Lord Windermere Strikes Late To Land Cheltenham Gold Cup Glory

Friday 14th March 2014

Lord Windermere produced a tremendous late rally to land a memorable Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup as under a patient Davy Russell ride the Jim Culloty-trained 20/1 shot fought off a spirited effort from On His Own and The Giant Bolster to land the Cheltenham Festival blue riband event in a one-two for Ireland.

All eyes had been on the red-hot favourite Bobs Worth as he looked to try and retain his crown and the reigning champion was always in contention, but like last year was outpaced coming down the hill and it was On His Own, who had been prominent from the start who was setting the race up turning for home.

Davy Russell, who held Lord Windermere up throughout most of the race, gradually eased last year's RSA Chase winner into contention and jumping the last he came alongsides Silviniaco Conti, On His Own and The Giant Bolster, whilst Bobs Worth was struggling to pick up.

Russell then cajoled his mount a neck clear, but drited right in the closing stages and the owners were forced to wait a nervy stewards' inquiry, as On His Own was only beaten a short head, with The Giant Bolster just behind in third in what was a sensational renewal.
