Winning and place distances

Distances for Cheltenham's Many Clouds race yesterday were:

hd 17 27 and then 3 1/2

17 lengths 27 lengths My question is what is the 3 1/2 is it furlongs?

Answer: No it is not furlongs - the 3 1/2 is also lengths (the same as the other distances)

You might be thinking that the distances shown are those from the winner but in fact are the distances between each horse.

The distance between the winner and 2nd is a head and the distance between the 2nd and the 3rd is 17 lengths.
