A star is born in the JLT Reve De Sivola Long Walk Hurdle

Sam Spinner and Joe Colliver produced career-best performances to win the JLT Reve De Sivola Long Walk Hurdle.

The improving five-year-old is a new star of the staying scene as he held off rivals L’Ami Serge and Unowhatimeanharry and won from the front to become one to watch for the Cheltenham Festival.

The three-runner Sodexo Graduation Chase looked to be a straightforward success for favourite Adrien Du Point at the third last, however Coney Island had other ideas.

Barry Geraghty had ten lengths to find but quickly closed the gap and ended up pulling clear to win with Coney Island after nearly a year off the track.

The Lavazza Silver Cup produced a fine finish, with Gold Present chasing down long-term leaders Frodon and Elgin to land the prize at 17/2.

Hunters Call landed the Racing Welfare Handicap Hurdle in fine style for the impressive Jack Kennedy. 

It was an exciting start to the day as Lizzie Kelly guided One Of Us to win the opening race of the day.

Mr Medic landed the My Pension Expert Handicap Chase after a vintage ride from James Best.
