1.30 Turner Novices’ Chase

Rachael Blackmore’s Bob Olinger won a dramatic Turner Novices’ Chase as Galopin Des Champs came down on the final fence. Paul Townend looked all set to win on board the Willie Mullins horse and had ridden a phenomenal race to put huge distance in between himself and his challenger, but made an error on the final fence that cost him victory.
