What Happened in 2022?
We were treated to the Danny Mullins show in 2022, with an outstanding ride on Flooring Porter, to land back to back Stayers Hurdle titles. From the front, Mullins timed the race to perfection, keeping clear throughout but leaving enough in the tank to get up the hill and not be caught.
