Paul Nicholls ended his yearlong wait for a win with three wins at Cheltenham

Paul Nicholls ended his yearlong wait for a win with three wins at Cheltenham

The barely credible statistic that 12-time champion coach Paul Nicholls had gone over a year without a winner at Cheltenham ended in London bus style after victories by Threeunderthrufive, Timeforatune and Yala Enki.

You had to go back to the Magic Saint victory on Friday from this equivalent meeting last year to get the final victory at the jump racing venue for Nicholls.

“It’s nice to be back in the winners’ compound after hitting the crossbar for the last few days,” he said.

Threeunderthrufive could return for the National Hunt Chase at this season’s Festival after proving endurance was his forte by landing Mallardjewellers.com Novices’ Chase by more than four lengths behind Harry Cobden.

Bryony Frost was aboard Yala Enki in the Jewson Handicap Chase marathon. She conjured up a daring jumping and running effort for a long and fourth victory.

The Welsh National in Chepstow on December 27, a race in which he has been placed three times, calls out the gelding, which still has bags of enthusiasm as it approaches 12.

Timeforatune sealed the highs by winning the Cobden Low Bumper.
