History was made in the 2020 Cheltenham Gold Cup, when racegoers roared home Al Boum Photo in the feature race for the second consecutive year under Paul Townend for trainer Willie Mullins. Will he take the 2021 renewal? 

 

Al Boum Photo became the first back-to-back winner of the G1 Cheltenham Gold Cup since Best Mate (2002, 2003 & 2004). 

 
We continue to follow Government guidance and look forward to welcoming spectators when it is safe to do so. If you are interested in hearing from us about any spectator opportunities that may arise for The Festival 2021 then please sign up here
