The camaraderie is the weigh room is legendary but rarely do you see this kind of act of kindness and bravery.

Danny Mullins helped fellow rider Jody McGarvey stay aboard Old Supporter in the 4.45 at Roscommon yesterday when he looked certain to part company with his mount.

He did so knowing that another fence was fast approaching but was quick enough to ensure that both partnerships stayed intact.

There was no fairytale ending as both horses were pulled up but they were all in one piece.
