Cheltenham 2017: Nichols Canyon wins Stayers' Hurdle ridden by Ruby Walsh
- Updated: March 16, 2017
Nichols Canyon made it a hat-trick of wins for jockey Ruby Walsh and trainer Willie Mullins as they shocked odds-on favourite Unowhatimeanharry to win the Stayers’ Hurdle at Cheltenham.
Walsh and Mullins had already won in the Novices’ Chase and Ryanair Chase before overhauling Lil Rockerfeller.
Unowhatimeanharry was looking for a ninth straight win but could only finish third under jockey Noel Fehily.
Walsh now has a record 55 Cheltenham Festival wins.
