Relegate flies home for emotional Katie Walsh in Champion Bumper

Relegate Relegate came from the clouds to deny stablemate Carefully Selected and provide Willie Mullins with another winner in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper at Cheltenham as he once again dominated the race.
It was a ninth win in the event for the champion trainer but a first for Katie Walsh, who delivered the mare right on the line.
Her brother Ruby was supposed to be riding the narrow runner-up, but had earlier been taken to hospital for X-rays following a fall.
Danny Mullins stole a march at the start on Carefully Selected and right until the dying moments it looked as if it would prove crucial, only for Relegate (25-1), now unbeaten in three starts, to fly up the hill.
Tornado Flyer claimed third to give Mullins a clean sweep.
