was tasked with repeating his exploits from 12 months earlier and duly became another in a list of dual winners of this race, the most recent being Djakadam earlier this decade sporting the same colours, this performance not up to the same level to when Min adopted similar front-running tactics in the Melling Chase earlier this year (jumping a bit on erratic side), but his battling qualities couldn't be faulted as he fought back from being headed between the last 2, already with the race back in his control when the runner-up made a mistake at the last; this was his fifth Grade 1 success, runner-up on a further 3 occasions, his adaptability regarding trip giving connections plenty of options, though with Chacun Pour Soi - in the same ownership - not to mention Cilaos Emery, an impressive winner at Cork later in the day, also amongst the Mullins ranks, the Ryanair Chase might prove the best option if he's to finally grab a win at the Cheltenham Festival.

produced a career best and might even have won had he been held onto a bit longer, the sort of performance that might have been anticipated when sent off favourite for last season's Arkle; waited with, rapid headway from 5 out, led briefly after 2 out, untidy last, no extra; he'll presumably head to Leopardstown later this month for the Grade 1 over 17f, in which he may get another crack at Min.

was easy to back after 9 months off, especially once the news had broken that his regular pilot Davy Russell wouldn't be able to take the ride due to illness, this test a barely adequate one for a horse that won the Pertemps and RSA at consecutive Cheltenham Festivals, but he ended up shaping very well in a race that clearly wasn't run to suit one with genuine Gold Cup pretentions; mid-field, jumped soundly, took closer order before 4 out, ridden entering straight, outpaced between last 2, stayed on; history tells us he probably won't steer a 'conventional' route towards Cheltenham, but worth bearing in mind after last season's problems that this was just his seventh race over fences, and there's every chance we've yet to see the very best of him.

ran creditably having his first crack at a Grade 1 in open company, and remains open to improvement, especially when stepping up in trip (holds entries at 3m over the Christmas period for both the King George at Kempton and Savills Chase at Leopardstown); chased leaders, driven after 2 out, blundered last, kept on.

had his usual hood refitted back up in trip after 7 months off and ran well, possibly just needing the run to boot, though there's normally at least one mistake in him, an early one on this occasion, something that will continue to hold him back in such exalted company; in rear, clouted third, good progress after 4 out, one paced straight.

possibly still needed this run, though his Arkle rout is in danger of becoming a distant memory if he doesn't find his form before too long; raced well off the pace, some headway after 4 out, pushed along home turn, weakened early in straight.

was presumably having a pipe-opener after 8 months off over a trip some way short of his best, the campaign once again likely to be geared around the Gold Cup (placed in the last 2 renewals) and Grand National; mid-division, lost place before 4 out, tailed off entering straight.

All 9 ran. Fences: 15.

Winning Owner: Mrs S. Ricci

Time: 5m 36.5s Closing Sectional: (3.50f): 57.90s (100.8%)

An up-to-scratch renewal of this long-standing Grade 1 event with quality backed up by quantity, the biggest field since 2007, 4 of the 9 trained by Willie Mullins, including Min, who had to dig deep to retain his crown having briefly been headed by Hardline, Presenting Percy catching the eye back in third in a race in which his stamina wasn't fully tested.
