Dorset Racehorse trainer Harry Fry goes in search of his first ever Cheltenham Festival winners today.

Fry, who operates from stables at Seaborough, near Beaminster, has three runners today, the first day of 2015's four day festival.

Retiring champion jockey A P McCoy rides 'Jollyallan' in the first, the Sky Bet Supreme novices hurdle at 1.30pm 'Mendip Express' runs in a handicap chase at 2.40pm, while 'Bitofapuzzle' races in the Mares' hurdle at 4pm.

Fry has scheduled runners on each of the four days, but goes without Rock On Ruby, who was withdrawn from Thursday's 'World Hurdle' with an airway infection.
