It was joy for jockey Ruby Walsh and trainer Willie Mullins at Leopardstown as Min won the Racing Post Novice Chase.

The 5-year-old took victory in the race, finishing ahead of Irish horse Ordinary World.

The Willie Mullins-trained Min had been the 4-5 favourite and lived up to expectation as Ruby Walsh rode the eventual winner to victory. 

Mullins and Walsh also combined as Bapaume won the Knight Frank Juvenile Hurdle.

And it wasn't the only time the Mullins-Walsh partnership enjoyed a win.

Elsewhere at the St Stephen's Day Leopardstown meeting, the Mullins-trained Bunk Off Early won the first race of the day with Walsh on board in the Horse and Jockey Hotel Maiden Hurdle.
