A record crowd of 40,984 people arrived in Punchtown this afternoon to watch the honeymoon and the birth of the bright horse.

The Henry de Bromhead-trained mare was the winner of three lengths against the Echoes in the Rain (18/1) and Daraso (33/1) was 4 longer behind in third place.

Honeysuckle tracked third-place race leaders for most of the race and climbed to challenge two. Rachel Blackmore-Ryden ran the horse firmly in the run-in and kept three lengths between herself and the rest of the field as she extended her unbeaten record to 16 wins.

Coincidentally, runner-up Echoes in Rain kept Daraso at bay for four more lengths at the same speed.

Twelve-time Grade 1 winner Honeysuckle now claims two champion hurdles, both at Cheltenham and Punchtown, as well as at the Cheltenham Festival.

Winning coach Henry de Bromhead said post-race that the top-class horse could have four runs next season before retiring.
