Uncle Junior tackles Double Dizzy at the last as Garde Champetre closes
Uncle Junior (9-2) beat Garde Champetre in a thrilling renewal of the Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase at Cheltenham on Friday.
The latter was going for his sixth win over the unique course and was sent off the 10-11 favourite for trainer Enda Bolger and jockey Nina Carberry.
However, a slip coming into the home straight didn't help his cause and he couldn't quite get to Uncle Junior who found most under Patrick Mullins up the hill.
Uncle Junior finished two-and-a-quarter lengths clear at the line with Garde Champetre nine lengths ahead of 40-1 chance Double Dizzy who finished third.
Carberry said of the slip: "It didn't help. It knocked his confidence and he never recovered.
"He just didn't jump as well as normal. I got further back than ideally I'd have liked and we couldn't quite get there. I'm sure the old spark is still there."
Trainer Enda Bolger added: "I thought at one point he might not even get in the first four.
"The other horse took it to him, but he ran well.
"He'll probably come back here in December."
