Last spring’s feature event – the £60,000 Grade Two Barchester Healthcare Silver Trophy Chase – certainly gave The Festival a run for its money with a spectacular finish by Traffic Fluide.
As the Jump season begins to unwind, so does the Professional season here at Cheltenham.
The racing highlight on the opening day of The April Meeting is the Grade 2 Handicap Chase worth £50,000 as well as some top class hurdle races. It's a chance for racegoers to see their racing favourites before the end of the jumps season and enjoy a quality day out in the springtime sunshine.
