Queen of Cheltenham

She was beamed around the world for the last year’s performance.

And Rachael Blackmore will once again steal all the headlines for another record-breaking afternoon.

The BetVictor ambassador said: “I just didn’t want to do the same thing as last year because it didn’t work but the horses in front of me made sure I didn’t get there too soon. A Plus Tard felt very happy throughout the race this year, he jumped fantastically, I was able to take him back a little bit.

He was just good over the last two and he picked up incredibly after the last, it’s an incredible feeling when you do that at the back of the last at Cheltenham and they take off like he did.

I was kinda happy that if I was going to get beaten for doing something different as opposed to being in the position I was in last year. That definitely didn’t work, I was taking my luck and we got a split. It was incredible.

He’s a classy horse. He won at Leopardstown over two miles and he’s got plenty of pace and everyones has been happy with him. He’s a very talented horse and I’m very lucky to be riding him.
