Allaho and Energumene get off to a flyer as Willie Mullins makes it a five-timer using his stable powerhouses despite Chacun Pour Soi's abject performance this weekend

Racing trainer Willie Mullins made it a sparkling five-timer on SundayAllaho and Energumene picked up stunning victories over a brilliant weekendBut Chacun Pour Soi put in an abject display in Saturday’s Tingle Creek Chase

Willie Mullins swiftly swept aside Chacun Pour Soi’s abject performance in Saturday’s Tingle Creek Chase with a sparkling five-timer on Sunday as stable powerhouses Allaho and Energumene began their campaigns in style.

The master of Closutton wasted little time in answering champion trainer rival Gordon Elliott, who recorded a magnificent seven-timer at Navan 24 hours beforehand.

Mullins saddled last year’s Ryanair Chase winner Allaho to win a dramatic Grade One John Durkan Memorial Chase at Punchestown.

Ridden by the trainer’s son Patrick, the well-backed 7-2 chance had a high-class field, including Envoi Allen, in trouble at the midway stage where stablemate Asterion Forlonge emerged as chief danger until blundering at the third last fence.

Although Allaho was far from fluent over the remaining fences, he held on to repel the gutsy Janidil. 

Mullins said: ‘I was delighted how he fought back. When Asterion Forlonge came up alongside him I thought that would take the stuffing out of him. Each challenger that came, he kept pulling it out.’

Energumene was arguably even more impressive a few minutes later when bolting up in the Grade Two Hilly Way Chase at Cork.

Unbeaten in four starts during a sparkling novice campaign over fences, Energumene was sent off the odds-on favourite to make a winning return to action under Sean O’Keeffe and scored by eight lengths in facile fashion, earning quotes as low as 3-1 for the Champion Chase.

The five-fold was completed by Ferny Hollow, Concertista and Dysart Dynamo. 

However, it wasn’t all plain sailing for Mullins as last season’s top bumper recruit Kilcruit was surprisingly turned over at odds of 1-14 on his hurdling bow by the Henry de Bromhead-trained Largy Debut.
