ONE PHOTOGRAPHER GOT much closer to the action than he would have wanted on day two of the Cheltenham Festival and can count himself very to escape unharmed.

Coming to the end of the Cross Country Chase, both Toutancarmont and Quantitiveeasing crashed through a barrier and came into contact with the unlucky snapper.
