Mullins was responsible for five of the 13 runners, with Bellshill an 8-1 shot having bounced back from a disappointing run at Cheltenham to fill the runner-up spot at Aintree.

Mullins junior took his time before allowing his mount to stride to the lead rounding the home turn and he galloped all the way up the straight for a three-and-a-quarter-length success.

Heavily supported favourite Disko filled the runner-up spot ahead of Modus in third.
