WHAT HAPPENED ON THE APRIL MEETING WEDNESDAY?

The racing highlight on the opening day of The April Meeting was Mister Whitaker for trainer Mick Channon and jockey Jonathan Burke gave a gutsy performance to hold off the challenge from Got Away in the feature race of the day The Cure Parkinson’s & Hambo Foundation Silver Trophy Chase.

 

As the Jump season begins to unwind, so does the Professional season here at Cheltenham.

The April Meeting is 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.
