Cheltenham Festival Race Results

Below are the 2023 results currently being displayed

Cheltenham Day Four (Friday) Results

JCB Triumph Hurdle – Results

1st Vauban 6/4 (F)
2nd Fil Dor 11/2
3rd Pied Piper 7/2

Race Summary:

Vauban was just too good for the Gordon Elliot pair and looks like a serious prospect going forward for trainer Willie Mullins. Travelling much the best up the Cheltenham hill, the four-year-old simply had too many gears for his rivals and is certainly a 2023 Champion Hurdle contender going forward.

County Hurdle – Results

1st State Man 11/4 (F)
2nd First Street 16/1
3rd Colonel Mustard 13/2
4th West Cork 13/2

Race Summary:

Willie Mullins and Paul Townend teamed up again with the impressive and well-handicapped State Man, who appeared to be a Graded horse running in a handicap. Making smooth headway on the stands side rail, State Man kicked clear under Paul Townend and was much the best. Willie Mullins’ charge could make up into a very smart prospect indeed.

Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle – Results

1st The Nice Guy  18/1
2nd Minella Cocooner 9/2
3rd Bardenstown Lad 20/1

Race Summary:

A 1-2 for trainer Willie Mullins and despite Minella Cocooner being sent off a well supported 9/2 shot, it was stablemate and unbeaten seven-year-old The Nice Guy who took the Grade 1 prize with a comfortable victory by 5l.

Cheltenham Gold Cup – Results

1st A Plus Tard 3/1 (F)
2nd Minella Indo 7/1
3rd Protektorat 10/1

Race Summary:

Tables were turned from last season in the showpiece event as A Plus Tard gained revenge on stablemate Minella Indo with an authoritative success under jockey Rachael Blackmore. Minella Indo had set sail for home a long way from the finish turning for home, but the Cheveley Park owned eight-year-old always had his stablemate in sight and readily overhauled him to run out a 15l winner at the line.

Hunter Chase – Results

1st Billaway 13/8 (F)
2nd Winged Leader 9/2
3rd Mighty Stowaway 33/1

Race Summary:

A sensational effort from Billaway who stormed up the famous Cheltenham hill to snatch victory away from Winged Leader who gave it his all in second. A ninth winner overall for trainer Willie Mullins on the week.

Paddy Power Mares Chase – Results

1st Elimay 9/4
2nd Pink Legend 33/1
3rd Scarlet And Dove 28/1

Race Summary:

Last year’s second Elimay went one place better and gave jockey Patrick Mullins a quickfire double after Billaway’s earlier success. The talented grey mare stayed on resolutely in between horses to get up in the shadows of the post and give Willie Mullins a remarkable tenth winner of the Festival in the week.

Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle – Results

1st Banbridge 12/1
2nd Cobblers Dream 12/1
3rd Hollow Games 9/2
4th Freedom To Dream 20/1

Race Summary:

The concluding race of the 2023 Festival went the way of Joseph O’Brien’s Banbridge who had enough in the locker to see off the strong travelling Cobblers Dream for trainer Ben Case. The final score across the week between Britain and Ireland was 18-10 in the Irish runner’s favour.

Cheltenham Day Three (Thursday) Results

Marsh Novices’ Chase – Results

1st Bob Olinger 6/5
2nd Busselton 50/1
3rd El Barra

Race Results Summary:

Just the four went to post and the expected matchup between Galopin Des Champs and Bob Olinger was heading in a very one-sided argument, as Willie Mullins’ exceptional novice held a commanding lead before slipping on landing after the final flight. That allowed the toiling Bob Olinger to pick up the pieces and maintain his unbeaten start over the larger obstacles.

Pertemps Network Final  – Results

1st Third Wind 25/1
2nd Alaphilippe 11/2 (JF)
3rd Mill Green 33/1
4th Winter Fog 11/2 (JF)

Race Results Summary:

A rare 1-2-3 for the home team in the Pertemps Network Final, with Hughie Morrison’s Third Wind proving too strong in the closing stages to deny the late charge from the well supported Alaphilippe.

Ryanair Chase – Results

1st Allaho 4/7 (F)
2nd Janidil 12/1
3rd Eldorado Allen 14/1

Race Results Summary:

Simply a one-horse race as Allaho stamped his authority in the Ryanair. Winner of the race 12 months ago, Willie Mullins’ charge had an easy time of things at the head of affairs and soon had his rivals toiling with a smart round of jumping, running out a commanding 14l winner at the line.

