Ger Lyons was on the mark in Dubai this afternoon as Lily's Angel continued her winning ways on her first start at Meydan.

Gary Carroll partnerd the Dark Angel filly to a length-and-three-quarter success in the Longines Saint Imier Handicap.

It was a fourth success in a row for the four-year-old, who had rounded off last year with victories at Leopardstown and twice at Dundalk.

As the Cheltenham Festival grows brighter on the horse racing horizon, one race will be at the forefront of most fans' thoughts — the Gold Cup. The Gold Cup is the most prestigious race in the jumps racing calendar and has been won by many of the greats of the game, both human and equine. Each year, the race provides intrigue, drama and excellence matched by no other contest and the 2018 renewal of the Cheltenham Gold Cup promises to be no different.
