When Is This Year’s Cheltenham Festival?
The 2017 Cheltenham Festival starts on March 14th, 2017 and ends on March 17th, 2017 at the recently revamped Cheltenham Racecourse at Prestbury Park.
The Cheltenham Festival is without a doubt the pinnacle of the National Hunt horse racing calendar and the feature races are the four major championships; the Gold Cup, Champion Chase, World Hurdle and Champion Hurdle. The 2017 Cheltenham Festival will feature the best horses, jockeys and trainers in jumps racing across a 4 day extravaganza.
Day 1 or Champion Day will feature the world-famous ‘Cheltenham Roar’ as punters and racegoers cheer the tapes rising for the first race on an action packed Tuesday. The opening day races include the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, Arkle Challenge Trophy, Festival Trophy Handicap Chase, David Nicholson Mares’ Hurdle, National Hunt Chase Challenge Cup and Centenary Novices’ Handicap Chase with the feature race being the Grade 1 Champion Hurdle. 2016 winner Annie Power, along with stablemate Faugheen look set to be the big talking horses on the day.
Day 2 at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival is traditionally Ladies Day, where it is just as important to be well dressed as it is to study the racing form! The Baring Bingham Novices’ Hurdle gets the action underway followed by the RSA Chase, Queen Mother Champion Chase, Coral Cup, Cross Country Handicap Chase, Fred Winter Juvenile Novices’ Handicap Hurdle and Champion Bumper.
The feature Queen Mother Champion Chase looks at the mercy of Willie Mullins’ Douvan, who is odds-on to win after a sensational novice chase campaign which saw him retain his unbeaten run; landing the Arkle in the process. Ruby Walsh looks bombproof in the Top Jockey market as usual, given the overwhelming quality of rides he gets from the all-powerful Mullins yard.
Day 3 at Cheltenham, which just happens to be St Patrick’s Day, means that the Irish will be out in force to bet, drink and enjoy the racing. Guinness will be flowing and the Irish connections will be hoping to have a good day’s racing which begins with the JLT Novices’ Chase and also features the Pertemps Final, Ryanair Chase, Byrne Group Plate and Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup.
The highlight however, is the World Hurdle which was dominated by the Paul Nicholls-trained Big Bucks with four victories in a row between 2009 and 2012. Solwit won the 2013 renewal of the 3 mile Grade 1 contest with More Of That coming out on top in 2014, Cole Harden in 2015 and the mighty Thistlecrack last year. It is a contest which has a long line of legendary stayers down the years and the 2017 Ryanair World Hurdle is sure to throw up another top class affair.
Cheltenham Gold Cup Day is Day 4, the final day of the 2017 Cheltenham Festival and features the Triumph Hurdle, Vincent O’Brien County Handicap Hurdle, Spa Novices’ Hurdle, Cheltenham Gold Cup, Foxhunter Chase, Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle and Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Chase.
The newly named Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup is widely considered to be the climax of the entire jumps racing season and as such has been won down the years by famous horses such as Arkle, L’Escargot, Desert Orchid, Best Mate, Kauto Star and Denman.
Cheltenham 2016 Results
In 2016, Gordon Elliott won the race for the first time with his star Don Cossack, who is in a race against the clock to recover from injury on time to defend his crown.
Betfair Chase winner Cue Card was so unlucky to fall in the race last year and will be gunning for redemption, while 2015 Gold Cup winner Coneygree is also on the comeback trail. The race is shaping up to be a staying chase of outstanding quality and as race fans we can only hope the chief protagonists remain injury free in their preparations for the Cheltenham Festival 2017.