Stayers’ Hurdle – Results

1st Flooring Porter  4/1
2nd Thyme Hill 11/2
3rd Paisley Park 17/2

Race Results Summary:

A fantastic front running ride from Danny Mullins gave Flooring Porter back to back wins in the Thursday feature contest. Facing a challenge from British pair Thyme Hill and Paisley Park, Gavin Cromwell’s smart stayer asserted in the closing stages and comfortably held on to win by just over two lengths.

Plate Handicap Chase – Results

1st Coole Cody 22/1
2nd Imperial Alacazar 7/2 (F)
3rd Spiritofthegames 12/1
4th Stolen Silver 18/1

Race Results Summary:

A remarkable 1-2-3-4 for team GB and it was Evan Williams’ resilient Coole Cody who stayed on willingly in the closing stages to win going away from Fergal O’Brien’s well-supported market leader.

Mares’ Novice Hurdle – Results

1st Love Envoi  15/2
2nd Ahorsewithnoname 50/1
3rd Grangee 13/2

Race Results Summary:

Love Envoi recorded a fantastic success for the Noel Fehily Racing Club and provided trainer Harry Fry with a famous Festival winner. Racing prominently, the six-year-old jumped fluently from the offset and despite facing a challenge climbing the hill, Love envoi stayed on well under jockey Jonny Burke to see off Ahorsewithnoname and maintain her unbeaten record.

Kim Muir Handicap Chase – Results

1st Chambard 40/1
2nd Mister Coffey 5/1 (JF)
3rd Didero Vallis 66/1
4th Fakir D’alene 33/1

Race Results Summary:

A 1-3 for trainer Venetia Williams and yet another front running winner on Day 3, the ten-year-old Chambard stayed on determinedly in the closing stages to see off the challenge of Nicky Henderson’s Mister Coffey who travelled like the likeliest winner before flattering to deceive under jockey Sam Waley-Cohen.

Cheltenham Day Two (Wednesday) Results

Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle – Results

1st Sir Gerhard 8/11F
2nd Three Stripe Life 8/1
3rd Whatdeawant 18/1

Race Results Summary:

Ireland was the first to strike on day 2 as Sir Gerhard showed his class, readily coming clear of nearest pursuer Three Stripe life to win for trainer Willie Mullins and jockey Paul Townend. The seven-year-old was neat and fluent over his obstacles and never looked in any danger in the attritional conditions. An exciting prospect, Willie Mullins’ charge is one to keep firmly on side.

Brown Advisory Novice Chase – Results

1st L’Homme Presse 9/4F
2nd Ahoy Senor 4/1
3rd Gaillard Du Mesnil 11/1

Race Results Summary:

The torrential rain had seen unbeaten novice Bravemansgame withdrawn beforehand, but Paul Nicholls’ star may have been up against it regardless as L’Homme Presse was foot perfect for Venetia Williams and Charlie Deutsch. Jumping big and boldly, the seven-year-old was far too good for Ahoy Senor up the Cheltenham hill and never gave favourite backers anything to worry about.

Coral Cup – Results

1st Commander Of Fleet 50/1
2nd Fastorslow 18/1
3rd Ashdale Bob 14/1
4th Camprond 10/1

Race Results Summary:

Gordon Elliot is renowned for his tremendous Festival record with his handicappers, but many didn’t see Commander Of Fleet obliging at long odds in the colours of owners Gigginstown. Facing a strong challenge from Fastorslow, the eight-year-old battled on tenaciously under pressure to prevail by a short head after making an error over the final flight.

The Champion Chase – Results

1st Energumene 5/2
2nd Funambule Sivola 40/1
3rd Envoi Allen

Race Results Summary:

The Champion Chase didn’t quite live up to expectations as warm favourite Shishkin was forced to pull up early after failing to handle the testing surface at Prestbury Park. With the market leader out of the contest, Energumene was left with a simple task especially after stablemate Chacun Pour Soi also departed. However, Willie Mullins’ star two-miler still displayed a stunning performance to run out a ready winner and give the trainer a first win in the famous two-mile event.

The Cross-Country Chase – Results

1st Delta Work 5/2F
2nd Tiger Roll 3/1
3rd Plan Of Attack 25/1

Race Results Summary:

The fairytale finish just wasn’t meant to be for Tiger Roll, who went down fighting but ultimately gave way in the closing stages to talented stablemate Delta Work who was having his first try at the Cross Country circuit and highlighted himself as the new kid on the block in this sphere with a smart winning effort. Although not the result many punters wanted, the dual Grand National winner bowed out on the biggest stage and will forever be remembered in Festival history.

