    Just about recovered from my trip there.

    Not for the first time, Jamie Codd saved me a fortune!

      What an absolutely amazing day it was today. Tinged with all sorts of emotions. My highlight, just, was Paisley Park winning the stayers for his lovely owner and Emma Lavelle, Barry Fenton and Aidan Coleman. But Bryony was fantastic. Sad that my favourite jockey Noel Fehily has decided to hang up his boots but hopefully he will get out in one piece, it does always give me the heebie jeebies when jockeys announce their retirement ahead of time... probably one of my favourite ever Cheltenham days and I didn’t win a penny...

            Sir Erec, favourite for the Triumph Hurdle, had to be reshod before the race, tragically broke a leg halfway around and had to be put down.

              Willie Mullins had four runners in the Gold Cup.
              Going out for the last circuit, only one, Al Boum Photo, was left.

              He went on to win it to give Mullins his first win in the race.

              Unfortunately, one of his other runners, Invitation Only had to be put down.

                  Was still a full horse so monetary value was going to rise if he kept on winning, JP owned him and can well stand the monetary loss, 3 horses died this year, so sad for everyone concerned.
