The St James’ Place Foxhuntes Chase is the fifth race on the final day of the Cheltenham Festival.
The race is another race in the week that is specifically for amateur jockeys and is ran on the new Cheltenham course over 3 miles and 2 furlongs, with 22 fences for the runners to contend with. It is the same course and distance as the Gold Cup, which leads it to being referred to as the Gold Cup for the amateur riders.
The event is open to horses five and older to horses that have either placed at least twice in hunter chases, have won two point to points or won one point to point and placed at least once in a hunter’s chase.
There is prize money of £27,000 on offer to the winner.
