BetVictor Brand Ambassador, Rachael Blackmore heads to next week’s Cheltenham Festival with an exciting book of rides. We’ve caught up with the rider once again, as she shares her thoughts ahead of the action.

Cheltenham Thoughts

“I’m really looking forward to it. At this stage I just can’t wait to head over there and get going. Obviously, there’s a lot of hype around The Festival, but I just want to get started on what should be a really exciting week ahead.

The first and second bunch of our horses will travel over in the next couple of days. Everything has gone well over the last week and we’re just making sure they all get over there in one piece.”

Before the action at Cheltenham, Rachael picks up the ride aboard Cheb De Kerviniou on Sunday at Naas.

Today’s Ride

“On Sunday, I will be partnering Cheb De Kerviniou in the Leinster National (15.15) for Gordon Elliott. He’s been a consistent performer who stays and jumps well. He will be tongue-tied for the first time, so we’re hoping that can further his chances on the day. It’s an exciting ride and we’re hoping he’s not too far away.”

All of us here will be glued to the action at Prestbury Park next week and wish Rachael all the best and a successful four days on the Cotswolds.
