Latest going news at the end of BetVictor Gold Cup Day

Press Release 18th November 2017 Cheltenham

After a wet but thrilling BetVictor Gold Cup Day, Simon Claisse, Cheltenham's clerk of the course, said: "We had far more rain than anticipated - 10-12 millimetres, depending on where you are on the site, in a relatively short period of time. Understandably, conditions got more testing during the day.
"We changed the ground after race four from Soft, Good to Soft in places to Soft, Heavy in places.
"It was a fantastic day's racing and a wonderful BetVictor Gold Cup. It was super for the 'locals' - Nigel Twiston-Davies and Tom Bellamy - to win it with Splash Of Ginge.
"The weather forecast now for tonight is dry with no frost forecast, and we expect a dry day tomorrow."
Today's attendance at Cheltenham came to 30,634, while 31,942 passed through the turnstiles last year.
