Willie Mullins brought up his Tramore double with Savina (7/4 favourite) who came home strongly by two and a quarter lengths under Patrick Mullins in the mares' bumper.

She had plenty on her plate as she came under pressure to try and hunt down the clear leader Positive Outlook in the final quarter of a mile.

The latter weakened approaching the final furlong, though and was soon grabbed by Savina.

She was driven out to account for Lets Go Again who came through for second at 14/1. Positive Outlook was a further three parts of a length away in third at 4/1.

Willie Mullins said: "She raced fairly green. There was a real good pace and that played to her advantage as she is from a lovely staying pedigree.

"Her pedigree and her stamina came to the fore and she galloped on to the end. I'd be looking forward to going over hurdles with her over a trip I think and she'll stay going now for the summer."
