The Willie Mullins trained, Ruby Walsh ridden, Briar Hill was a winning bet for members of VG Tips at a great SP price of 25-1.
It was the last race of that day in 2013, the bumper, and Briar Hill was one of two Mullins trained horses that I alerted members to because the price was too big to ignore.
I was attracted to Briar Hill because of what Mullins said about the horse during a stable visit. The canny Irish trainer said that Briar Hill pleased him because “he does his best work on the racecourse and not at home. I like horses that do their best work on the course.”
As do I. I was right to offer the 25/1 tip to members. Briar Hill went on to win the bumper by 7 lengths.
