1:30 – JCB Triumph Hurdle Result

Position Horse Jockey Trainer Distance SP
1st Vauban Paul Townend Willie Mullins 2½ lengths 6/4F
2nd Fil D’Or Davy Russell Gordon Elliott neck 11/2
3rd Pied Piper Jack Kennedy Gordon Elliott 4¾ lengths 7/2

In the opening Triumph Hurdle, Irish juveniles dominated with Emerald Isle raiders the first five home. Heading those were Vauban, who confirmed Leopardstown form with Fil D’Or in the Cheltenham day 4 results here. This was a sixth winner of the Festival for trainer Mullins.

Davy Russell chose correctly from the two Gordon Elliott runners with previous course and distance winner Pied Piper only third. This race belonged to Mullins, Paul Townend and owners Rich and Susannah Ricci, though. Vauban looks sure to have his Champion Hurdle odds cut off the back of this.

2:10 – County Hurdle Result

Position Horse Jockey Trainer Distance SP
1st State Man Paul Townend Willie Mullins 1¼ lengths 11/4F
2nd First Street Nico de Boinville Nicky Henderson 1¾ lengths 16/1
3rd Colonel Mustard Conor Orr [3] Lorna Fowler 2¼ lengths 13/2
4th West Cork Harry Skelton Dan Skelton ¾ of a length 13/2

State Man looked like the proverbial graded horse in a handicap when landing the County Hurdle with any amount in hand. His success made it a magnificent seven Festival wins for Mullins with Townend again aboard.

First Street chased him home for Nicky Henderson with Cheltenham day 4 results showing Colonel Mustard in third. The Greatwood Hurdle winner West Cork also hit the frame for trainer-jockey brothers Dan and Harry Skelton.

2:50 – Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle Result

Position Horse Jockey Trainer Distance SP
1st The Nice Guy Sean O’Keeffe Willie Mullins 5 lengths 18/1
2nd Minella Cocooner Paul Townend Willie Mullins 4¼ lengths 9/2
3rd Bardenstown Lad Sean Bowen John McConnell 4 lengths 20/1

In a race where there is often a turn up, 18/1 chance The Nice Guy led home a 1-2 for Mullins, who made it an incredible eight winners and a treble on the day. He outstayed Minella Cocooner to land the Albert Bartlett, while the market principals Hillcrest and Ginto both pulled up.

This was one of the more shocking Cheltenham day 4 results here, but the the winner was lightly-raced and unexposed under Sean O’Keeffe. There was an Irish 1-2-3 in this 3m Grade 1 with course winner Bardenstown Lad hitting the frame ahead of Ballygrifincottage.

3:30 – Cheltenham Gold Cup Result

Position Horse Jockey Trainer Distance SP
1st A Plus Tard Rachael Blackmore Henry De Bromhead 15 lengths 3/1F
2nd Minella Indo Robbie Power Henry De Bromhead 2½ lengths 7/1
3rd Protektorat Harry Skelton Dan Skelton short-head 10/1

A Plus Tard went one better than 12 months earlier and turned around past Gold Cup results with stable companion Minella Indo as Henry De Bromhead saddled the 1-2 in the blue riband steeplechase again. The winner stormed 15 lengths clear up the famous hill, reversing previous form in emphatic style.

Despite a mistake at the last, Protektorat just held on to third by a short-head from Galvin with Royale Pagaille in fifth. Rachael Blackmore became the first female jockey to win the Gold Cup here, continuing to break gender boundaries. Of all Cheltenham day 4 results, this will dominate the headlines.

4:10 – Festival Open Hunters Chase Result

Position Horse Jockey Trainer Distance SP
1st Billaway Patrick Mullins Willie Mullins neck 13/8F
2nd Winged Leader Barry O’Neill David Christie 12 lengths 9/2
3rd Mighty Stowaway Jamie Codd Gordon Elliott 13 lengths 33/1

Billaway stayed on from a seemingly impossible position to ensure Mullins set a new record for most Festival winners. This horse made it third time lucky in the Hunters Chase, getting up in the dying strides to overhaul Winged Leader by a neck under trainer’s son and crack amateur Patrick.

This was three years in the making with previous Cheltenham day 4 results seeing Billaway finish second twice before in the race. He delivered here, though, with another Irish 1-2-3 here. David Christie can feel unlucky to have been caught up the hill with Winged Leader a dozen lengths clear of Mighty Stowaway.

4:50 – Mrs Paddy Power Mares Chase Result

Position Horse Jockey Trainer Distance SP
1st Elimay Mark Walsh Willie Mullins ½ lengths 9/4
2nd Pink Legend Charlie Deutsch Venetia Williams nose 28/1
3rd Scarlet And Dove Bryan Cooper Joseph O’Brien 4 lengths 33/1

Elimay went one better than 12 months ago in the Mares Chase, showing great heart and desire to get up and prevail. Even though stable companion Concertista was backed into favourite, but was only fifth. Mullins made it an incredible 10 victories at the Festival and a five-timer on the day.

The Cheltenham day 4 results show two outsiders hitting the frame here with Pink Legend just a nose ahead of Scarlet And Dove. Grand National hope Mount Ida disappointed too. Elimay avenged her defeat by the mighty Colreevy in gutsy fashion here.

5:30 – Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle Result

Position Horse Jockey Trainer Distance SP
1st Banbridge Mark McDonagh Joseph O’Brien 1½ lengths 12/1
2nd Cobblers Dream Jack Andrews Ben Case 2¼ lengths 12/1
3rd Hollow Games Jordan Gainford Gordon Elliott head 9/2
4th Freedom To Dream Liam Harrison Peter Fahey 2¾ lengths 20/1

An eventful finale to the Cheltenham day 4 results saw Banbridge avoid early carnage to land the Martin Pipe. Last year’s second Langer Dan made his exit before the race developed. Joseph O’Brien took this for the second time but this was a first Festival success for conditional jockey Mark McDonagh.

Banbridge found plenty up the hill despite the interreference of a loose horse. Cobblers Dream chased him home ahead of Hollow Games with Freedom To Dream also in the frame for Ireland. This brought the curtain down on another compelling Cheltenham Festival.
