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.

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.
