Ruby Walsh Given Two-Day Suspension For Excessive Use Of Whip

Ruby Walsh Given Two-Day Suspension For Excessive Use Of Whip

Kelly, who was unseated from Tea for Two at last year's meeting after lining up as the first female rider in the Gold Cup for 33 years, guided Coo Star Sivola to glory, edging out runner-up Shantou Flyer.

It was also Henderson's seventh race victor - another record for a trainer whose place in the pantheon of National Hunt legend has always been secure.

Samcro is only 4/1 for the 2019 Grade 1 RSA Chase and 16/1 for the 2019 Gold Cup.

With his stable companion Charli Parcs ensuring a sound gallop alongside the 2015 champion Faugheen, Buveur D'Air was given a nice lead into the race and although his jumping was not as sure-footed as usual, he arrived on the scene travelling powerfully after jumping the second flight from the finish.

Worldpay has outlined its predictions for this week's Cheltenham Festival, detailing that there could be as much as a 45% surge in online betting activity during the four-day festival, as racing fans seek to beat the bookies.

"That was the sort of brilliant race that makes the Festival what it is", said Henderson. Two years ago, we saw seven horses lose their lives during the highly anticipated racing festival.




"It was a proper race. He's a really good young horse and he did what he needed".

"I'm just trying to keep up with Nicky", he joked. I'm thrilled as Barry missed out last year and whilst Noel gave him a great ride last year, it was nice that Barry was involved and got to share in it and enjoy it. "I thought we had it all to do after the last but it was his strength that got us through".

Cause Of Causes has already guaranteed his place in Cheltenham folklore by winning three different races at the last three Festivals and he may not have finished yet.

Owner JP McManus is responsible for Irish Gold Cup victor Edwulf (Joseph O'Brien), last year's runner-up Minella Rocco (Jonjo O'Neill) and Anibale Fly (Tony Martin).

Bex, from Harry Cooks Freehouse, said "it's going to be very crazy" while Gordan, owner of John Gordans in Cheltenham, said it "kicks off the season". My horse is as tough as nails. He dug deep and he scrapped and I think he's proved himself an even better horse. The ground made it the ultimate test.
