Mullins heaps praise on Invitation Only

Jockey David Mullins says he was "very impressed" with Invitation Only after his win at Punchestown on Saturday.

The Willie Mullins-trained seven-year-old claimed a two-and-a-half-length victory ahead of stablemate Koshari.

Invitation Only is likely to contest either the RSA Chase or the JLT Novices Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, and jockey David Mullins, the trainer's nephew, believes he could be one to watch after his display at Punchestown.

"He's got buckets of scope and he's a real galloping jumper," said David Mullins, as reported by Sporting Life. "I was very impressed with him. He quickened up off the bend and did everything right and he's one to look forward to.

"I couldn't believe at the third-last where he came from. He was as far out at the other side and he's got it all really."
