VIDEO: It was all going so well for Mikael D'Haguenet at Punchestown. A solid round of jumping had left him with just two fences to negotiate and his main rival Mount Benbulben had already fallen. But after a mistake at the penultimate fence he made a hash of the last and threw a winning chance away.

Trainer Willie Mullins said: "The ground must be much heavier than the description. We took the bold option and we went out in front and race fitness caught him out. He's better at home and stronger. I'm pleased with him."
