Willie Mullins' Terminal (15/8) got the better of the odds-on favourite Tofino Bay in the Irish Form Book Ten Up Novice Chase at Navan.

The market leader set out to make all of the running under Davy Russell but the fractions were only steady given the gruelling conditions.

Heading down the home straight for the final time in the three mile contest, Tofino Bay and Tillahow stuck to the inside of the course, separated by the width of the track from Terminal and He's A Delight.

There was little to choose between the two principals when they closed together at the second last but the Ruby Walsh ridden Terminal proved the stronger of the pair.

Mullins and owners the Gigginstown House Stud joined forces to take the concluding bumper with Made In Germany (9/10 favourite) in the hands of the trainer's son, champion amateur Patrick.
