Cheltenham Festival Day Four

Race 5 – Foxhunter Challenge Cup Open Hunters’ Chase

Friday 16 March 2018

               

 

A different perspective this year, for days 2, 3 and 4, when I spent the majority

of my time on the upper steppings overlooking the Winners’ Enclosure

In the Parade Ring

 

I have captured 23 of the 24 runners, the omission being No. 22 Wells De Lune;

there were no non-runners
