Quantitativeeasing

The decision of the legendary owner and gambler's retained jockey Tony McCoy to waste down to 10st 4lb in order to ride Sunnyhillboy caused him to be sent off an incredibly well-backed 7-2 favourite, only to be eventually pulled up.

Instead, it was McCoy's original mount Quantitativeeasing (6-1) who got the better of a close finish in the hands of Barry Geraghty, forming part of a memorable 61st birthday for trainer Nicky Henderson, whose Grandouet and Oscar Whisky later displayed their top hurdling credentials.

Each leg of the 34-1 treble was ridden by Geraghty, who dusted himself off after a heavy fall from Tanks For That to focus all his energies on bustling Quantitativeeasing along from the back of the pack to deprive Medermit by three-quarters of a length up the hill.

"It has been a great day, but it relies on a lot of people working together and it's a happy coincidence it all happened on December 10," said Henderson.

Of Quantitativeeasing, he went on: "It was a great race and a great ride. I feel sorry for AP, it was his idea I suppose (to ride Sunnyhillboy). I thought he would ride our horse with it having 10st 7lb and the other horse 10st 4lb.

"The horse has been very consistent and you'd have to say he deserves one. He was second at the Festival and in the Paddy Power, so he's got one back at last."

McManus added: "I didn't really know which one AP was going to pick, I got the impression it was going to be a toss-up and you don't always make the right decision. I'm sure he'll be happy for me anyway."

Geraghty said: "We knew he had a chance, but I didn't think we had much of a chance four or five out. I struggled a bit through the race.

"But I knew turning in if I wasn't far off I'd have a chance, and I pinged the last few. It was a rough race if you weren't travelling."
