Jockey Paul Townend said: “Amazing. I thought I’d never have the feeling like I had last year but I think this was even better. Unreal.”

Trainer Mullins added: “Fantastic. An absolutely unbelievable day. Some said he was under pressure but Paul does his own thing. He probably rides better under a bit of pressure. Delighted for Paul. It is very hard to take over from someone like Ruby Walsh but Paul has stamped his authority. He is a rider riding with huge confidence.”

 

Owner Marie Donnelly said: “It is completely unbelievable. I cannot believe it. Incredible. My husband said to Paul make history and he has. It is totally wonderful. A brilliant ride from Paul and he is obviously in tune with Al Boum Photo.”
