Ladbrokes World Hurdle 2017 Results

Unowhatimeanharry was sent off a red-hot favourite for the Sun Bets Stayers' Hurdle, but he was unable to land a third Championship success for Noel Fehily at the Cheltenham Festival, and it was Nichols Canyon, who wore down the tenacious Lil Rockerfeller to hand Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh their third winner of the afternoon.



Former Cole Harden took up its customary front-running tactics, and the rest of the field were happy to sit off the pace, but after Gavin Sheehan had kicked a long way from home he struggled to maintain the gallop, and it was Lil Rockerfeller, who took up the lead as they approached the final hurdle.





A length clear at the last, Lil Rockerfeller was being worn down by Unowhatimeanharry and Nichols Canyon, but the former of that duo failed to close, and it was left to Nichols Canyon to reel him in in the closing stages, and at 10/1 the Mullins-trained multiple Grade 1 winner eventually won by three-quarters-of-a-length.
