Jockey Rachael Blackmore pays tribute to Jack de Bromhead after victory at Cheltenham

The Cheltenham Festival ends on Friday after an exciting week of racing, but now it’s time for the Gold Cup.

It was all about Rachael Blackmore 12 months ago on A Plus Tard and the Irish woman has provided an update on the horse ahead of his attempt to defend the title.

There’s time for another full race card with seven exciting races to showcase the best in sport in the Cotswolds, including the highly anticipated Gold Cup.

The Irish trainers continue to shine and hope to triumph again after clinching the Prestbury Cup 12 months ago with a whopping 18 wins compared to just 10 for British-trained horses.

Faivoir wins the County Hurdle

Just look how close this victory came for Faivoir and Bridget Andrews. What a victory!

Bridget Andrews reacts after winning with Faivoir

“Getting a ride here is just a dream come true. Getting a second win at Cheltenham is a dream come true, for the best team I could ever work for.

“As jockey number two, there aren’t many big days. I am married to Harry [Skelton] but sometimes you want success for yourself.”

Bridget Andrews wins with Faivoir

Jockey Bridget Andrews put in a fantastic race and took a win ahead of Dan Skelton. It is the second time she has won this race and has held off Davy Russell and Pied Piper very well.

A late move from Faivoir sees him push forward as they go over the last. Pied Piper stands next to him and both horses sprint neck and neck to the line.

Nothing separates them, but Faivoir manages to get his nose up!

2.10 – County Obstacle

In the last two jumps, the leading duo remains clear, but the chasing peloton closes the gap. Highway One O Two is now alone in front, but Ballyadam launches an attack.

2.10 – County Obstacle

And they are finished! Two miles and eight hurdles to go in the County Hurdle. Prairie Dancer and Highway One O Two take the early lead.

2.10 – County Obstacle

The horses come onto the track. Pembroke has been supported in a favorites tag for Filey Bay and Hunters Yarn.

Will that translate into a win for Dan and Harry Skelton?

Tips from the experts

Ruby Walsh supports Ballyadam in the 2.10 County Hurdle saying, “If I went for a tip I would be there Ballyadam. I thought he was well behind Gaelic Warrior and at 25/1 he is probably too expensive.”

Ballyadam is a horse trained by Henry De Bromhead and will be ridden by Rachael Blackmore. Really not a bad scream at all.
