New Years Day 2015
New Years Day at Cheltenham is always a conundrum, do you sacrifice the night before to make the journey to the home of National Hunt racing or not !
This year the journey was made by many and what a start to the action for 2015.
Noel Fehily, who had been in such sparkling form over the festive period weighing in with a double and Jamie Bargary riding a big Saturday winner.
Ptit Zig once again displayed his class with some slick fencing and a tremendous change of pace to dismiss Champagne West who had tried to run the finish out of him, but all of that could not steal the limelight from the star of the show .....Rock on Ruby.
The roar from the stands when the former champion the front was immense and the journey was made worthwhile in under a furlong as he simply brushed aside solid opposition to win at his beloved Cheltenham yet again !
