Mullins has three entered in Celebration


Willie Mullins has entered three of his stable stars in Saturday's Bet365 Celebration Chase at Sandown.

Mullins is targeting a first-ever British jumps trainers' championship and plans to send a strong team to Sandown for the season-finale.

Queen Mother Champion Chase runner-up Un De Sceaux heads the possibles for the two-mile feature, although Arkle Trophy winner Douvan could bid for another Grade One prize after his impressive win in the Doom Bar Maghull Novices' Chase earlier this month.

Vautour won the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival before falling when odds-on favourite in the JLT Melling Chase. He has been handed an entry in the race, but he could take his chance in the Bet365 Oaksey Chase on the same card.

Mullins' title rival Nicky Henderson has entered former champion Dodging Bullets, Grand Annual winner Solar Impulse and Ulck Du Lin, while Nicky Henderson will rely on Champion Chase winner Sprinter Sacre.

Sire De Grugy could renew rivalry with Sprinter Sacre and Un De Sceaux, while Henry de Bromhead has the option of sending Special Tiara.

Kerry Lee's Top Gamble completes the entries.
