CHELTENHAM: Lizzie Kelly bags Cheltenham winner aboard Coo Star Sivola
on 13 March 2018
Jockey Lizzie Kelly has experienced her first Cheltenham Festival success in the Ultima Handicap Chase aboard Coo Star Sivola

COO STAR SIVOLA clung on grimly to provide jockey Lizzie Kelly with her first Cheltenham Festival success in the Ultima Handicap Chase on Tuesday.

Having opened his account over fences at the fifth attempt at Exeter less than three weeks ago, the Nick Williams-trained six-year-old was a well-backed 5/1 favourite for this three-mile-one-furlong contest.

Conditional jockey Kelly kept things simple aboard the market leader, settling just in behind the leading group, before allowing him to stride to the front before the home turn.

He was getting weary as the post loomed and Shantou Flyer came home to good effect, but Coo Star Sivola had just enough in the locker to hold him at bay by a neck.

Vintage Clouds and Beware The Bear finished third and fourth respectively.
