Well sad little people duly emerged from their burrows to have a go from the safety of social media at Ruby Walsh, after Benie Des Dieux had fallen at the last in the OLBG Mares’ Hurdle at Cheltenham on Tuesday.
Walsh and Benie Des Dieux went down to the final flight with the contest in the bag, only for the eight-year-old to topple at the back of the obstacle.
She had jumped impeccably throughout and didn’t even make an error at the hurdle, but seemed to pitch on landing and was on the floor in a flash.
There was nothing Walsh could do, certainly there was no indication his partner would go to ground so easily.
