Eased For UK NH Trainers’ Title
NH Trainers' Championship
Following the shock news that Michael O’Leary’s Gigginstown House Stud has removed all their horses from champion trainer Willie Mullins, we have eased Willie Mullins out to 5/2 from 6/4 to win the 2016/17 UK NH Trainers’ Championship.
As a result, current champion trainer Paul Nicholls, is now 1/3 from 8/11 to retain the crown.
Rookie trainer Dan Skelton has also seen his price harden into 20/1 from 33/1, whilst Colin Tizzard who recently teamed up with Alan & Anne Potts, is 25/1 from 40/1 to claim the crown.
Mullins will still have strong ammunition in the form of Rich Ricci’s cavalry of horses that include Faugheen, Vautour and Djakadam, but the Gigginstown split has certainly dented his chances of finally winning the UK Trainers Championship.
