Royal Caviar impressive for Vinnie Roe

Winning pointer Royal Caviar (5g Vinnie Roe-Blackwater Babe, by Arctic Lord) made a sparkling debut under Rules when landing a Fairyhouse bumper on Wednesday.

The Kevin Fox-bred son of Vinnie Roe joined Willie Mullins after selling for £90,000 following his success between the flags in April and he looks a bright prospect after this six and a half lengths bumper victory.

“He’s a fine big chasing type, and I was pleased that he could go on that ground because it’s turned quite slow. On his pedigree I thought he might want better ground but he’s such a strong horse he handled that,” Mullins told

“I’d imagine he’ll go for a winners’ bumper. Patrick (Mullins) said he pulled quite hard and was afraid that he didn’t settle well enough but he showed plenty of toe.”
