Cheltenham Festival Throwback Race Of The Day


The Cheltenham festival is now just one day away and to get us in the mood we are taking a look back at last year's Champion Hurdle, the feature event on day one of the greatest show on turf.

The superstar mare took the event last year with ease under a great ride by Barry Geraghty, but this year she takes on the likes of Goshen and Honeysuckle which will make it so much more harder to retain her title.

The leading mare this season landed the Grade One Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle before going on to finish second behind Silver Streak in the Grade One Christmas Hurdle.

She will need to be better than that on Tuesday if she does want to win back to back renewals of the race like her stablemate Buveur D'Air.

The Champion Hurdle this season is one of the races of the festival like it should be most years, but this event is set to got down in the history books.

In the mean time enjoy last year's race!
