Day One of the Festival, known as Champion Day, is for many Festival goers, the best day of Cheltenham week. The famous Cheltenham roar as the tape goes up on the first race of the Festival, the Supreme Novices' Hurdle is unsurpassed in the racing world. The main race of the day is the Champion Hurdle, a test of speed and stamina for the best hurdlers that UK and Ireland have to offer.

Wednesday is Ladies Day at the Cheltenham Festival and with four Grade 1 races there is some mouthwatering racing on day 2 at Prestbury Park. Won in the past by the likes of Flyinbolt, Crisp, Viking Flagship, Moscow Flyer and Master Minded, the Queen Mother Champion Chase is the 2 mile championship for the best chasers in the land. In what could be the race of the meeting.

Until 2005 the Cheltenham Festival was held over three days, and the Stayers Hurdle was second fiddle to the Gold Cup on Thursday. When the Festival was expanded to four days, the World Hurdle as it was renamed, became the feature race of the third day of the Festival, now celebrated at St Patrick's day for the massive Irish following that come to Cheltenham every year. Last year, More Of That’s unbeaten season culminated in a battling World Hurdle victory over Annie Power.

After three scintillating days of action it's Gold Cup day at Cheltenham, with the feature race of the whole Festival highlighting a fantastic day's racing. The Gold Cup is a true test of stamina and class, with the winner joining an illustrious roll of honour including Golden Miller, Dawn Run, Best Mate, Denman, Kauto Star and the greatest of them all, Himself, Arkle. Arkle won the Gold Cup from 1964-66 and has never been surpassed despite the best efforts of some great horses.
