Jan Faltejsek: Rode the Pardubicka winner
Orphee Des Lins won the famous Velka Pardubicka at Pardubice in the Czech Republic.
Ridden by Jan Faltejsek, better known for his association with the George Charlton-trained Knockara Beau, he denied Ronino in another thrilling renewal.
There was, however, to be no fairytale ending for veteran jockey Josef Vana, who was looking for a ninth victory in the race.
Vana partnered three-times Pardubicka scorer Tiumen, whom he also trains, but could only finish third.
The Nick Williams-trained Maljimar fared best of the foreign party in fourth for James Reveley, while Willie Mullins' Uncle Junior finished sixth.
