Mystic theatre can initiate double for Mullins

Progressive six-year-old Mystic Theatre aims to provide Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh with their fourth straight victory in today's Lough Construction Ltd Irish EBF Mares Novice Hurdle at Down Royal.

Mullins has claimed the last three renewals of the Grade Three prize with Morning Run, Listen Dear and Airlie Beach respectively and Mystic Theatre will be a warm order to add her name to the roll of honour, having won six of her eight starts under Rules.

Just as Airlie Beach did last season, Mystic Theatre warmed up for her trip up north by winning a Listed event at Gowran Park in September.

Patrick Mullins, assistant to his father, said: "This has been a very lucky race for us in recent years and Mystic Theatre is a mare we think a lot of.

"She's been very impressive in her point-to-points, in her bumpers and over hurdles so far and hopefully she's improving all the time.

Mystic Theatre concedes weight to each of her five rivals in the two-mile contest, with the biggest threat likely to come from Jessica Harrington's Lesley Dawn on its seasonal return.

Mullins and Walsh can complete a double in the following WKD Hurdle with the highly-regarded Melon.

Runner-up in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham and then to stablemate Cilaos Emery at the Punchestown Festival, the five-year-old possesses plenty scope for improvement and can justify short odds at the main expense of Mick Jazz.
