Cheltenham has arrived! Now all we need to do is get comfortable, sit back and enjoy four days of high quality racing action.
Punters have enjoyed a successful start to the week with the hotly-tipped Douvan, Annie Power and Vroum Vroum Mag all racing to victory on day one.
We’re all looking forward to the Gold Cup on Friday but there is plenty more to look forward to as the biggest names in racing take to Prestbury Park.
Here’s a quick look at everything you need to know to enjoy the festival.
Where can I watch the action?
For those not lucky enough to make it along to the course, Channel 4 will be showing the first five races each day – the races at 1.30pm, 2.10pm, 2.50pm, 3.30pm and 4.10pm.
Racing UK will show all of the races, including the final two that will not be on Channel 4.
What is the main event?
The festival features four days of high quality action but one of the highlights is undoubtedly the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
When is the Gold Cup?
The race will take place on the final day of festival, on Friday, March 18 at 3.30pm on Friday March 18.
Last year the novice Coneygree won the Gold Cup.
Are tickets still available?
