Energumene won a dramatic Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham after favourite Shishkin was pulled up.

The 5-2 shot, ridden by Paul Townend for owner Tony Bloom – chairman of Brighton and Hove Albion – gave trainer Willie Mullins a first win in the race.

Energumene’s eagerly awaited rematch with Shishkin never played out as the favourite struggled in testing ground.

Shishkin’s stablemate Chacun Pour Soi unseated rider Patrick Mullins and 40-1 chance Funambule Sivola was second.
