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.
