Don Poli

The five-year-old, a third winner on the day for owners Gigginstown House Stud, drew away from his main challenger Thomas Crapper up the hill after a prolonged battle.

Fogarty drove Don Poli (12-1) home by four and a half lengths, with Caid Du Berlais a length and a quarter back in third. Urbain De Sivola ran an incredible race to finish fourth after being left many lengths at the start.

Gigginstown supremo Michael O'Leary said: "I think I've died and gone to heaven, it's amazing.

"He won three miles last time out and I had no plans to come here, but Willie felt it took a stayer to win the race and that's a fantastic performance by Willie, he's a genius trainer. Mikey gave him a brilliant ride and I couldn't be happier."
