Delight for Bridget Andrews with County Hurdle success for Mohaayed

Bridget Andrews celebrates on Mohaayed after winning the County Hurdle Bridget Andrews landed her first success at the Cheltenham Festival when driving Mohaayed home in a driving finish to the Randox Health County Handicap Hurdle.
The 3lb-claiming conditional rider was embraced by her partner Harry Skelton, who rode stablemate Spiritofthegames into sixth place, when the horses pulled up after the line.
Sternrubin and Tigris River took the 24-runner field along until the serious end of the ultra-competitive contest and it was hard to call the winner at the final flight.
Mohaayed (33-1), trained by Skelton's brother Dan, produced the best turn of foot to take the spoils by two and three-quarter lengths from Remiluc, with Whiskey Sour third and Chesterfield fourth.
Andrews said: "It's unbelievable. He's given me a dream ride. He galloped all the way to the line.
"I couldn't believe he handled the ground. He's got some good form in the book, we knew he could do it but sort of wrote him off because of the ground.
"I just can't believe it."
