Ruby Walsh believes Willie Mullins could have "assembled the best team of horses that he has ever had".

The peerless County Carlow handler carried all before him last season but Walsh is adamant there might be even more to come.

"I have worked with him for 20 years," the jockey told www.racing.com.

"He's an incredible trainer and he brought Simenon down for the Melbourne Cup a few years ago and finished fourth, he is more renowned as a jumps trainer but he can mix it with the Flat as well.

"At the moment, he has probably assembled the best team of horses that he has ever had, so it is a great place to be working at and he is a great man to work for."
