During the week he managed to land his 100th winner at the Festival, with Jasmine De Vaux scoring in the Champion Bumper to bring up the centenary.

Paul Townend had another sparkling week finishing out the top jockey for a consecutive year and he managed to land back to back Gold Cups on board the superstar Galopin Des Champs.

For the British it was all about Dan and Harry Skelton as the pair landed four winners each across the week to be one of the few shining lights for the home team.

The highest winner BSP of the week came on Friday with Stellar Story scoring for Gordon Elliott at 46.045/1, and the lowest winning price of the week was State Man in the Champion Hurdle at 1.528/15

Worries over whether Dinoblue would stay the trip were shown as she was Ice on the Exchange and layers proved to be right. However, the fire horse Allegorie De Vassy could only manage a remote fourth.

Having been fire on the Betfair Exchange, Its On The Line looked to have the race at his mercy but was collared up the hill.

Trainer Fiona Needham won the race 22 years ago as a jockey, now she has trained the winner of the Hunters' Chase. That is what the Cheltenham Festival is all about.

Betfair tipster Rhys Williams tipped up the winner in his day 4 column at 16/117.00 having gone off at a BSP of 11.521/2.

15:30 - Gold Cup Result - Galopin Des Champs lands back to back Gold Cups

Winner: Galopin Des Champs

The Story: Galopin Des Champs writes himself into Cheltenham Festival folklore as he lands back to back Gold Cups.

Ridden more prominently this year he was up near the front from the start of the race and with the loose horse Fastorslow causing issues he showed his class to land the race in its 100th year.

Gerri Colombe plugged on for second, with Grand National winner Corach Rambler staying on from the back of the field for third.

A horse of a lifetime for connections, and a third winner on the afternoon for Willie Mullins who now has nine for the week.

Betfair tipster Kevin Blake had been strong all week on Galopin Des Champs and he lands another winner for the Festival having tipped it up on his column and the Racing Only Bettor Podcast.

Winner: Stellar Story

The Story: Stellar Story lands the Albert Bartlett at a huge price of 33/134.00 as only two horses ever got involved in the race.

The Jukebox Man for Ben Pauling led the field from the outset to just be chinned on the line by the Gordon Elliott trained horse.

Having hit a low of 1.03 it was sickening to see him win the race everywhere bar the line, which would have been a nice winner for team England. The winner hit a high of 120 to give jockey Sam Ewing his first ever Cheltenham Festival winner.

Ireland have now won all three of the races on day 4 of the Cheltenham Festival.

L'Eau Du Sud looked to be landing the odds for favourite backers but had to settle the second was fire on the Betfair Exchange before the off.

Pied Piper and Magical zoe ran nice races but could only manage third and fourth.

Another winner for Ireland. Another winner for Mullins. That is now eight winners so far on the week for the Closutton maestro.

Having been fire on the Betfair Exchange Bunting under performed and although he was a drifter in the market and having the Ice tag on the Majborough ran out a good winner.

That now sees Prestbury Cup stand at 13-8 to Ireland.
