• The Irish Road to Cheltenham

    It’s not just the Irish-trained, owned and ridden horses that are central to the success of the Cheltenham Festival. The thousands of Irish punters that follow them in the annual pilgrimage to the Cotswolds make the four days so very special. We are firmly in the ‘Green Corner’ ahead of this year’s extravaganza.

    The Irish challenge is as strong as ever and we’ve taken a detailed look at the horses, trainer and jockeys that will be flying the flag in the weeks to come. The likes of Willie Mullins, Gordon Elliott, Henry De Bromhead, Ruby Walsh, Paul Townend, Davy Russell and Rachael Blackmore all head to Prestbury Park with high hopes. We expect them to deliver!

    Follow our #GreenCorner series of behind-the-scenes videos and exclusive interviews on ahead of the 2019 Festival.
