Arvika Ligeonniere
The eight-year-old had failed to complete the course on his last two starts after winning two Grade Ones earlier in the campaign.

The 7-2 favourite was always prominent as Special Tiara took them along before taking the lead before the third-last and going on to score by nine and a half lengths from Oscars Well. Special Tiara was third.

Mullins said: "Soft ground and a right-handed track are two important ingredients for him, and two miles is probably his trip.

"Ruby got him to settle today. He's over 17 hands and must be the biggest horse in our yard. He's just so strong, he's improving and we will probably stay at home with him next season."
