The going at Cheltenham is now soft, heavy in places following 14mm of rain overnight.

Not to mention a whole bunch of snow recently! tongue.gif

Even though I live in Cheltenham, I've never actually gone to the festival - though I did once win a sweepstake on the Gold Cup. smile.gif

Disappointing to hear that there is only 5 runners for the Arkle. Again probably due to the soft/heavy ground. It will be the softest since 2013, I think.

Thank you Footpad and Buveur d'Air had them on the nose to win.

A great Champion Hurdle that was, shame to see Faugheen fade back towards the turning for the home straight.

Hoping that the Champion Chase can produce a great battle between Altior and Douvan. Although I have my doubts.

Glad to see Douvan back on his feet following that fall. It could have been a different story, would have been great to see them battle at the finish line.

Gutted to hear about Ruby Walsh out of Cheltenham with a suspected broken leg.

If both horses are on their prime, it could be some race between Un De Sceaux and Cue Card although I think Cue Card only struggle up the hill.

Going off at a tangent :

And they're off... to the lapdancing club at Cheltenham: Male racegoers are being ferried to pop-up strip joints in MINIBUSES as spa town descends into debauchery

Shuttle buses ferrying champagne-fuelled men to doors of pop-up strip clubs
Critics have accused promoters of turning festival into a hotbed of debauchery
Trinity Cheltenham handed out leaflets warning dancers may have be exploited
