Leading Trainers at the festival

For the second year in a row, only one winner separates Willie Mullins and NickyHenderson at the head of the standings for most successful all-time trainer at The Festival™ presented by Magners.
The duo each saddled four winners at the four-day extravaganza 12 months ago, with Mullins claiming The Irish Independent Leading Trainer Award thanks to his four second places. Mullins continues to hold a
narrow advantage in the all-time standings, having overtaken his great rival when notching seven victories in 2018.


Paul Nicholls is third on the all-time list with 45 wins, including two at The Festival in 2019, while Gordon Elliott has already notched 25 successes at the meeting, despite only gaining his first win with Chicago Grey
in the 2011 National Hunt Chase.
