Another Great Day For Ireland And Rachael Blackmore At Cheltenham
Rachael Blackmore showed her class again on Day 3 of the 2021 Cheltenham Festival by riding Allaho to victory in the Grade One Ryanair Chase giving trainer Willie Mullins a record number of wins in the race.
We have introduced Allaho at 5/1 to win the same race next year following his wonderful display as the 3/1 favourite to beat Fakir D’Oudairies by a comfortable 12 lengths in a dominating performance.
This victory, along with the success on Telmesomethinggirl in the 4.15, has brought Rachael Blackmore up to five wins for the week so far with one more day to go.
There was a massive shock in the Grade One Marsh Novices’ Chase as the strongly fancied banker of the meeting Envoi Allen (2/5f) suffered a fall which resulted in Chantry House getting the job done for Nicky Henderson and Nico de Boinville at 9/1.
Chantry House was an impressive winner beating Fusil Raffles by three lengths and his odds have been chalked up at 14/1 to win both the Ryanair Chase and the Gold Cup next year.
It was another winner for the Irish team as Gavin Cromwell and Danny Mullins teamed up to win the Stayers’ Hurdle with 12/1 chance Flooring Porter.
This powerhouse made running up the Prestbury Park hill look easy, and his odds have been introduced at 10/1 to win the 3m trip again in 2022. This 6-year-old son of Yeats landed the Grade One Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown and has now followed that up with another Grade One success giving Danny Mullins his first ever Cheltenham Festival winner.
