Mullins - Aintree fallers fine

Willie Mullins has given all his horses that ran at Aintree a clean bill of health - including Arctic Fire.

The Champion Hurdle runner-up took a crashing last-flight fall when looking like the winner of the Aintree Hurdle last weekend.

However, along with Grand National casualty Ballycasey and Topham faller Turban, Mullins is aiming them at Punchestown.

"All the horses are fine after Aintree," said the trainer.

"Arctic Fire is obviously a bit sore after his fall and he's had an easy week.

"The other fallers, Ballycasey and Turban, are also ready to go to Punchestown.

"All my horses are well and hopefully we can get them all there in good form."
