On the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival, Buveur D'Air ran out a brilliant winner of the showpiece Champion Hurdle, powering clear in the hands of jockey Noel Fehily to beat stablemate My Tent Or Yours, who finished second for the third time.
Fehily said of his 5-1 winner: "Early on I felt I was doing too much and I thought it took me a while to get him switched off.
"He's just a very good horse. It's just fantastic. It was a great performance."
