Event Details

Cheltenham Racecourse 10/03/2015 | 10:30

The first day of The Festival features the most important hurdle race of the season, the Stan James Champion Hurdle. This year saw a strong performance from Jezki, trained in Ireland by Jessica Harrington, who powered up the hill win by a neck from My Tent Or Yours, also owned by JP McManus.

Six other cracking races and the unique first day atmosphere make this one of the sporting highlights of the year. Included is the newly upgraded Grade 1 OLBG Mares’ Hurdle, won for the last six years by Quevega, who has now retired. Who will take Quevega’s crown?

Guinness Grandstand Info
Due to the ongoing redevelopment works at Cheltenham, the size and position of the Guinness Grandstand will be altered for The Festival in 2015.

All of the seats will allow viewing of the action during the race as the horses are on the main part of the course, but some will have limited view of the run up the hill to the finishing line. We do not know which seats of the Guinness grandstand this will affect, but estimate it will be those at the top left, as you stand facing the seating.

As in previous years, there will be a big screen in front of the Guinness Grandstand to watch all the racing, in addition to the live action.

The Guinness Grandstand will be reduced in size, but still be positioned opposite the final fence. It will be beyond the Arkle Stand and, as usual, be situated between the Guinness Village and the course.
