Moor Lane is beaten.

AN upset was caused by Lordberniebouffant in lowering the colours of Martell Grand National anti-post favourite Moor Lane in the Sodexho Prestige Handicap Chase at Newbury today.

Moor Lane did not jump with any great fluency and his jockey Norman Williamson was hard at work some way from home.

However, the 10-year-old was persuaded to put his best foot forward in the closing stages and only went down by a couple of lengths.

Moor Lane's trainer Ian Balding admitted he was disappointed, saying: "He ran a funny race and seemed a bit flat as there was no real sparkle there."
