Celestial Halo made every yard at Wincanton

Celestial Halo made every yard at Wincanton

Celestial Halo won the Grade Two totepool Elite Hurdle at Wincanton for the second time in three years, providing Paul Nicholls with a fourth winner on the card in the process.

Sent into an early lead by Daryl Jacob, the 85/40 chance set a strong pace in a bid to run the finish out of favourite Grandouet.

Nicky Henderson's horse refused to settle for Barry Geraghty but was poised to join the eventual winner two from home, only to take off half a stride early and fall.

Celestial Halo was kept up to his work to win by a 16 lengths over Aine's Delight, who stayed on from a long way back to snatch second from Act Of Kalanisi, with Simply Blue a well-beaten fourth.
