11-to-8 favourite Paisley Park has claimed the feature race on day 3 of the Cheltenham Festival.

The Emma Lavelle-trained 7-year old came home ahead of 33-to-1 chance Sam Spinner, with Faugheen third at a price of 4-to-1.

Bryony Frost has become the first ever female jockey to ride a Grade One winner at the Cheltenham Festival.

She guided 9-to-2 shot Frodon to victory in the Ryanair Chase for trainer Paul Nicholls.

Barry Geraghty rode the first two winners of the day.

He inspired 4-to-1 favourite Sire du Berlais (PR: Ber-lay) to a late surge to claim the Pertemps Handicap Hurdle for trainer Gordon Elliott.

Geraghty also rode the favourite - Defi du Seuil (PR: Soy) - to victory in the Grade 1 JLT Novices' Chase.
