Day Three of The Festival™ returned on Thursday 18 March 2021 behind closed doors.


As the action moved to the New Course on Day Three of The Festival™ supporting WellChild at Cheltenham there was yet more drama and some scintillating front-running performances.


Brilliant Rachael Blackmore landed her fourth Grade One race of the week, Willie Mullins proved his team are just as formidable as we thought they would be and there was a big upset in the first race.
