The performance of the weekend came from arguably the best race of the jumps season to date with Aidan Coleman and Paisley Park coming from the clouds to land the Grade One Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot.
The race was hyped up as a heavyweight bout between Thyme Hill and Paisley Park and it did not disappoint with the pair of them fighting it out up to the line and only being separated by a neck.
It was the eight year olds third win in Grade One company and was a great thing for racing to see the horse that most the racing world are fond of getting back to his best.
That win really hots up the Stayers' hurdle division with nothing to split both Paisley Park and Thyme Hill with Sire De Berlais set to lay down his challenge on the group when racing in Ireland over Christmas.
Paisley Park will now head to Cheltenham for the Cleeve Hurdle before looking to win the Stayers' Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival for the second time in his career and after his performance at the weekend he is now as short as 7/2 from 9/2.
