Finian's Rainbow secured a memorable 2012 Queen Mother Champion Chase as the 4/1 Nicky Henderson-trained raider got the better of 2011 champion Sizing Europe in an incident-packed performance on the second day of the Cheltenham Festival.

Turning for home the pair were upsides one another, but as the last fence was dolled off, it was Finian's Rainbow that benefited as Sizing Europe was unable to get clear of his adversary and Barry Geraghty managed to battle to the line and take the honours.
