The Gigginstown House Stud-owned four to one shot struck for home and was always going to win in the final quarter mile, eventually crossing the line five lengths to the good from the well-backed joint favourite, Saffron Wells.
Mullins revealed: "He hadn't shown those type of gears at home and I thought he was an out and out galloper. He showed a turn of foot today.
"He was a bit hairy on the first bend and Patrick had to pull him back a bit.
"He showed a nice bit today and we'll have to speak to the owners as to whether he'll go for a winners bumper or go hurdling." (GC & EM)
Five pound claimer Mark Enright had a day that he won't forget in a hurry as he completed a 142/1 double as Murchu came out best in an incredible conclusion to the Caffrey's Bar & Restaurant Handicap Chase at Fairyhouse.
