Cheltenham Festival 2019 comes to a thrilling conclusion on Friday 15 March with Gold Cup day.
Thursday was an incredible day right here, which saw the winner in the opener added to with a few “hit crossbar” seconds at very long prices, before the incredible 50/1 success of Eglantine Du Seuil consolidated this week into a clear and unassailable profit.
Friday’s card is tough, but there’s some really good potential available. The soft side of good going, and expected showers, could make all the difference though, as there are some very fine margins here. Also, this year’s Gold Cup is a mouthwatering prospect, with a lot of very classy horses, all coming here in some kind of form.
A day to enjoy with a scattering of small stakes each-way efforts for us – and one big NAP.
