in first-time hood, proved better than ever, sitting behind a good pace suiting him better than being held up in steadily-run affairs, to a small extent getting first run on the runner-up, that enough given the fine margin between victory and defeat at the line; handy, went with zest, mistake fifth, quickened to lead on bridle 2 out, shaken up before last, kept on well run-in, had nothing to spare; he has clearly been seen to maximum advantage on the day, but that isn't to say he won't be the one to beat in this race in 2015, surely likely to stay over hurdles given his lack of size.

had won the previous 2 Grade 1 hurdles over this trip in Britain this season but just came up short in the biggest prize of all, emerging with plenty of credit and, given the fractions involved, he might have won another day, the positioning of the first 2 at the second last crucial; waited with, not settle fully, mistake fifth, close second when untidy last, kept on well final 100 yds; he could clearly win more races at this level should connections so choose, but, as suggested a year ago, he makes just as much appeal as a potential chaser, both in terms of physique and demeanour, and a clash between him and Vautour in the 2015 Arkle could well be one of the highlights of the Festival.

closely matched with the runner-up from the Christmas Hurdle, obviously shaped better than the bare result, though whether he would have won without the interference he suffered is debatable, still likely to have got outpaced as the tempo increased even if ideally positioned; in touch, badly hampered third, fair way off pace after though still travelling comfortably, outpaced approaching 2 out, stayed on strongly from last; he clearly has races in him at this level, not denied by lack of ability on his last 2 starts, and the Aintree Hurdle next month could well be the first, though a clash with Annie Power would be sure to test him to the full; as for future Champion Hurdle challenges, he might just come up short, unless conditions favour stamina more than they did here, as such a switch to fences next season a plausible option for connections.

was below form, his attempt at a third Champion Hurdle and a twentieth Grade 1 win in all falling short, perhaps ridden closer to the pace than was ideal for him, though it may well be that in his toughest assignment of the season it was his age that caught up with him, a rare mistake, albeit at the first, perhaps also a factor in his defeat; hit first, went prominent soon after, every chance 2 out, not quicken last, hung left run-in; he could yet have one last hurrah at Punchestown, though the chances of his returning to regain the crown here at the age of 11 must be doubted.

faced a stiff task in this grade and wasn't up to it, his jumping suffering as a result; held up, mistake first, blundered fifth, no chance after 3 out; he'll surely be going over fences next season and ought to do well in that sphere.

All 9 ran. Hurdles: 8.

Winning Owner: Mr John P. McManus

Time: 3m 44.6s Closing Sectional: (4.05f): 53.05s (103.9%)

A vintage Champion Hurdle in anticipation, even without Un de Sceaux and Annie Power, with a dual previous winner Hurricane Fly taken on by 4 top-class second-season hurdlers who had all run well at last year's Festival, a pair placed in a strong renewal of the Supreme, as well as the winners of the Baring Bingham and the Triumph; in the event, the outcome was inconclusive, the race marred by the fatal fall of Our Conor, that incident costing The New One his chance, though whether he would have won without the interference suffered is a moot point; the pace was good, Hurricane Fly closer to it than on his previous attempts at the race and possibly paying for that late on, Barry Geraghty on the winner showing once again his knack of always being in the right position in a race, that perhaps the reason he doesn't always get the plaudits he deserves, every bit as good on the big occasion as his outstanding contemporaries Walsh and McCoy.

JEZKI (IRE) in first-time hood, proved better than ever, sitting behind a good pace suiting him better than being held up in steadily-run affairs, to a small extent getting first run on the runner-up, that enough given the fine margin between victory and defeat at the line; handy, went with zest, mistake fifth, quickened to lead on bridle 2 out, shaken up before last, kept on well run-in, had nothing to spare; he has clearly been seen to maximum advantage on the day, but that isn't to say he won't be the one to beat in this race in 2015, surely likely to stay over hurdles given his lack of size.
