Look at what happened in 2018 and check back soon as we're already starting to think about 2019.


This is the only Sunday where racing takes place at Cheltenham Racecourse throughout the year. This Sunday holds particular prevalence as we mark the centenary of the Armistice with Gloucestershire & Racing Remember. As well as quality racing, there will be a number of themed activities and commemorative events throughout the day, including the charity for the day Combat Stress. The famous Family Fun area will be back this year with all our family favourites, click here for more information.

The meeting always provides glimpses of future stars and it was no different in the latest renewal of the Sky Bet Supreme Trial Novices’ Hurdle. The runners were well bunched throughout the race with no certain winner appearing. Eventual Cheltenham Festival winner, Summerville Boy took the lead as they climbed the Cheltenham Hill, drawing clear of the rest of the field by 3 lengths but Slate house, under Harry Cobden, fought back to win the race by 3/4 of a length. 

At 10:50, the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars, soldiers dressed in WW1 uniform, will march in contingent in the Parade Ring. At 11:00, the Cheltenham Steam Train will arrive with contingent of Glosters on board, followed by an Act of Remembrance in the Parade Ring at 11:15. At 12:30, there will be an Aerial Combat Display above the Racecourse, followed by a parade on the Racetrack at 1:30. There will be a host of WW1 themed activities inside The Centaur, including a field hospital and a Jet Age Museum. For more information on all the displays, click here

Combat Stress is one of the charity sponsors for Sunday of The November Meeting. Combat Stress is the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health. For almost a century, they've helped former servicemen and women deal with trauma-related mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Today, Combat Stress provide support to veterans from every service and every conflict. They're on a mission to raise awareness that invisible injuries can be just as hard to cope with as physical ones. So when a veteran is having a tough time, Combat Stress are there to help them tackle the past and take on the future.
