Cheltenham Festival 2023 race card, runners and full schedule

Rachael Blackmore returns to Cheltenham Festival this week looking to create more history after an astounding win in the Gold Cup in 2022.

As well as the Gold Cup, punters will be excited to take in the Champion Hurdle and plenty more Grade 1 races.

And British trainers will be out for revenge after taking a heavy beating to their Irish counterparts last year, conceding the Prestbury Cup 12 months ago with just 10 wins compared to 18 Irish victories.

The festival provides a massive £274m boost to the local economy, a study from the University of Gloucestershire has found.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the 2023 Cheltenham Festival including the full race card and Day 1 schedule for Tueday:
