National hero: Connor O'Farrell guides Minella Four Star home

Following hot on the heels of Pipe's two Festival winners with Buena Vista and Junior, Minella Four Star ground his rivals into submission in the stamina-sapping marathon over four and a quarter miles.
In a race full of incident, in which on-course gamble Tricky Trickster fell at the second fence and Synchronised did not return to unsaddle, Minella Four Star looked a relatively fresh horse as he bounded home.
