Cotil stamps class at LeopardstownHeadlines

Blood Cotil made it two wins from as many starts since joining Willie Mullins with victory in Leopardstown's Q8 OILS Juvenile Hurdle.

The Grade Two contest was rendered far less competitive by the withdrawal of likely favourite Our Conor, leaving runaway Fairyhouse scorer Blood Cotil a warm order as the 4-9 market leader.

Paul Townend cut a confident figure throughout the two-mile contest and his mount was still hard on the bridle rounding the home turn. Stocktons Wing briefly threatened to make a race of it between the final two flights, but Blood Cotil jumped the last well and galloped on strongly to seal a three-length win.

Mullins said: "He's a nice sort. We know he stays so the ground wasn't going to be a problem. We were just worried if he'd settle, but he settled beautifully today.

"He pulled very hard in Fairyhouse but sometimes horses do that on their first run and he would have learnt an awful lot from that.

"Paul was happy that he settled with him at all stages and he wasn't afraid to go on with him going to the last because his Flat form suggested that he'd stay so he just met the last right and kicked on. We're looking forward to him."
