Not surprisingly punters really want to be with the powerful Willie Mullins stable at Cork's McCarthy Insurance Day this afternoon, and both Blackstairmountain and Terminal are strong fancies at odds on.

The absence of Joxer in the opening two-mile conditions hurdle at 12.10pm has contributed to Blackstairmountain being as low as 8/15 with Ladbrokes.

Paul Townend's mount was trading at 11/10 before Joxer and Bombadero both came out.

Townend is also aboard Terminal in the 2m4f beginners chase, and the Fairyhouse runner-up has shortened to 1/2 with William Hill and 8/15 with Ladbrokes having been 8/11 with the pair earlier this morning.
