Gold Cup: Hazel Hill wins Foxhunters Chase in style

Favourite Hazel Hill won the Foxhunters Chase on the final day of the Cheltenham festival.

The Gold Cup had a lot to live up to. But this was a competitive race, which was led by Road to Rome, before he faded; Shantou Flyer finished second at odds of 7/2. Top Wood finished third – he was placed at 33/1.

Jockey Alex Edwards expressed his delight at winning the race following a composed and controlled ride throughout.

“It is absolutely unbelievable – I love this horse,” he said. “He has run 15 times and I think he has won 14 of them.

“We are in a very lucky position to ride horses like these.”
