What is the featured race for Cheltenham on Wednesday?

Wednesday’s featured race is the Queen Mother Champion Chase. Chacun Pour Soi is having his first run at Cheltenham after he missed the race last year due to an abscess on his foot the morning of the race.

The Rich Ricci-owned horse will be keen to make amends this year but faces a tough but not stellar field in this year’s race.

Don’t be surprised to see last year’s Arkle winner Put The Kettle On outrun her price.

The Henry De Bromhead mare has won three out of three at Cheltenham and her course form gives her a major advantage over the Willie Mullins favourite.
