Il Etait Temps was a shock winner as Facile Vega finished last of all in the Tattersalls Ireland Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown on Sunday.

Both horses are trained by Willie Mullins, but it was Facile Vega who was widely expected to triumph as the 4/9 favourite.

He faded quickly out of the race after turning for home, however, whereas his stablemate was able to accelerate under Danny Mullins to stun onlookers with a nine-and-a-half-length success at 14/1.

There had been drama earlier on, too, when one-time Derby favourite High Definition parted company with JJ Slevin.
