Sir Anthony McCoy, rider of a record 4,357 winners and Brand Ambassador for Close Brothers, gives his thoughts on the Cheltenham Festival and what we can expect to see on the final day of racing.
Check in daily for updates.
Jockeys, trainers and fans can’t help but be excited at this time of year. The Cheltenham Festival is an amazing event, even if you don’t follow horse racing closely. It’s one of the biggest dates in the racing calendar, and the atmosphere is unlike anything else you can experience.
Looking ahead to the racing, so much will depend on the going this week, which is what makes Cheltenham so hard to predict. It can start out soft on Tuesday and then harden up by the end of the week – a key part of what makes the festival such a challenge for jockeys and trainers, and such a spectacle to watch.
