RICHARD Tanner bred the Presenting gelding Ballycasey and the Willie Mullins-trained 10-year-old was back to his winning ways at Gowran Park on Saturday, landing the feature Grade 2 Red Mills Chase for the Ricci/Mullins/Walsh trio.

This was victory number nine in his career to date, a third of which have been gained at the Co Kilkenny track where he also won the Grade 2 PWC Champion Chase last year. Seven of his nine wins have been over fences and the most important of these was at Leopardstown when he annexed the Grade 1 Dr P J Moriarty Novice Chase.
