We're just days away from the most prestigious meeting in the National Hunt calendar and the excitement is already building.

We don't yet know if Min, Douvan, Annie Power and Vroum Vroum Mag can get the dominant Willie Mullins off to a perfect start.

We'll have to wait and see if Un De Sceaux can overcome Dodging Bullets in the Queen Mother Champion Chase, or if Thistlecrack can become the leading force in staying hurdles.

What we do know is that the Cheltenham Festival always delivers memorable moments; Arkle completing a hat-trick of Gold Cup wins, Kauto Star regaining his crown in 2009, Sprinter Sacre leaving the competition behind in Champion Chase, Sea Pigeon destroying the field in the Champion Hurdle.

We've seen a lot of truly great champions. What we want to know is - "Who is the #KingOfCheltenham?"

Join us on Twitter @Betfair as we whittle down some of the past champions until we determine the best horse ever to race at Prestbury Park.
