The big race of the day is undoubtedly the Queen Mother Champion Chase, which is sure to be another brilliant run following the epic encounter in it at last year’s Cheltenham. The race itself is why the day has since been coined as ‘Ladies Day’ – similarly to the Ascot Finale Day.

Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle

Cheltenham day 2 comes out of the gates with the Ballymore Novice’s Hurdle, this Grade 1 race is run over 2miles and 5 furlong by horses 4 years plus. Over that distance there are ten hurdles to navigate over the run, but, it is always a great start to get the Cheltenham 2019 day 2 card underway.

The race, and the day, start at 13.30 so there is plenty of time to start your betting on Cheltenham day 2 early!

Last year it was all eyes on the Irish sensation Samcro, trained by Gordon Elliott, who kindly delivered to the masses with an equally as sensational run. He led all the way and was able to hold off another favourite for this, Black Ops, and finished comfortably with three quarter lengths to spare coming down the final stretch and over the line.

RSA Steeple Chase

Known as a stern test for novice chasers, this 3 mile ½ furlong run is for horses aged 5, and older, in this Grade 1 field of runners. With a whopping 19 fences to jump, jockey and horse alike must work in tandem to make sure a small mistake doesn’t rule them out in this unforgiving race. Following on from the Ballymore Novice’s Hurdle this race is ran at 14.10.

Last year, Presenting Percy came through with a cunning game-plan to wait his turn to attack the frontrunners, before galloping to victory by seven lengths. In a field full of Emerald Isle talent, this performance was regarded by many as one of the best of 2018’s National Hunt.

Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle

The first of the handicap races on Cheltenham Wednesday is the Grade 3 Coral Cup which is the second of this hour, at 14.50. Run over the distance of 2 miles 5 furlong, with 10 fences to hurdle over the horses, aged four and over, must be at their best to stand a chance of winning this prestigious race. Interestingly, no horse has ever won this outing in consecutive years.

Last year’s victor in this was jockeyed by a late replacement, Mark Walsh, following Ruby Walsh’s injury in the previous run and a shake-up of jockeys in this outing. Walsh was able to run Bleu Berry who was at a SP of 20-1 to victory over several favourites. Coming from the back of the field, he was able to hold off the late drama with Topofthegame, who seemed destined for victory, and won by a small margin. Starting price favourite William Henry was only able to muster a fourth-place finish in this competitive field of runners.

Betway Queen Mother Champion Steeple Chase

It’s the jewel in the crown of Cheltenham Ladies Day, the Queen Mother Champion Steeple Chase at 15:30! Open to horses of five years, and older, this Grade 1 outing is the race not to be missed from Cheltenham Wednesday racecards! This Grade 1 outing is open to horses of five years old, and older, and is run over the distance of 1 mile 7 furlongs with twelve fences to clear.

It is a highlight of the medium distance National Hunt racing calendar and was given its name in honour of recognising the Queen Mothers 80th birthday, along with her huge support of jump racing. As one of the highlights of the jump racing schedule, it is a befitting name.

The last seven years have seen four Nicky Henderson horses run to victory, so if you’re looking for a wise pick in this one, keep an eye on the Cheltenham Wednesday runners declared in this one!

Last year’s encounter showcased a scintillating run from Nicky Henderson’s “King of Two Milers”, Altior, who benefited from a fall at the fourth last fence from the much fancied Douvan, who was leading up until that point. A prime example of how and why jump racing is so exciting at Cheltenham!

Glenfarclas Cross Country Handicap Chase

Originally a handicap race, this was changed to a conditions race in 2016. Open to horses aged five, and older, this race is run on the cross-country course at Cheltenham over 3 miles and 6 furlongs with an enormous 32 obstacles to navigate. Run at 16:10 is the perfect race to have after the drama of the Queen Mothers Champion Chase!

Prior to the run, many felt that 2017 winner, Cause of Causes, was well in with a shout of winning consecutive outings here – but it was not to be for the Gordon Elliott trained horse. It wasn’t all doom and gloom though, as Tiger Roll was able to hold off late challenges up the hill and was able to run to victory with four lengths over nearest challenger, Urgent De Gregaine.

It may not have been the most action packed of last year’s Festival, but it was a thoroughly clean run by the Gordon Elliott horse. It was Elliott’s second winner of the day too, following Samcro’s victory earlier on in the day.

Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle

Following shortly after the Cross Country Chase is this, is this Handicap race for novice hurdlers at 16:50. Introduced in 2005 when the Festival became a four-day extravaganza they named this event in honour of Fred Winter who was successful as both jockey and trainer at Cheltenham, with a rather decent record of 17 victories as a jockey and 28 as a trainer!

The Grade 3 outing is run by horses aged four years, and over, over the distance of 2 miles and ½ furlong with just eight hurdles to be jumped. Last year’s winner Veneer Of Charm brought about a Gordon Elliott hat-trick of winners on Cheltenham Festival Ladies Day. It was no thanks to his last jump, which didn’t seem good enough to put him in contention for this competitive race, but he was able to get his head down and hold on to victory in front of both Turning Gold and Nube Negra.

Weatherbys Champion Bumper

We wrap up the Cheltenham Wednesday race card at 17:30 with this Champion Bumper. Run by horses between four and six years old, over 2 miles and ½ a furlong this Grade 1 race is the most prestigious flat race of the National Hunt calendar. Despite not having won here for five years, Ruby Walsh remains the leading jockey in this event.

Last year’s winner Relegate helped bring about the rare occurrence of a 1-2-3 in a Festival race for a trainer, however, this was not the only time Willie Mullins achieved this feat; he also did the same in the 2015 Champion Hurdle. Katie Walsh ran Relegate to a neck victory over stable-mate Carefully Selected in this closer of the Cheltenham races on Ladies Day.
