Vroum Vroum motors to glory for Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh

Vroum Vroum Mag extended her unbeaten run since joining Willie Mullins to eight in the OLBG.com Mares' Hurdle at Ascot.
Sent off the 4-6 favourite, the Ruby Walsh-ridden seven-year-old was trying the near three-mile trip for the first time and handled it with aplomb.
Dropped out in the early stages and given a patient ride throughout, Walsh had taken much closer order rounding the final bend and jumped the second-last in front.
Coming to the last the only danger was in front and while she was not overly fluent, she just had to be momentarily shaken up to readily see off fellow Irish raider Jennies Jewel by three and a half lengths.
