Prepare for cheltenham
Only three days before the start of The Festival™ Presented By Magners at Cheltenham, this fantastic day is all about gathering your friends and getting geared up for the week ahead.
The feature race, the Matchbook Imperial Cup is where future stars often make their mark. It's a great opportunity to experience a piece of Cheltenham if you aren't going and the perfect warm-up if you are. There's lots of entertainment aside from the racing including an Irish band, mini Guinness Village where the live rugby will be shown and plenty more!
Gates open: 11:30

After the racing, don't miss the chance to hear exclusive news and tips from top trainers & jockeys just days before The Festival on The Cheltenham Preview Panel. Confirmed speakers are top trainers, Nicky Henderson, Alan King and 2010 Cheltenham Gold Cup winning jockey, Paddy Brennan, hosted by Mick Fitzgerald.
You can still purchase tickets at Sandown Park from the information point in the main entrance. Tickets are £5 with all profits going to the The Injured Jockeys Fund.
