Golden Silver: Completed treble for his in-form team.

Golden Silver: Completed treble for his in-form team.

Golden Silver (4-6) completed a Fairyhouse treble for Willie Mullins and Paul Townend with a cheeky success when landing the O'Connell Group Hilly Way Chase for the second year in a row.

Townend rode the eight-year-old with supreme confidence as Let Yourself Go made the running from Zaarito.

The latter briefly took it up but Golden Silver was going ominously well two out and made his challenge between the two pacemakers.

Brushing them aside, he swept into the lead and went on to score by four and a half lengths from Zaarito, with Mullins' other runner Kempes third after Let Yourself unseated his rider at the last.

Osana also came to grief when beaten.

Mullins said: "Paul was very good on him. I thought he was a bit far back but Paul knows the horse very well.

"He'll go for the Paddy Power Dial-A-Bet Chase at Leopardstown at Christmas now."
