It was another disappointing day at Leopardstown for Minella Indo.
The Henry De Bromhead trained eight-year-old with Rachael Blackmore on board could only manage fourth in the Paddy Power Irish Gold Cup on Day Two of the Dublin Racing Festival, after going off the 13/8 odds on favourite.
The Willie Mullins trained Kemboy was guided to victory by his nephew Danny in the feature race of the day that was worth €200,000.
The nine-year-old went off at a starting price of 11/4.
Rachael Blackmore and Minella Indo hoped to put a fall at the same course in the Savills Chase over Christmas behind them but it wasn't to be and they came home behind Gordon Elliott's pair The Storyteller and Delta Work.
🤩 Gold cup glory for KEMBOY! 🤩
He goes one better than last year in the @PaddyPower Irish Gold Cup, making all under @dan2231 to take home the trophy 🏆
Well done to team @WillieMullinsNH 🔥🔥🔥@pphorseracing #DublinRacingFestival #DRF21 pic.twitter.com/i8ga6vNT8j
