Horse with Inniskeen connections goes agonisingly close to a place in Cheltenham Festival opener

Paul Townend and Aramon came up just short of a place in today's Cheltenham Festival opener.

Willie Mullins-trained Aramon fell just shy of a place in today's Cheltenham Festival opener, finishing sixth as stablemate Klassical Dream claimed victory with Ruby Walsh on board.

Co-owned by Inniskeen's Daniel McGahon, the 14/1 shot looked good approaching the famous hill, but fell away from the frontrunners, with Inside Track tip, Ichy Feet, finishing third.

28/1 shot Thomas Darby was second.
