Al Boum Photo won the prestigious Gold Cup for the second consecutive year on the last day of the Cheltenham Festival 2020 on Friday. Favorite 10-3 beat Santini, winning by the neck and becoming the first horse to defend the title since Best Mate in 2004.
Coach Willie Mullins, who had four wins in five races on Friday, said later: "It's a fantastic day and absolutely unbelievable. That man on the screen, Paul Townend, said he was under pressure.
"Paul does his own thing. He probably does better under a little pressure. [It was] very, very good on his part.
"[I'm] delighted with Paul. It's not easy to replace someone like Ruby Walsh, but Paul is gone and stamped his authority this season in Ireland, riding into our backyard."
His other victories included Burning Victory and Tamboril, both also ridden by Paul Townend, while Barry Geraghty's Saint Roi also came home first.
