McCoy strikes for MullinsHeadlines
Tony McCoy

Tony McCoy teamed up with record-breaking trainer Willie Mullins when steering Upsie to victory in the Paddy Power Dial-A-Bet 1800 721 821 Maiden Hurdle at Naas.

The JP McManus-owned mare was 4-7 to make a winning debut over jumps, but success was not without a scare as she almost went through the wing after the third-last when hampered and about to be asked for an effort.

McCoy got the dual French bumper winner back on an even keel and brought the five-year-old to lead just before the final flight, going on to score by three and three-quarter lengths from Aerlite Supreme, with Toubaloo just behind in third.

Mullins said: "She looks a good mare and we'll find a nice novice for her somewhere. She did that well there against geldings and she could take them on again."

The trainer landed a treble including Annie Power in the paddypower.com Novice Hurdle and Outlander in the Paddy Power Mobile App (Pro/Am) INH Flat race.

The bumper looked a hot contest and Outlander, already a winner at Fairyhouse and Leopardstown in December, had a fight on his hands to get the better of Willie McCreery's Kick On Boss, who had scored at Gowran on his only start in the same month.

Patrick Mullins led from the start on the 11-10 favourite, but Kick On Boss soon went on and the pair engaged in a duel down the straight before Outlander proved the stronger, winning by a length and a quarter.

Mullins snr said: "We'll probably look at (the Grade One bumper at) Punchestown if he comes out of this well. I don't think there are any other bumpers over here for three-time winners before that."
