Super sub Mullins steers Oscar to an easy victory
Report: Naas, Sunday
Woodlands Park 100 Club Leinster National Handicap Chase 3m, 5yo+
GALLANT OSCAR provided substitute rider Danny Mullins with a comfortable ride as the pair ran out easy winners of the Leinster National on Sunday.
Mullins had stepped in for the ride on the Tony Martin-trained eight-year-old after Paul Carberry had injured his ankle in a fall from Mullaghanoe River earlier in the day.
As it turned out, Mullins could not have asked for a simpler ride as Gallant Oscar travelled powerfully before taking the lead at the last fence.
Gallant Oscar was nudged out in the closing yards to take the victory and provide his jockey with a big confidence boost before his ride on Our Conor in the Stan James Champion Hurdle next week.
