Min wins Moscow Flyer

The highly-fancied Min eased to victory in the Sky Bet Moscow Flyer Novice Hurdle at Punchestown on Saturday.

The Willie Mullins-trained mount was never in danger as he controlled the race from start to finish under Ruby Walsh.

The field came back to him in the latter stages before he kicked on to claim victory from Attribution by nine-and-a-half-lengths.

Already installed as a strong favourite for the Supreme Novices Hurdle in March, Min re-affirmed his credentials for the Cheltenham opener where he will be looking to follow in the footsteps of stablemates Vautour and Douvan as winners of the Moscow Flyer who then went on to win at Prestbury Park.

"I didn't have much of a say in that, he took a fair grip and was pinging his hurdles so I couldn't pull him back," Walsh said afterwards.

"I slowed it up running to the second-last, hoping to get a breath into him but they were on my tail pretty quickly so I had to go again. But he quickened up really impressively and won comfortably.

"He's learning as he goes, but you never want to get left behind at Cheltenham anyway as you'll never get back into the race.

"I think he's like Vautour and Douvan, raw and immature, but he's doing his talking on the track."
