Presenting Percy came with a perfectly-timed run under Davy Russell to lead over the final flight in the Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle and win by three and three-quarter lengths at odds of 11/1.
The Nicky Henderson-trained Might Bite (7/2 favourite) rallied amazingly in the closing stages to edge a dramatic finish after appearing to throw certain victory away in the Grade One RSA Novices' Chase.

Special Tiara (11/1) delivered the finest performance of his career to be crowned a shock winner of the 2017 Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase with a superb front-running performance in the two-mile chasing championship, the feature race on day two, Ladies Day, of the Cheltenham Festival.
Locally-based trainer Ben Pauling lapped up the glory of his first Cheltenham Festival success after Willoughby Court saw off red-hot favourite Neon Wolf in a titanic battle for the Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle.
Denis O'Regan added a fourth Festival winner to his record when Tully East took the final race on the first day of the Festival, the Close Brothers Novices' Handicap Chase, on the Alan Fleming-trained Tully East.

Connections of Limini pointed to it having been a "big ask" to pitch her into the Stan James Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival after the mare somewhat surprisingly failed to feature at the six-day entry stage for the two-mile blue riband.
Connections of Vibrato Valtat are hoping the Grade One winner can register his first success since November 2015 when he makes a rare appearance out of open company in the Greatwood Gold Cup Handicap Chase at Newbury.
