Willie Mullins made a flying start to the Dublin Racing Festival as Minella Cocooner (11/1) made every yard of the running to win the Nathaniel Lacy & Partners Solicitors '50,000 Cheltenham Bonus For Stable Staff' Novice Hurdle.

Five lengths clear going to the final flight he was driven out to hold off the staying-on Minella Crooner (3/1) by two-and-three-quarter lengths.

Sky Bet Head of Sports PR Michael Shinners said: "A really gutsy performance from Minella Cocooner to grind out the victory. 

"He looks a super jumper and it's great to win a Grade One winner and open the Festival like this."

Minella Racing has a formidable reputation as one of Ireland and the UK’s top National Hunt establishments for rearing and training the future stars of National Hunt racing. Over the years, John and the team at Lavally have nurtured and turned out many champions and below you will find a selection of previous residents who went on to achieve glory for their subsequent owners and trainers. We get a great kick out of seeing our juveniles going on to greatness and hope that every horse that carries the ‘Minella’ prefix reaches their full potential for their connections. To give you a flavour of the invaluable media coverage and heights our former students have enjoyed during their jumping careers, simply click on any horse in the roll of honour below.
