The luck of the Irish continues as Belfast Banter triumphs in the McCoy Contractors County Handicap Hurdle

Belfast Banter romped home to victory under Kevin Sexton to take the McCoy Contractors County Handicap Hurdle on Day Four at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival. The Peter Fahey 33/1 shot slowly stalked his way through the contest, however he was sent at the perfect time going up the hill with the whole complexion of the race changing completely after the final flight.

Neil Mulholland looked as though he might bag a winner at this point with 28/1 punt Milkwood, however in the end he had to make do with third place as both winner Belfast Banter and second-placed Petit Mouchoir (22/1) went past him in the latter stages of the encounter.

Eclair De Beaufeu edged out rival Edwardstone to clinch fourth.
