Quevega made history when winning the OLBG Mares' Hurdle for a record sixth year running at Cheltenham.

But the 10-year-old, sent off the 8-11 favourite, was made to work hard by her stable companion Glens Melody until getting her head in front in the final 100 yards.

Ruby Walsh allowed himself the luxury of easing down the amazing Willie Mullins-trained mare in the last few strides.

Glens Melody was beaten three-quarters of a length, with L'Unique the same distance back in third.

Quevega was surpassing the legendary Golden Miller, who won five successive Cheltenham Gold Cups from 1932-36, and did so in her own inimitable style.

Sirene D'Ainay made the running until she came down at the second-last flight.

Meanwhile, Walsh had made eyecatching progress on Quevega, who moved into third place before the final hurdle and set her sights on her stablemate to stride away up the hill and take her place in the record books.
