BIG BUCK'S became the first odds-on favourite of the week to oblige and he did it in style under an ultra-cool Ruby Walsh. The Festival's winning-most jockey sat motionless throughout on the imposing son of Cadoudal and he simply laughed at his rivals. Time For Rupert was the only one to mount any sort of challenge and as he was being pumped up the hill Big Buck's was lobbing along without appearing to try. Walsh waited until after the last to push him clear and he responded to win by a cosy three and a quarter lengths. He's 7-4 with Hills to win a third World Hurdle and barring injury he could be a shoo-in. Time For Rupert ran a super race and could go chasing now, while Cheltenham specialist Powerstation kept on well for third. Tidal Bay was never travelling while Karabak and Sentry Duty folded tamely.
