Davy Russell had a incredible 2014 Cheltenham Festival with three wins inclusing the feature on Gold Cup Friday.

During the 2011/12 season Davy Russell made it into the Top 20 winning most Cheltenham Festival jockeys since 1945 with victory on the Willie Mullin's trained Sir Des Champs in the Jewson Novices Chase.

Russell has managed at least one win at every Cheltenham Festival since his breakthrough in 2006.

Five of Davy Russell's last six Cheltenham Festival winners have come through his association with Michael O'Leary's Gigginstown House Stud. He lost that retainer at the end of 2013 and will be relying on the likes of Charles Byrnes, Jim Cullotty and Pat fahy to provide him with ammunition for the 2014 Cheltenham Festival. We have gathered video of  the " best bits" Davy Russells career to date on our forum.
