Big Cheltenham Festival Runners
We are in for a real treat again in 2017, that’s for sure. Some of the big Cheltenham Festival runners include Thistlecrack who is Gold Cup bound for the Colin Tizzard stable who could have a four pronged attack in the showpiece event as Cue Card, Native River and Alary could also run. The banker of the festival will no doubt be Douvan who will be long odds on to land the Queen Mother Champion Chase, a race that Willie Mullins has never won before. The Champion Hurdle is a real puzzle as we don’t know what Mullins will run as of yet but it looks a toss up between Annie Power and Faugheen.
Cheltenham Festival Biggest Races
The big race of the week is of course the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Willie Mullins has never won the race and his heartache continued last year with another 2nd place finish in the form of Djakadam. Some amazing horses’ have won the showpiece event and they include Kauto Star, Denman, Best Mate and more recently Coneygree who won the race as a novice. The second biggest race of the week is the Champion Hurdle, a race Willie has dominated in recent years with stars like Annie Power, Faugheen and Hurricane Fly. Our Cheltenham 2017 tips will guide you to the winner of the weeks’ top races.

Ruby Walsh has been the main man at Prestbury Park for a long time, mainly down to his time with UK Champion Trainer Paul Nicholls and Irish Champion Trainer Willie Mullins. He rode an incredible 7 winners in 2016 and has been top jockey at the festival in eight of the last nine years.
