When is the Cheltenham Gold Cup?

The Gold Cup is the blue riband event at Cheltenham, always taking place on the last day of the Festival and featuring some of the best horses around. This year’s Gold Cup takes place on Friday March 17 and is sure to be another great occasion.

Who are the runners in the Cheltenham Gold Cup?

Runners will be confirmed during Festival week, but expect the likes of Cue Card, Native River and Djakadam to be leading contenders in the Gold Cup betting. Their chances received a boost ahead of the Festival when antepost favourite Thistlecrack was forced to withdraw from the race due to injury.
