You can almost hear the punters shouting at television sets over this one.

There was late, late drama at Ffos Las Racecourse his afternoon as Gavin Sheehan, streaking clear on 4-11f Bob Mahler, was unseated in the final metres of the race.

Having cleared the last fence ahead of 11-2 shot Swift Crusader and pulling away in the final stretch, Sheehan was then somehow knocked off balance and became unseated.

Luckily, he was not injured in the fall and was back on his feet within seconds. Bob Mahler finished without a rider and watched on as Swift Crusader claimed victory.
