I'm delighted it's all worked out. It's unreal to ride a winner here and thank you to everyone that made this opportunity happen. Mark gave him a great ride. There was plenty of carnage in behind through the race and we managed to avoid some of the loose horses down the hill. He's very tough and I'm delighted for Ronnie who has supported me well and delighted to have a winner here. Joseph Patrick O'Brien, trainer
