Do Paddy Power have a mole in Willie Mullins yard? Is it called Ruby? Just having my usual Monday rummage through the Cheltenham Ante Post markets when it struck me PP have made their minds up where Willie Mullins senior horses will be running!
Just had this exchange on Twitter ten minutes ago!

@AntepostRacing How much of a handle do PP have on the Mullins yard? If they do. F=CH. AP=M, VVM=SH. That’s a 140/1+ treble with Coral or WH

@mooresthepity They are very very close to the Yard, Walsh got his partnership with them too.
So that’s Faugheen for Champion Hurdle @5/2, Annie Power for Mares Hurdle @ 7/2 and Vroum Vroum Mag for Stayers Hurdle @ 8/1. Pays £1410 for a tenner. Win only. No point each way as main reason they will be beaten is if they don’t run!
Whilst I’m here I might as well cover Saturday, a faller, two fifths and a third.
Aterilarigo: Johnson showed him the fence and he fell at the second!
Charlemar: Hurdled really well but not up to the grade, yet! Keep onside and I will cover this race in my Mad March Musings on the Cheltenham novice hurdlers picture due out later today.
Cloudy Too: Great run, every chance at the Pond fence three out. Wish he had hung on for fourth @ 14/1 e/w.
Chocala: Odd ride, never really put in race, blocked a couple of times. Sent off 9/4 favourite!
On Friday’s especially must back Saturdays selections 4-6pm on Friday because of Pricewise (and a couple of other senior tipsters) effect. He put up Chocala, we got 6/1 and returned 9/4 favourite!! Cloudy Too was 14/1, Atirelargo 9/2 in the a.m. went off 8/1 and 5/1, ONLY take guaranteed odds.
