Good, Good to Soft in places
GoingStick reading 7.2 at 5.00am today (7.0 at 5.30am yesterday, 6.8 at 6.00am on Friday)
Chase bends have been dolled out six yards, adding 38 yards to each circuit.
Hurdle bends have been dolled out 11 yards, adding 69 yards to races over two miles and 104 yards to the race over two miles and five furlongs.
Today's forecast is sunny, dry and bright, with temperatures of nine degrees Celsius.
Cheltenham Clerk of the Course and Regional Head of Racing Simon Claisse commented: "Saturday was a day of thrills and spills at Prestbury Park in front of a crowd of over 32,000 and what an afternoon it was, with Baron Alco winning the BetVictor Gold Cup for the Moore family and doubles for trainers Paul Nicholls and Ian Williams.
"As expected, it has been dry overnight and the ground has dried out a little. It is now predominantly Good all round, although there is a little bit of Good to Soft just coming down the hill.
"Today features a host of races over two miles, including the Unibet Greatwood Handicap Hurdle. Will Nicky Henderson's Verdana Blue follow up her win in the Unibet Elite Hurdle last weekend at Wincanton and have a quick-fire double? We also have a G2 novices' chase and a G2 novices' hurdle over two miles, plus the G2 Schloer Chase, which is often a pointer to the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase at The Festival presented by Magners.
"Today we also mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, with Gloucestershire and Racing Remembers staging a host of events, beginning at 10.30am when the gates open.
"The forecast is for a dry, bright and sunny day. We are looking forward to a cracking afternoon's racing."
