Medinas surprise 33-1 winner in Coral Cup

Medinas was winner of the Welsh Champion Hurdle on his previous start

Medinas sprang a 33-1 surprise for jockey Wayne Hutchinson and trainer Alan King in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham.

Hutchinson brought Medinas with a rattling run on the wide outside to challenge at the final flight, as the winner's stablemate Meister Eckhart and Fiveforthree from the Willie Mullins stable battled it out on the stands side.

Medinas, winner of the Welsh Champion Hurdle on his previous start, held the aces and swept to victory by two lengths from Meister Eckhart with Fiveforthree just a nose away. Master Of The Sea was fourth and Ericht fifth.
