Cheltenham live results today: winners and updates from the 5.30 race

Thousands gather on the first day of the Cheltenham Festival

The Cheltenham Festival returns for 2023 with an exciting week of racing lined up in the Cotswolds for what’s known as ‘The Greatest Show on Turf’, with race-goers disembarking at the iconic course.

Champion Hurdle and Gold Cup book the four-day meeting as perhaps the two most prestigious Grade 1 races, with Constitution Hill triumphing in Tuesday’s Champion Hurdle, showing his class winning in Canter after starting the race overwhelmingly and aggressively. Supported favourites.

Meanwhile, Rachael Blackmore returns to Cheltenham looking to create more history after a stunning win to retain the Gold Cup in 2022 – a victory that helped the Irish managers easily beat their British counterparts to easily claim the prestigious Prestbury Cup, with a whopping 18 wins. Compared to just 10 for domestic horses.

The festival provides a massive £274m boost to the local economy, a study from the University of Gloucestershire finds, and while organizers hope the rain stops, it promises an exciting week of racing regardless.
