The Cheltenham Gold Cup is a Class A Grade 1 chase run over three miles and about two and a half furlongs. It is open to horses aged five years old and upwards and takes place on the new course at Cheltenham 3:30pm on Friday 13th March.  

If the Festival is the most prestigious event in the National Hunt calendar, then the Gold Cup which features in all Cheltenham day 4 tips, has to be the most prestigious race. Whilst it used to be considered little more than a trial for the Grand National, as the importance of the Festival has grown, so has the significance of this race. It is now the event that everyone wants to win.

While there are six surrounding races on Friday at the Cheltenham Festival, the Gold Cup is what all attendees flock to Prestbury Park to watch on day four. Nothing in the world of horse racing can match the mystique and prestige of the Gold Cup, with the names of Golden Miller, Arkle, Best Mate and Kauto Star glistening on the famous trophy. 

Any chaser who is good enough to claim victory in the Cheltenham Gold Cup will hand their connections the biggest prize in National Hunt racing and guarantee themselves a place in the pantheon of horse racing’s greats.
