Zara Phillips is to carry the Olympic torch riding her World and European Championship-winning partner Toytown when the relay arrives at Cheltenham racecourse tomorrow (Wednesday 23 May).

The Queen’s granddaughter, whose mother the Princess Royal received the Olympic flame in Greece last week, will ride the last leg of the day at the Gloucestershire course.

Toytown, who was officially retired from eventing last year but who has not competed since 2009, will parade the length of the Cheltenham finishing straight.

Zara will then light a cauldron the mark the end of day five of the relay.
