Horse Racing Meetings at Cheltenham

Cheltenham racecourse offers far more than just the Cheltenham Festival. The Open in November is the spiritual start of the jump racing season, and offers just as much quality as the Festival itself. On New Years Day, horse racing for the year gets started off with 7 races, including some Grade 2’s. Finally, the meeting towards the end of April give punters a final chance to see their favourite horses ride before the end of the season in May.

Cheltenham Course Guide

Known as the home of National Hunt Racing and the 2022 Cheltenham Festival Cheltenham Racecourse is located in the heart of the Cotswolds. Normally a clutch venue for any horse or jockey to land a winner, due to the history of the course, if they can do it at the Festival, they’ll receive even more prestige in their career.

The racecourse itself features three different tracks which are used at different parts of the season. However, all are used during the Cheltenham Festival. The Old Course is used during the first two days of the Festival, and during race meetings that occur throughout the NH season. The course itself has two fences in the final stages, and it’s this course that can catch horses out if they’re running too quickly.

The New Course, where the fences have actually been widened by five metres, is used throughout the early part of the NH season and this allows the ground to be saved for the Cheltenham Festival. The key obstacle on this course is the fourth out, and races here tend to have a longer run-in up the famous Cheltenham hill, so stamina is key for all runners.

The remaining track is the Cross Country Course and it is here where classic racing comes to light, as the course includes obstacles with banks, ditches and water jumps. Located in the middle of the other Cheltenham courses, it’s only used on certain occasions throughout the National Hunt season.

Cheltenham Top Trainers

The Cheltenham Festival can potentially account for many of the majority of Grade One winners that trainers can pick up across the season. With up to 35 different races on offer across the week, there are plenty of chances on offer and currently it's Nicky Henderson who tops the rankings with a strike rate of 16% followed by Paul Nicholls and then the Irish trio of Gordon Elliott, Willie Mullins and Henry De Bromhead over chase fences. Over hurdles, it's a similar affair, with Dan Skelton adding his name to the mix alongside Fergal O’Brien.

Cheltenham Top Jockeys

Following the Cheltenham Festival last year, it was Rachel Blackmore who catapulted into the spotlight with wins in key festival races. Over the chase fences, Daryl Jacob and Nico De Boinville are also notable names, with Harry Skelton holding the same renown over hurdles.
