More Of That (11/4) continued his unbeaten run under a classy ride from Tony McCoy in the Relkeel Hurdle.

The five-year-old had only had three runs prior to his appearance in the Grade Two contest but he belied his relative inexperience to land the spoils under an ice-cold ride from the champion jockey.

Salubrious attempted to make all under Daryl Jacob and he aimed to expose his rivals' limitations by racing at a sustained gallop.

Well clear with four to travel, it almost appeared as if Jacob had managed to pinch the race but both Tony McCoy and Ruby Walsh refused to panic and they began to take closer order as they made their way to the last.

Travelling with supreme confidence, McCoy allowed More Of That to ease gently to the front with over a furlong to go and score by two and a half lengths from the long-time leader.

Winning trainer Jonjo O'Neill said of the winner: "It's a big jump from a handicap but he's a pretty raw novice really and we're desperate to get more experience into him. We'll have to rethink things after that maybe.

  • Kentucky Hyden and Ballyglasheen battle it out after the last in the opener...
  • ...but Ballyglasheen was to get the better of the argument at odds of 33/1.
  • Le Bec and Sam Winner attack the Cheltenham fences...
  • ...and Sam Winner was to see off his old rival in the Ryman Stationery Novices' Chase.
  • Tony McCoy goes out to ride Eastlake, watched by daughter Eve...
  • ...and the champion jockey made his daughter proud with victory on Jonjo O'Neill's charge.
  • Kings Palace lands the odds in the Bristol Novices' Hurdle under Tom Scudamore.
  • Every vantage point was taken at Prestbury Park on Saturday.
  • Double Ross is booted clear in the Stewart Family Thank You Gold Cup...
  • ...and its the first leg of a big-race double for Nigel and Sam Twiston-Davies.
  • The New One clears the last ahead of Zarkandar in the International Hurdle...
  • and Sam Twiston-Davies gets the favourite home and into market leadership for the Champion Hurdle.
  • Rider and owners celebrate success.
  • Glens Melody and More That That are waited with in the Relkeel Hurdle...
  • ...but More Than That (right) is the one goes on to claim long-time leader Salubrious.

"He's actually Eastlake's full-brother so it's nice for them both to win on the same day.

"That's a nice way to get to 100 winners.

"He got injured last year and we were desperate to get some more experience into him. He still leaves his hind legs over some of the hurdles.

"I don't know what we will do now, I will have to have a chat with AP."

Sky Bet go 14/1 about More Of That for the Ladbrokes World Hurdle and spokesman Micahel Shinners said: "More Of That travelled really well and despite hitting a few hurdles he's well on top at the end. With perhaps a few doubts about At Fishers Cross in the same ownership we've introduced him into our World Hurdle betting at 14/1."
