The Cheltenham festival is just over two months away and we have taken a look into what the 2021 meeting will look like with the Mares Chase being added and the Novices' Handicap Chase being removed.
With the introduction of the new Grade Two event it has seen some races switched around and we have highlighted the changes for this year's festival.
The Grand Annual which is normally at the back end of the card on Friday has been moved to Wednesday and that space will now be filled by the new Mares' Chase.
This has then meant that some other races will have to be moved and the Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle will now be run on Tuesday in the space that is left by the Novices' Handicap Chase.
