Click to follow
Willie Mullins, who trains and will ride the strongly fancied Wither Or Which in the Festival bumper at Cheltenham on Wednesday, was banned for seven days (18-24 March) by the Navan stewards on Saturday for "making insufficient effort" on 11-2 chance Kings Return.

The horse led until early in the straight in a bumper, faded, and then ran on again to finish fifth.
