Willie Mullins: Trains Invitation Only

Invitation Only made his first start over hurdles a winning one at Gowran.

The Willie Mullins-trained five-year-old has a lofty reputation and while it was not all plain-sailing in the Gowran Park, Race That Stops A County Thyestes Jan 26th 2017 Maiden Hurdle, he got the better of Barra by two and three-quarter lengths after a brief tussle from the last.

Mullins said of the Graham Wylie-owned 1-4 favourite: "That was a good jumping performance, and we'll look for a novice now around Christmas.

"He will have no problem going up in trip.

"We think he stays all day, and I was delighted to see him show that turn of foot."

Invitation Only earned quotes of around 10-1 about winning the Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March.
