The exciting culmination of what has been a memorable Cheltenham Festival has arrived and another thrilling card lies in wait.
Top of the bill without question is the Gold Cup as Rachael Blackmore looks to repeat last year’s historic win on A Plus Tard - although she will face serious competition from the likes of Irish Gold Cup winner Galopin Des Champs, King George VI Chase winner Bravemansgame and last year’s runner-up Minella Indo.
Elsewhere on Friday, Corbetts Cross is highly-fancied to take the Albert Bartlett’s Novices Hurdle and Lossiemouth is the strong favourite to take the honours in the JCB Triumph Hurdle, which is the first race of the day.
