Today’s racing tips from Newsboy for Leopardstown and Musselburgh

MINELLA INDO should atone for a fall at Leopardstown over Christmas with a victory in the Grade 1 Paddy Power Irish Gold Cup (3.40).

The Henry de Bromhead eight-year-old came down at the eighth fence when the 5-2 favourite for the Savills Chase in December, but had previously been rock-solid over the larger obstacles and has the potential to be a leading contender for the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March.

Willie Mullins is sure to be a major presence on both days of the Dublin Racing Festival, and APPRECIATE IT should warm up for the Cheltenham Festival by landing the Grade 1 Chanelle Pharma Novice Hurdle (2.10).

Ireland’s champion trainer saddled Faugheen to an emotional triumph in the Grade 1 Flogas Novice Chase (3.10) and MONKFISH, also carrying the colours of Rich Ricci, is hard to oppose.

The opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Paddy Mullins Mares Handicap Hurdle (1.10) can go to MRS MILNER, while UNEXPECTED DEPTH gets the nod for the William Fry Handicap Hurdle (2.40).
