Camlann brought up a double for jockey Danny Mullins when he obliged at 25/1 in the concluding novice chase at Killarney.

The seven-year-old gelding swept through to lead at the penultimate fence and was full of running as he came in by four lengths from the gambled-on Le Martalin (8/1 to 5/1).

Robin Des Foret, the even-money favourite, jumped less than fluently and finished third. Danny Mullins said: "We were a bit disappointed when he was beaten the last day but he had the hood on him and he is getting older and I think stepping up in trip was a big help to him.

"Michael Mee and the Shark (Hanlon) have done a good job with him and he ran in Galway three times last year and performed better each day.

"I'd say they'll plan towards there and he now has plenty options."

Trainer Shark Hanlon was at Ascot Sales.
