“This is the biggest race in his division, it’s an unbelievable achievement” Captain Guinness wins the Champions Chase as Willie’s wait for 100 goes on

Rachael Blackmore was thrilled, calling Henry de Bromhead “the most incredible of trainers” as Captain Guinness took advantage of two big mistakes to win the Champion chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

El Fabiolo and Edwardstone both failed to finish the race, leaving the Irish trained horse to sweep through and win by 45 lengths!

“It’s incredible for me to ride this horse and the fact it’s another race on my CV really makes me feel good too.” Blackmore said. “He’s a really enjoyable horse to ride, so smooth over the fences and able to produce a finish like that.”

Willie Mullins, trainer of heavy favourite El Fabiolo, was not interested in complaining about the performance of his horse, saying, he’ll “have a word with Paul about what to do now with El Fabiolo.

“Full credit to Racahel she rode admirably, composed and also took advantage of what happened in the field.” Mullins added showing the true sport he truly is.
