  • Native River horse

Our first runner in the race, the jockey's first ride in the race and trainer Jessica Harrington's first horse in the race.

"I went to plenty of Cheltenham preview nights and people were saying it was a bad Gold Cup--I was kind off insulted because every good Gold Cup victor has Grade 1 form over two miles". His Gold Cup preview is here. It is impossible to know how he would have fared had he stood up, there is a school of thought that says that he wouldn't have beaten Don Cossack anyway, but he was travelling well and we will never know for certain.

Native River is another popular selection at 5/1 and has everything in his locker to overcome the odds.

"I'm lucky in the fact that I'm associated with a horse who has the ability to line up for it and that's why I'm here - in the same way that [Sheedy] did 33 years ago", she did.

Every jockey dreams of winning the Gold Cup but at this stage of your life you don't think it's going to happen.

The worry about Cue Card is that he is 11, and no horse aged older than 10 has won the Gold Cup since 1969. Won Festival race - Ryanair and come second in the Arkle. "He was the first runner I had in the Irish Gold Cup, and he won that too", she said.

Despite his late charge, Mullins couldn't hold off Gordon Elliott in the race to be leading trainer at the Festival. Djakadam is now favourite for the Gold Cup, and that is as it should be.

Strongest Possible Liverpool Starting XI vs Burnley
Jurgen Klopp believes his side's inconsistency makes them the rollercoaster of the Premier League. Results of last five games can perfectly describe Liverpool's season so far.

Given a patient ride by Robbie Power, the seven-year-old completed the English-Irish Gold Cup double in style to dispel any stamina doubts.

The stand-out piece of form for Mick Jazz has to be his run behind Labaik at Navan when he was 12/1 but looked all over the victor before his grey stable companion came and done him close to home.

"I'm thrilled, he had a great spin round and finished as strongly as anything".

Harrington said: "It's just wonderful".

Two fences in, it was all over for the 23-year-old.

Grade One victor as a novice at Kempton last season, when Native River was third.

"When he pulled him out on the second circuit, he began jumping well".

Sky Bet's Michael Shinners, whose firm were offering 14/1 in the aftermath, said: "He couldn't quite get to Sizing John up the hill but Minella Rocco has run a tremendous Grand National trial. I wasn't too anxious about the result because we have had such a good day anyway but Defi made it look easy", she said.
