Allaho produced a dominant front-running performance under Rachael Blackmore to give Willie Mullins a record fourth success in the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham.

Allaho was keen to assert from the off, going toe-to-toe with stablemate Min through the early part of the race before he eventually pushed on.

Blackmore took no prisoners on proven stayer Allaho, keeping up the searching gallop and building up a healthy lead turning for home.

The 3-1 favourite barely faltered up the straight, coasting home 12 lengths clear of Fakir D'oudairies, with another Mullins runner Tornado Flyer staying on for third. 

Blackmore, who was notching her fourth success at the meeting, said: "It's incredible, as a jockey when you're getting legged up on these kind of horses for Henry de Bromhead and Willie Mullins, they just know their job. It's fantastic.

"He was just jumping and travelling, he's a real galloper, that's how I rode him and it was either going to work or it wasn't and it worked. It's fantastic. It's an unbelievable position I'm in."
