Thursday – St Patrick’s Day

Thursday 12th March 2020

The third day of racing at the Cheltenham Festival is known as St. Patricks Day and the throngs of traveling racing fans from the Emerald Isle will ensure the Guineas tent is bouncing throughout the entire afternoon. Our experts’ Cheltenham day 3 tips will be trying to find the winner of the Stayers’ Hurdle, the oldest of the four Championship race at Cheltenham. The role of honor for the Stayers’ Hurdle reads like a who’s who of the hurdling game, with greats like Silver Bay, Inglis Drever and Big Buck’s standing out amongst their counterparts, handing over the legacy to A PLUS TARD and PAISLEY PARK, amidst the Cheltenham day three tips

One thing you can guarantee on St. Patrick’s day (Cheltenham races day 3) is an unforgettable atmosphere and the crowd reaches fever-pitch when the runners in the JLT Novices’ Chase are let loose on the track. Once the winner of that opening Grade One has departed the scene, a large field of hurdlers descends upon Prestbury Park to take part in the finale of the Pertemps Handicap Hurdle series. 

Before we reach the Stayers’ Hurdle, a talented field of chasers takes to the track to battle it out in the Ryanair Chase and our Cheltenham day 3 top tips will be out to find the winner. Cheltenham’s unofficial fifth Championship race has been won by many top horses during its short history, with fans’ favourites like Alberta’s Run, Cue Card and Vautour claiming Grade One glory on day three of the Festival. 

The Brown Advisory and Merriebelle Plate are up next before a field of talented young mares battles it out in the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle. The final race on St. Patricks day is the thrilling Kim Muir Challenge Cup – a handicap chase which has provided its winner with a platform from which to launch assaults on the Gold Cup and even the Grand National over subsequent seasons – a prognosis in our Cheltenham day 3 tips you won’t want to miss out on.
