Paul Carberry: Awarded the race after an inquiry

A dramatic Toals Bookmakers Ulster Grand National E.B.F. Handicap Chase at Downpatrick saw Hidden Horizons awarded the race after Unoccupied was demoted in the stewards' room.

The Eoghan O'Grady-trained Unoccupied went on at the head of affairs with Hidden Horizon after the third-last as leader Hidden Crack gave way, with the rest well behind.

Unoccupied was clear going to the final fence as Philip Enright looked to make use of his stamina, but Hidden Horizon rallied in game style on the run-in and the pair came together as Paul Carberry sought a gap on the rail on Stuart Crawford's runner.

The claxon immediately sounded and lengthy deliberations ensued before the placings were reversed.
