My personal highlight of the 2019 Cheltenham Festival was Frodon winning the Ryanair Chase. Not only because it was a 15/2 winning tip from me to members of VG Tips. Not simply because it reflected another fine training performance by Paul Nicholls.
Who watching that race, and the post race interviews with jockey Bryony Frost, could fail to me moved by the victory? She is a breath of fresh air in racing and a talented jockey. Frost and Frodon get on well. Never more so than when the horse, which never knows when it’s beaten, encouraged Frost to steer on to victory when it looked as though the pair were headed late on.
