Nicky Henderson's British raider Beat That fended off the challenge of Don Poli in a pulsating climax to the Irish Daily Mirror Novice Hurdle at Punchestown.

Beat That was all the rage for the three-mile Grade One as the 11-8 favourite following an impressive victory on his debut over the distance at Aintree.

Barry Geraghty cut a confident figure in the saddle rounding the home turn, with Ruby Walsh far more animated aboard the Willie Mullins-trained Don Poli.

However, the latter dug deep for pressure and there was almost nothing to chose between the pair jumping the final flight.

The duo settled down for a thrilling tussle and it was Beat That who won the argument by three-quarters of a length.

Don Poli, winner of the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Hurdle at Cheltenham, gave everything in second, with Lots Of Memories third.

The disappointment of the race was Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle winner Very Wood, who faded tamely in the straight after racing up with the pace.
