Son of Saints des Saints impresses in bumper

QUEL ESPRIT jumped to the top of the Champion Bumper market after an effortless victory in the Paddy Power Christmas Bumper INH Flat race at Leopardstown on Saturday.

Sent off the 4-5 favourite and ridden by Patrick Mullins, the son of the French sire Saints Des Saints came home 13 lengths and five lengths clear of Chargen and Schindlers Society in the 2m4f contest.

Winning trainer Willie Mullins said: "He has a big future and you don't get much better than winning a Leopardstown bumper like that.

"He'll certainly be on the bus for Cheltenham."
