Big Zeb - Punchestown fall.

Big Zeb - Punchestown fall.

The feature Amazing Thailand Chase was rendered less competitive by the fall of hot favourite Big Zeb but it was veteran Mansony who took top honours for Arthur Moore and Davy Russell.

The 7-2 chance moved up to challenge Watson Lake a long way from home and soon went in to a clear lead.

Big Zeb loomed up as a major danger turning for home but parted company with his jockey at the second-last, leaving Mansony to come home eight lengths clear of Watson Lake.

Moore said: "He has been a great servant and came out of the race at Fairyhouse very well and is as good as ever.

"Davy said that Big Zeb still had to pass him to win.

"He will go to Naas in three weeks' time and then he may go for a two-and-a-half-mile Graded race at Navan.

"All things being well, he will come back here for the (Punchestown) Festival."

Sky Bet pushed Big Zeb out to 10-1 from 8s for the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
