Geraghty - booted home the winner.

Duc De Regniere brought down the curtain on what trainer Nicky Henderson described as "a great year" when he fought-off I'm So Lucky to land the Masterson Holdings Silver Trophy Limited Handicap Chase.

Making it three successes from just five outings since last November, Duc De Regniere prevailed by a neck in the hands of Barry Geraghty.

Henderson wants to take the eight-year-old to Perth but owners Sir Peter and Lady Gibbings are adamant the gelding will now have a holiday.

He said: "This was a bit of an experiment and he'll now go straight home to Norfolk. He's had a great year but even though there's a nice race at Perth, I think this will be holiday time for him.

"He likes the smaller fields and you would need that round here. It's all about that and his jumping, which has been terrific this year."
