Best Mate trainer Henrietta Knight to retire

Henrietta Knight, trainer of three-time Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Best Mate and one of National Hunt racing's most prominent figures, is to retire.

The 65-year-old says a majority of her horses will be taken over by footballer-turned-trainer Mick Channon.

"Largely due to my husband Terry Biddlecombe's continued ill health, I have decided to hand in my licence," she said on her website.

"I would like to thank everybody who helped me enjoy so many happy days."
