The 22-year-old daughter of Grand National winner Jimmy Frost will go head to head with boyfriend Harry Cobden, 19.

She will ride Black Corton against Mr Cobden on Elegant Escape. With their horses on odds of 6/1 and 8/1 respectively, the 2.10pm RSA Chase looks likely to be a tight race.
A source said: ‘This is the first time a couple have raced against each other at the festival. Races are always high spirited, but I imagine this one will be even more competitive.’
Miss Frost, from Devon, is regarded as the golden girl of racing, having become only the second British woman to win a grade-one championship race.
After a remarkable year in which she has stolen victory after victory, elite trainers believe she could become the greatest female jockey ever.
She met Mr Cobden, from Somerset, when they rode ponies together on Dartmoor as children.