Grand Annual Chase – Results

1st Global Citizen 28/1
2nd Andy Dufresne 100/30F
3rd Frero Banbou 6/1
4th Editeur Du Gite 15/2

Race Results Summary:

Willoughby Court and Le Breuil provided trainer Ben Pauling with previous Festival glory and Global Citizen completed the hat-trick on day 2 with a smart front running performance. Unfancied in the betting, the ten-year-old was returning to fences for the first time since December 2020 and stayed on dourly in the gruelling conditions to see off the well-backed favourite, Andy Dufresne.

The Champion Bumper – Results

1st Facile Vega 15/8F
2nd American Mike 5/2
3rd James’s Gate 16/1
3rd Seabank Bistro 18/1

Race Results Summary:

The Champion Bumper didn’t disappoint as Facile Vega justified favouritism for trainer Willie Mullins and ran out an impressive winner ahead of fellow talented Irish runner, American Mike. Despite the heavy underfoot surface, Facile Vega made notable headway turning for home before powering clear and quickening well in the conditions to provide trainer Willie Mullins with his twelfth victory in the concluding day 2 contest.

Cheltenham Day One (Tuesday) Results

The Supreme Novices’ Hurdle – Results

1st Constitution Hill 9/4J
2nd Jonbon 5/1
3rd Kilcruit 6/1

Race Results Summary:

The curtain-raiser certainly didn’t disappoint as Constitution Hill turned the seemingly red-hot Supreme into a procession, travelling ominously well under Nico de Boinville before powering clear of the toiling field to win by a staggering 22l. Nicky Henderson’s imposing novice was simply in another league to his eight rivals and certainly appears another hugely talented individual for the master at Seven Barrows.

The Arkle Chase – Results

1st Edwardstone 5/2F
2nd Gabynako 25/1
3rd Blue Lord 4/1

Race Results Summary:

It was soon 2-0 to the home team as Edwardstone was foot perfect in the Arkle Chase, staying on best of all up the famous hill to give jockey Tom Cannon his first-ever Cheltenham winner. Despite taking a bump two from the finish, Alan King’s charge was too strong for his ten rivals and in victory took his chasing record to five from six.

The Ultima Handicap Chase – Results

1st Corach Rambler 10/1
2nd Gericault Roque 9/1
3rd Oscar Elite 22/1
4th Tea Clipper 12/1

Race Results Summary:

Arguably the best ride on day 1 came from jockey Derek Fox who guided Corach Rambler home in the fiercely competitive Ultima Handicap Chase. Held up off the pace, the eight-year-old was still left with plenty to do turning for home but Lucinda Russell’s charge soon reached top gear and fairly sprinted up the famous Cheltenham Hill to lead in the final closing stages, in what was a simply remarkable performance.

The Champion Hurdle – Results

1st Honeysuckle 8/11F
2nd Epatante 16/1
3rd Zanahiyr 28/1

Race Results Summary:

Superstar mare Honeysuckle didn’t let down favourite backers in the opening day feature Champion Hurdle, quickening away smartly on the climb to the finish to see off the challenge of former champion Epatante. Henry De Bromhead’s mare stretched her unbeaten record to 15 from 15 and was treated to rapturous applause from the thousands of spectators in attendance as she made her way into the winner’s enclosure.

The Mares’ Hurdle – Results

1st Marie’s Rock 18/1
2nd Queens Brook 4/1
3rd Mrs Milner 14/1

Race Results Summary:

Nicky Henderson was keen on the chances of Marie’s Rock before the mares’ hurdle and the seven-year-old didn’t disappoint, coming with a strong burst of pace to overhaul Gordon Elliot’s Queens Brook in the final strides and give team Britain their fourth win on the opening day.

Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle – Results

1st Brazil 10/1
2nd Gaelic Warrior 13/8F
3rd Bell Ex One 28/1
4th HMS Seahorse 8/1

Race Results Summary:

Inexperience ultimately cost the well supported Gaelic Warrior from exploiting an opening mark of 129, with his wayward jumping proving costly as Brazil stayed on best of all for jockey Mark Walsh and trainer Padraig Roche to win by a short head.

National Hunt Chase – Results

1st Stattler 2/1
2nd Run Wild Fred 15/8F
3rd Vanillier

Race Results Summary:

Only six runners took their chance in the concluding National Hunt Chase and despite the poor turnout, Stattler delivered a smart performance for Willie Mullins and son Patrick, jumping superbly well all the way around before staying on best of all to readily go clear of race favourite Run Wild Fred.
