    The opening day of the Cheltenham Festival serves up some of the greatest days racing with four Grade 1 races on the card. The Champion Hurdle is the highlight and it has undergone major changes with Britain's superstar ruled out due to an unsatisfactory blood test. State Man is hot favourite with Irish Point looking likely to take his chance.

    Queen Mother Champion Chase - Wednesday 13 March

    The Queen Mother Champion Chase is the highlight on day two of the Cheltenham Festival. The two-mile event tests, speed, agility and talent. Last year's festival winner El Fabiolo was super impressive in the Arkle last year and heads the 2024 market.

    Stayers' Hurdle - Thursday 14 March

    Teahupoo ran a cracker in last year's renewal and should go close again. Crambo and Noble Yeats are his main rivals and represent big dangers.

    Cheltenham Gold Cup - Friday 15 March

    The Cheltenham Gold Cup is the most prestigious event of four days and is the ultimate prize for staying chasers. Galopin Des Champs was mightily impressive winning the latest renewal and will go for glory again this season.

    Bookmakers have Galopin Des Champs as current favourite.
