Result: Our Conor wins JCB Triumph Hurdle

Our Conor storms to victory in the JCB Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham.

Our Conor has won the JCB Triumph Hurdle as the Cheltenham Festival enters a fourth day.

The pre-race second favourite remained in the pack for the majority of the race, before taking on the lead with two fences remaining.

As he approached the last, he didn't need to get out of second gear, and he cantered to victory by 15 lengths.

Jockey Bryan Cooper told Channel 4: "I have never had a feeling like that in my life. He travelled everywhere. Once he got over the last, he idled to the line. He has got some ability."

Far West came home in second, with Sametegal in third.
