Harpsy Cord strikes bum note at the last

Harpsy Cord's backers suffered final-fence heartache at Limerick as he fell at the last with the Tim Duggan Memorial Handicap Chase at his mercy.
In the hands of Keith Donoghue, Harpsy Cord had jumped brilliantly, but after pecking on landing at the second-last, he got in too tight to the final fence to blow his five-length lead and gift victory to course specialist Jack Absolute (16/1). Both horse and jockey were fine after the fall.
