    Today, of course, will be the final Champion Hurdle involving Robbie Power.

    Yesterday, the Cheltenham Gold Cup and Grand National-winning jockey, 40, announced his decision to retire from horse racing following the Festival.

    He said: "I've had so many highs, I've had a wonderful career and hopefully the next two days go well."
