Yesterday's highlights.

VVBACKERs of Mission Complete in the staying chase at Warwick owe a huge debt to Tony McCoy, who somehow managed to force his mount's head in front where it mattered.

From a long way out it looked as though McCoy was fighting a losing battle with the hat-trick-seeking Noel Fehily on Reblis (traded at 1.1 on Betfair) but a typical never-say-die attitude from the champion jockey on a willing, if slow, partner sealed the spoils on the 7-4 favourite who hit a high of 15.

The big duel between Flemenstar and Sir Des Champs at Punchestown was well called by in-running punters on Betfair.

Though Sir Des Champs was very strong in the pre-race market, as early as halfway cosy winner Flemenstar was trading at 1.4 despite the race having yet to develop.
