The going on day two of The November Meeting, Paddy Power Day, is currently:
Good to Soft
Cheltenham’s Clerk of the Course Simon Claisse reported: “It was dry overnight and the going on the Chase and Hurdle courses remains Good to Soft.
“However, the forecast is for rain throughout the day and we do expect ground conditions to change to Soft before racing starts at 12.30pm.
“There are five live races in ITV, starting at 1.30pm, and all the action can be seen live on Racing TV. You can catch up with all the latest information on the racing hub on our website.
“We are looking forward to what promises to be a cracking afternoon of racing with the feature race, the Paddy Power Gold Cup, due off at 2.15pm.”
The hurdle course has been realigned in the home straight away from the stands' side rail between the bend and the last hurdle to avoid an area of false ground.
Hurdle bends dolled out 9 yards (except the home turn at 2 yards), adding 44 yards per circuit to races over 2m and 3m, and 72 yards for races over 2½m. All chase bends dolled out 7 yards, adding 44 yards to each circuit for races over 2m and 3m and 66 yards for races over 2½m.
Distances altered as follows:
Race 1 plus 72 yards
Race 2 plus 88 yards
Race 3 plus 44 yards
Race 4 plus 66 yards

Race 6 plus 72 yards
