Mullins waits on Tingle Creek call
Willie Mullins is happy to play the waiting game with Douvan and Un De Sceaux ahead of the Betfair Tingle Creek at Sandown on Saturday.
Douvan: Could run at Sandown this weekend
The County Carlow handler revealed he has entered both horses for the Grade One, but plans remain fluid.
Mullins told the Irish Times: "Hopefully he (Douvan) will be able to run soon.
"He is entered for both the Tingle Creek and the Hilly Way (Cork, December 11).
"Un De Sceaux is also in at Sandown so we'll see how things work out this week, but I would imagine Douvan would run in one of the two.
"The other route to go would be the John Durkan (at Punchestown on Sunday week) but we have Djakadam for that.
"If they had different owners they might take each other on.
"But for now at least I think Douvan will stay at two miles."
