Join Together: Won under Walsh

Ruby Walsh and Paul Nicholls registered a treble after Join Together (4-1) won the Ultima Frontrunner In IT Solutions Novices' Chase at Cheltenham.

The duo combined to win with Hinterland and Edgardo Sol earlier on the card and Join Together showed great character to complete a terrific day for Nicholls' Ditcheat team.

Viking Blond made much of the running in the three-mile contest but gave way to Join Together, Teaforthree (11-1) and Restless Harry up the hill as the trio fought out a gruelling finish.

Join Together won by one-and-a-half-lengths from Teaforthree with 5-4 favourite Restless Harry, who made mistakes, back in third.

Nicholls said: "Ruby gave him a beautiful ride. He travelled like the winner at Chepstow and was a bit unlucky.

"We always thought he'd make a chaser. He'll be better when the ground's slower."

Walsh added: "He was very unlucky to fall at Chepstow. It was a true run race but he found plenty from the back at the last."
