Harry Fry’s charge stormed up the famous Prestbury Park hill but left too much work to do, eventually taking fifth of the 21 runners.

Joe Tizzard’s outside shot Killer Kane came home in 15th as legendary football manager Harry Redknapp enjoyed a first Cheltenham Festival winner courtesy of Shakem Up’Arry.

Having watched his former managerial rival Sir Alex Ferguson notch a double earlier on the card, it was soon the turn of the former West Ham, Portsmouth and Tottenham boss.

Dorset trainer Fry has three runners in action on the final day, including the unbeaten Gidleigh Park.
