By Racenews

The going for day three of The November Meeting at Cheltenham, Sunday 15 November, is:


Chase Course: Soft


Hurdle Course: Soft, Heavy in places


There was a total of seven millimetres of rain overnight. Further showers are forecast today.


Simon Claisse, Clerk of the Course at Cheltenham, said: “The rain that started yesterday afternoon persisted well into the evening, although it has now been dry since midnight.


“The going on the Chase Course remains Soft but the Hurdle Course is now Soft, Heavy in places.


“We have six races today, starting at 1.15pm. Races two to five are live on ITV and all of the action is live on Racing TV. The feature race is at 3.00pm, the Unibet Greatwood Handicap Hurdle, with the locally-trained Ballyandy at the top of the weights.”
