"I cannot believe it," Blackmore said. "He was a sensational spin. I'm so lucky to be riding. It is unbelievable.
"He was just incredible and jumped beautifully. I tried to wait as long as I could. When I jumped the last and asked him for a bit, he was there.
"I don't feel male or female right now, I don't even feel human. This is just unbelievable."
Favourite Cloth Cap, ridden by Tom Scudamore, pulled up at the third last fence.
The race took place without fans due to restrictions put in place due to the coronavirus.
