An incredible race

Willie Mullins broke his BoyleSports Irish Grand National duck in style by saddling the first three home in Easter Monday's showdown at Fairyhouse.

Jockey Ruby Walsh made it a hat-trick of Irish Grand National victories as Burrows Saint cruised into contention and held off last year’s second Isleofhopendreams by 1¾ lengths with Acapella Bourgeois making it a 1-2-3 for the Carlow based trainer.

In doing so, Mullins won the €500,000 race for the first time in his career.
