"It's the stuff of dreams" - Oisin Murphy on 2000 Guineas success

Kerry jockey Oisin Murphy says winning his first British Classic is made no less special by happening behind closed doors. 

He steered 10-to-1 shot Kameko to victory ahead of Aidan O'Brien's Wichita and the pre-race favourite Pinatubo in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.

"I've never won a Classic in Britain and it means the absolute world to me. It's the stuff of dreams," Murphy said on ITV after the race.

"It was a gutsy performance. He hardly blew a candle out afterwards - he must have a tremendous amount of ability. I'm thrilled, in those colours for Andrew Balding.

"I wanted to carry him (Balding) on my shoulders and swing him round and make him dizzy, but first of all I'm not big enough and strong enough to do that, and secondly there would have been a lot of bad press tomorrow morning!

"It obviously hasn't sunk in, there isn't the same atmosphere after the race - in fact there's no atmosphere - but it means just as much to me.

"I'm afraid to dream too big as often races don't work out as you'd planned or the result isn't the way you want it to go.

"This horse had trained very well without us doing anything silly on him at home and I was really pleased. I think really and truly Kameko is a very good horse."
