Cheltenham Clerk of the Course and Regional Head of Racing Simon Claisse commented: "It is a brighter day for day two of The November Meeting at Cheltenham Racecourse, with a little bit of sun peeking through the top of Cleeve Hill.
 
"We had a fantastic day yesterday, with 61 runners and Josies Orders winning his fourth Cross Country race at Cheltenham and Grand National winner Tiger Roll running well to finish fourth in the same race. Nigel Twiston-Davies had a great winner with Count Meribel in the Steel Plate & Sections Novices' Chase, a race he won previously with subsequent Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Imperial Commander.
 
"There are 90 declarations today for a card that kicks off at 12.40pm. There have been six future Festival winners on this day in the last four years. It looks a tremendously open BetVictor Gold Cup, with the likes of Rather Be, Mister Whitaker and Kalondra all vying for favouritism.
 
"Ground conditions are unlikely to be much different from yesterday. It has been dry and the forecast is for a lovely sunny day with temperatures of nine or 10 degrees Celsius.
 
"The going is currently Good, Good to Soft in places."
