Result: Salsify defends title by winning Foxhunter Chase

Salsify successfully defends his title in the Foxhunter Chase at Cheltenham.

Salsify has successfully defended his Foxhunter Chase title on day four of the Cheltenham Festival by coming from 10th in the pack to cross the finish line.

The racehorse was helped along when Jane Mangan, on board Oscar Delta, was suddenly dumped out of the side door due to trying to avoid a post that wasn't there, which caused her mount to jink.

Creevytennant took an early lead, but his jockey encountered difficulty when the racehorse continued to jump right at every barrier.

Salsify (2-1) clinched the title, while Divine Intavention (50-1) came second, Cottage Oak (9-1) finished third, and Doctor Kingsley (40-1) secured fourth.
