Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier has been enjoying the action at Cheltenham Festival this week.
Like many professionals in the football game, Matt Le Tissier enjoys a big day out at the races and they don’t come much bigger than the Festival. He’s been watching the racing action from Prestbury Park this week, where he spent Ladies Day hob-nobbing with owners and trainers.
Matt Le Tissier tips: “It’s the Cheltenham Gold Cup today and even if you’re not a racing fan, you need to tune in. It’s a great spectacle with the best of the best battling it out. I was at Cheltenham on Wednesday and, although I didn’t have much luck, I’m hoping that will change with Silviniaco Conti today. He’s unbeaten this season and trainer Paul Nicholls has a great record in the race. He’s 5/1 with William Hill and should give a great run for your money."
