Cheltenham Festival 2017 Quiz

So the best four days of the year is over and it’s safe to say we are in one hell of a Cheltenham hangover with only the Grand National as any source of imminent cure. A festival with plenty of ups and downs for punters but overall a lot more downs. It kicked off with 25/1 shot Labaik bolting up in the Supreme and that really set the tone of the festival for punters.

Altior made hard work of victory in the Arkle and then most peoples festival banker Douvan ran an absolute shocker at 1/4 in the Queen Mother Champion Chase with scans later revealing last years Arkle winner was in fact injured.

The cause wasn’t helped by punters favourite trainer Willie Mullins failing to get a winner in the opening two days but he did make up for this slight demise as he trained and Ruby rode a four timer on Thursday which included victories for well backed favourites Yorkhill in the JLT Novices Chase and then Un De Sceaux in the Ryanair Chase as he clawed back ground on Gordon Elliott for the trainers title.

Friday was however more like the Tuesday and Wednesday despite a thoroughly impressive victory for the Philip Hobbs trained Defi Du Seuil in the Triumph Hurdle. Hot favs in the shape of Death Duty, Djakadam and On The Fringe all got turned over to continue the fire in the pockets of the big money punters.

So if you’ve got the Cheltenham blues, we want you to reminisce from what maybe wasn’t the best Cheltenham for your bank account but was undoubtedly a massive sporting spectacle which you wish was every week.
