WHAT a year for racing National Hunt star Rachael Blackmore who took time from her busy schedule to support the brilliant work of Tiggy’s Trust at Cheltenham last Friday.

Some 700 people attended the day which was a wonderful success for the Trust set up in memory of the late Tiggy Hancock (15).

Rachael is the firm favourite to win the coveted World Sports Star of the Year at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award, the voting for which closed on Tuesday.

All eyes will be on the results to see if our Grand National and Cheltenham heroine romps home in this prestigious race. Go Rachael!
