Special Tiara wins Queen Mother Champion Chase as Douvan struggles
- Updated: March 15, 2017
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.
Fehily had won Tuesday’s Champion Hurdle on Buveur D’Air.
“He felt great and never missed a beat,” a thrilled Fehily told BBC Radio 5 live. “I have been second in this race a few times so to win one is brilliant.”
