What is The Open at Cheltenham Racecourse
For those of you who may be new to the open here’s a brief outline of what to expect from the jewel in the national hunt crown.
A major highlight of the British Racing Calendar, with three days of racing magic, 80 trade stands in the open shopping village, a great atmosphere in the grandstands, bars and restaurants and a historic race; the Betvictor Gold Cup.
After the world renowned Cheltenham Festival, this is probably the biggest event at famous racecourse; especial jump fans.
Countryside Day has a unique country fair atmosphere and a range of displays and demonstrations, covering many equine and other country pursuits. From gun dog displays in the paddock before racing, to the local hunt charging across the course during the afternoon.
Gold Cup Day
This day is the highlight of the first half of the Jump racing season, featuring the The Gold Cup; which is a Grade 3 National Hunt chase for horses aged four years or older. In previous years The Gold Cup has been sponsored by Paddy Power, but currently Betvictor are headline sponsors. It is run at Cheltenham over a distance of about 2 miles and 4½ furlongs, with fifteen fences to be jumped.
The Open Sunday
Another cracking six-race card on a day that is very popular with families and racing enthusiasts alike. This is the only Sunday where racing takes place at Cheltenham throughout the year, so a great opportunity to get the children along to enjoy a day out.

Unlike sources such as Kodi, there’s never any issues getting a stream or with poor pictures and buffering.
