Cheltenham 2023 Preview

Cheltenham 2023 Day 1 Preview


The red carpet will be rolled out for Honeysuckle, as Henry De Bromhead's mare makes what will likely be the final appearance of her glittering career in Tuesday's Championship race. Following the first defeat of her career at Fairyhouse in November, Henry De Bromhead's two-time winner sits a long way adrift of odds-on favourite Constitution Hill - who bolted up in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle on this day 12 months ago - in the 2023 Champion Hurdle betting.

The betting for this year's Supreme is dominated by another winner from the 2022 Cheltenham Festival, Champion Bumper winner Facile Vega, who's two-from-two over hurdles this season. Like Facile Vega, Arkle favourite Jonbon is yet to taste defeat this term, but Nicky Henderson's star will have an army of Willie Mullins runners to fend off in the second of four Grade Ones on Champions' Day.

Marie's Rock will attempt to defend her crown in a typically open renewal of the Mares' Hurdle. Day one viewers will also enjoy the National Hunt Chase and a couple of competitive handicaps, the Ultima Handicap Chase and the Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle.

Cheltenham 2023 Day 2 Preview


Energumene hacked his way through heavy ground to hand Willie Mullins his first victory in the Queen Mother Champion Chase 12 months ago. The defending champion can already be backed at a short price in the 2023 Champion Chase market, where Energumene could square off against stablemate Blue Lord and last year's Arkle winner, Edwardstone.

Paul Nicholls will saddle favourite, Hermes Allen ahead of the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle, before Gaillard Du Mesnil, Gerri Colombe and Thyme Hill square off in the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase. Wednesday's viewers will also enjoy the Champion Bumper, Coral Cup, Grand Annual and the unique Cross Country Chase, where Gordon Elliott's Delta Work will return to defend his crown, having upset Tiger Roll to win the race 12 months ago.

Cheltenham 2023 Day 3 Preview


Flooring Porter will attempt to join the exclusive club of three-time Stayers' Hurdle winners when he returns to Prestbury Park in March. Gavin Cromwell's star has, however, been usurped at the head of the 2023 Stayers' Hurdle odds by Joseph O'Brien's Home By The Lee, who claimed a convincing victory in the Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown in December.

Allaho has made mincemeat of his rivals in the last two editions of the Ryanair Chase. Willie Mullins' star suffered a set-back at the start of the season and remains a doubt for the 2023 Cheltenham Festival, which could open the door for the likes of Fakir D'Oudairies, Blue Lord or two-time Festival winner, Shishkin to claim the Ryanair Crown.

Irish fans will be hoping to see Gordon Elliott's Mighty Potter win the opener on St Patrick's day. Thursday's card also features the Mares' Novices' Hurdle, the Pertemps Final and two handicaps for chasers, the Kim Muir and the Paddy Power Plate.

Cheltenham 2023 Day 4 Preview


The betting for the 2023 Cheltenham Gold Cup is currently dominated by Galopin Des Champs. Last year, Willie Mullins' star fell at the last when victory in the Turner's Novices' Chase was guaranteed. That, however, remains the only blot on Galopin Des Champ's form book and the Gold Cup favourite looked better than ever when winning the John Durkan Memorial Chase on his reappearance.

Galopin Des Champs could be joined by defending champion A Plus Tard, who's struggled for form and fitness this season and currently sits fourth in the 2023 Gold Cup betting. Betfair Chase winner Protektorat, Savills Chase victor, Conflated and King George VI Chase hero, Bravemansgame are pencilled in to run. As is Grand National winner Noble Yeats, who currently sits second in the Gold Cup betting.

Willie Mullins won six of the seven races on Gold Cup day 12 months ago and Ireland's Champion Trainer could be set for a similarly spectacular final day at the 2023 meeting. Willie will saddle the top two in the Triumph Hurdle market, Lossiemouth and Blood Destiny, before throwing Allegorie De Vassy and defending champion, Elimay into the Mares' Chase.

Friday's viewers will take in the Hunter's Chase, known as the Amateurs Gold Cup. The Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle also features on day four, along with the County Hurdle and Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle.

Cheltenham Festival History

In 1860, a new jumps meeting called the Grand National Hunt Meeting took place at Market Harborough. Over the next 40 years, this Festival was moved between different locations around the country. 

In 1910, improvements were made to Prestbury Park racecourse in Gloucestershire. The meeting was staged in Cheltenham for the fifth time, and organisers decided it would remain at Prestbury Park for the foreseeable future.

Thus, the Cheltenham Festival was born and it quickly become one of the most popular sporting events in Britain. 

The oldest Championship race at the Cheltenham Festival is the Stayers’ Hurdle, which was created in 1912. The Cheltenham Gold Cup was initially a lead-up race to the County Hurdle, which was the feature race on day four. In 1924, the Gold Cup was promoted to Grade One status and soon transformed into the most important race of the week.

Three years later, the Champion Hurdle was introduced to the Cheltenham Festival. It wasn’t until 1957 that the Champion Chase was added to the schedule.

For much of its existence, the Cheltenham Festival was a three-day event, kicking off on Wednesday before culminating on the Friday. In 2005, organisers added a fourth day to the schedule. Although there has been talk of adding a fifth day in recent years, the Cheltenham Festival remains a four-day meeting, each featuring a seven-strong racecard.

In 1943 and 1944, the Cheltenham Festival was cancelled due to World War II. In 2001, the national foot-and-mouth disease crisis saw the meeting cancelled for the first time since 1944.

All of National Hunt racing’s most famous names have won during the Cheltenham Festival. The leading trainer is Willie Mullins, who leapt to the head of a list which includes Nicky Henderson, Paul Nicholls and Martin Pipe when he claimed the Top Trainer prize for the sixth time in 2019.

Ruby Walsh is the most successful jockey in the history of the Cheltenham Festival, having won at the meeting on 32 occasions during his illustrious career. AP McCoy sits second on the list, ahead of Barry Geraghty, and Richard Johnson.

Willie Mullins’ Quevega holds the record for most wins by a horse at the Cheltenham Festival, having won the Mares’ Hurdle for six years in succession between 2009 and 2014.

The previous record was held by Golden Miller, who had won the Gold Cup five years in a row in the 1930s. Two-time Grand National winner, Tiger Roll has won four Cheltenham Festival races during his career so far, securing wins in the Triumph Hurdle, the National Hunt Chase and two victories in the Cross Country Chase.

At the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, a Grade Two Mares’ Chase will be introduced to the day two schedule. There’s currently been no confirmation as to which race will be taken out, but it’s thought that the Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle will be the one to make way for this feature chase for mares.
