Featuring The Boodles Cheltenham Gold Cup, the blue riband race. The pre-race tension, the exhilaration of the race and jubilations of the aftermath. You will never see or experience anything quite like it, as whatever the result, every year it is different.

Gold Cup winner two-time Galopin Des Champs. The great race, which celebrated it’s centenary in 2024, was won by jockey Paul Townend for a record-equalling fourth time after his previous successes on Al Boum Photo (2019, 2020) and Galopin Des Champs (2023).

Don’t miss out on the Cheltenham Festival, records will be broken, history will be made and dreams will come true!
