Energumene maintained his unbeaten record over fences and confirmed he is likely to be Shishkin’s biggest rival in the two-mile chasing division next season with an emphatic front-running success in the Grade One Ryanair Novice Chase at Punchestown on Thursday evening.
Running in the blue and white colours of Tony Bloom, the chairman of Brighton & Hove Albion, Energumene was immediately sent clear of his three opponents by Paul Townend and had galloped them into submission with two fences still to jump.
