FULL RACE RESULT 

1st Ch'tibello (H Skelton) 12-1

2nd We Have A Dream (D A Jacob) 14-1

3rd Countister (B J Geraghty) 18-1 

Dan Skelton won the Randox Health County Handicap Hurdle for the third time in four years as Ch'tibello powered clear up the Cheltenham hill.

After Superb Story in 2016 and Mohaayed 12 months ago, Ch'tibello now has his name on the roll of honour.

Having run in the Champion Hurdle last year, his class was not in doubt - but he had not been seen since finishing second at Aintree in December.
