In what was a suitably thrilling finish, Jessica Harrington's Sizing John etched his name into the history books and claimed Gold Cup glory at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival. Willie Mullins' Djakadam cruised through the race, with Native River setting a good pace at the front of the field. As the two-time runner-up made his move on the leader, Sizing John followed him through, travelling equally as well. Djakadam clattered into the second-last hurdle and as Native River started to toil, Sizing John stretched away, staying strong over the last furlong to deny a recovering Djakadam, a tenacious Native River and a charging Minella Rocco to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup.Full Cheltenham Gold Cup Result:1st.
