Trainer Christy Roche says he will remember Festival winner Like-A-Butterfly as "a bit special" following her death from colic.

The mare won 12 of her 17 races, including the 2002 Supreme Novices' Hurdle at the Festival.

Roche said: "She was a bit special. I can't think of another mare who has won a Grade One bumper, a Grade One over hurdles and a Grade One chase."
