Concorde grounded by Shaneshill

Shaneshill reversed Cheltenham Festival form with Silver Concorde to claim the Champion INH Flat Race at Punchestown.

The latter had swept a length and a half clear of Shaneshill in the Champion Bumper in March, but it was an entirely difference scenario back on home turf.

Trained by Willie Mullins and owned by Graham Wylie, who had both lifted the Punchestown Gold Cup with Boston Bob 35 minutes earlier, the 5-1 scorer was always prominent under Jamie Codd and galloped into the lead at the top of the home straight. Even though Silver Concorde continued to apply pressure, the even-money favourite was comprehensively beaten by two lengths.

Value At Risk came with a powerful late run to finish a close third.

Mullins said: "Jamie said he was going well and decided to take the bull by the horns. He looks like one for the staying novice hurdles next season."

Codd said: "I started off with Willie Mullins and just to get this ride and be able to win is absolutely fantastic.

"He's very good. He's progressed lovely and had a great run at Cheltenham. He's trained on to Punchestown and did it well. Being a point-to-pointer, I knew he'd stay."
