After a long six-month break, it's no wonder connoisseurs of high-quality jump racing flock to Gloucestershire in November for the first major horse racing meeting of the National Hunt season, the thrilling Cheltenham Open.
The highlight of Saturday’s action is the Paddy Power Gold Cup, the first classic steeplechase of the season. This £110,000 chase over 2 miles 4 furlongs is a major early-season target for the up-and-coming chasers, especially those owned by Martin Pipe it seems, whose horses have won seven of the last 10 Gold Cups. His latest triumph was in the 2005 Paddy Power Gold Cup with the race favourite, Our Vic.
Our official Gold Cup day package includes entrance to the ever-popular Best Mate Enclosure, where you can experience the terrific, friendly atmosphere. Located directly opposite the main stand, with bars, food outlets and bookmakers very close at hand, you'll be in a prime position to enjoy an action-packed day of top quality National Hunt racing. Remember, return coach travel from selected pick-up points is included in the great-value price, so it couldn’t be more convenient to experience the thrill of the Paddy Power Gold Cup in 2006!
