THE South Kilkenny-based One For Luck Syndicate, owners of Cheltenham specialist Put The Kettle On, are counting down the days to Cheltenham and hoping that nothing stops their progressive mare from making the journey to the Cotswolds for a crack at the Grade 1 Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase.

Mary Dermody, together with her two sons John and Michael, and busy suckler and sheep farmer Keith Phelan from Ballyhale, make up the syndicate. She said: “With things the way they are, it’s something to look forward to and Aidan Coleman, who has won on her three times in Cheltenham, has been booked to ride her again.”
