Aintree joy for Longford owner Philip Reynolds as Moon Over Germany triumphs in Red Rum Handicap Chase

Moon Over Germany, owned by Longford's Philip Reynolds, won the Red Rum Handicap Chase at Aintree

After the disappointment of failing to land Cheltenham Gold Cup glory with the hotly fancied Presenting Percy, there was a return to the winners enclosure at Aintree on Thursday for Longford owner Philip Reynolds as Moon Over Germany triumphed in the Grade 3 Red Rum Handicap Chase.

Moon Over Germany was led to the 11/2 victory by jockey Rachael Blackmore, ahead of 5/1 shot Lady Button and Champagne at Tara (14/1). 

The Philip Reynolds owned Moon Over Germany is trained by Henry de Bromhead and was bred by Maurice Stack.

Meanwhile, another of Philip Reynolds' horses, Mall Dini has been ruled out of Saturday's Randox Health Grand National. 

Reynolds revealed: "Mall Dini has picked up a leg injury and won't run."
