Frodon (right) trails Aso jumping the last in the Ryanair
Bryony Frost secured her place in the record books as she became the first woman to ride a Grade One winner at the Cheltenham Festival with victory in the Ryanair Chase.
Partnering 9-2 shot Frodon for trainer Paul Nicholls, Frost was in the front rank throughout in the two-mile-five-furlong contest and the duo were marginally ahead of Aso jumping the last.
Aso appeared to just edge in front after the final fence – but Frodon would not lie down and he responded to Frost’s every urging to pull a length and a quarter clear at the line.
Aso (33-1) kept on for second, with Road To Respect claiming third.
