Winning rider Waley-Cohen told ITV Racing in the seconds after the race: "I cant say anything. It is a dream. I can't believe it."

Waley-Cohen continued: “I’ve got to say thank you, as it’s my last ever ride, to my dad (Robert Waley-Cohen, owner), for unwavering belief and love.

“Over 23 years and never a cross word, never been anything but a dream. It’s been a love affair. To my wife, long-suffering, they aren’t all good days, there are bad days in this sport.”

“It’s a fairytale, a fantasy. There’s a lot of love and gratefulness,” Waley-Cohen continued.

“It’s getting on the right horses and getting the luck.

“You couldn’t make it up, could you?”

Robert Waley-Cohen, the father of the winning jockey and owner of Noble Yeats, told ITV: "It's a dream come true. Just fabulous.

“It's a team and thank God it has really worked. He has so much dedication and puts in so much hard work."

Asked if he could believe that result, trainer of Noble Yeats, Emmet Mullins said: "Not really no. And for Sam to go out on a win like that, you could not write it.

"I was probably more confident a month ago than I was today. It is the stuff of dreams. Today was the plan. It is nice when a plan comes together.

"I didn't get to see much of him early doors but going away from the stands here I took a breath because it was a perfect position. That last circuit everything seemed to fall into place. I don't know when this will register."
