Cheltenham Festival: Ted Veale reels in Tennis Cap
Tony Martin and Bryan Cooper teamed up for their second Cheltenham winner in two days
Friday 15 March 2013
Tony Martin and Bryan Cooper teamed up for their second Cheltenham winner in two days when Ted Veale reeled in long-time leader Tennis Cap in the Vincent O'Brien County Hurdle.
After the victory of Benefficient in the Jewson on Thursday, Cooper followed up his first win at the Festival in the opening Triumph Hurdle on Our Conor to make it a dream week for the young jockey.
Tennis Cap adopted his usual front-running role and had everything on the stretch coming down the hill - apart from Ted Veale (10-1) who was travelling ominously well.
While Ted Veale did not pull right away from the game Tennis Cap, he was always holding him and won by a length and a half.
Manyriverstocross flew home for third while Shadow Catcher claimed fourth.
