Owner Andrew Gemmell was all smiles in the winner's enclosure after Paisley Park justified 11/8 favouritism to land the G1 Sun Racing Stayers' Hurdle.

Trained by Emma Lavelle and ridden by Aidan Coleman, Paisley Park looked to have it all to do entering the home straight, but he displayed a potent turn of foot to take the lead approaching the final flight.

Despite an untidy leap, the seven-year-old son of Oscar ran on willingly for Coleman's urgings to score by two and three-quarter lengths.
