In a year which saw quite a few negative stories about the racing industry, Rachael Blackmore has been a breath of fresh air, and her wins at Cheltenham in March gave the sport a great boost.

She had to settle for second place in the Gold Cup on board A Plus Tard, but she battled hard all the way and at one stage, A Plus Tard traded as low as 2/5 in-running on Betfair. Minella Indo held on to give Henry de Bromhead a famous one-two, with Willie Mullins’ favourite Al Boum Photo, which carried my money, in third.
