TAMMYS Hill remains the last winner at the Cheltenham Festival to have been trained in Northern Ireland, and the latest line in the family of the ill-fated 2014 Cheltenham Foxhunters hero was in the winner’s enclosure at Kirkistown, when Kates Hill opened her account in the mares’ maiden.

With the form of her three-length defeat at Curraghmore last month having received a timely boost when her conqueror, Getawayrooney, won again at Turtulla, the daughter of Jeremy was the clear form pick for the race.
