Mullins import shows va va Vroum

Vroum Vroum Mag looks another hugely promising recruit to the Willie Mullins yard after scoring with ease on her Irish debut in the Kerlogue Mares Beginners Chase.

A bumper and hurdle winner in her native France, she has since been snapped up by owner Rich Ricci and was always travelling comfortably under Ruby Walsh.

After opening up a huge lead before the last, the 8/11 favourite was over the final obstacle carefully and eased down to win by nine lengths from Emily Gray.

The win completed a treble on the card for Mullins and Walsh.

Walsh said: "I'd say she would love real soft ground. The chase track is a bit drier than the hurdles course.

"It was a good performance, she jumped super and travelled super.

"You'd love the way she jumped on the far side. When I pulled her out she pinged the one at the top of hill and got me there and then she pinged the ditch and it was nearly race over then in two jumps."
