Special Tiara (11-1) landed the Queen Mother Champion Chase to give jockey Noel Fehily a second big-race win at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival.

The winner, who was third in the last two runnings of the race, finished a head clear of Fox Norton (7-1) with Sir Valentino (33-1) third.

The 2-9 favourite Douvan jumped disappointingly and was never in contention.
