Willie Mullins: "It was a good performance and they are two good mares. The winner loves the ground and the trip, and the way she jumped the last few she had plenty in the tank. This is her ground and we are probably looking at taking her to France rather than Cheltenham. It will probably be too quick for her in Cheltenham."
