Analysis

Patrick Mullins: "I was a lot more nervous standing on the ground! I have to give a lot of thanks to a good friend of mine, Paul Byrne, who recommended the horse and I bought him for small money. He got different injuries and we weren't able to sell him, but this is absolutely fantastic and it's all worked out for the best."

Willie Mullins: "For a horse with very little experience to do that was very impressive and it's not too often Ruby gets down to 10st 3lb to ride one. That's the first time I've won this race. It's great to get that one as a lot of things have not been going well this week."
