Cheltenham Festival Day Two Gets The All Clear After Weather Scare

No need to panic, the show goes on…

Cheltenham officials have given the go-ahead for Day Two of the festival to proceed as normal after projected high-winds had threatened the card.

An 8am check of the course was due to take place due to the forecast but it was announced at roughly 6.10am that Day Two had been given the green light after the conditions were not as bad as previously feared.

“We’re delighted the weather conditions have changed from the initial forecasts and the prospects of higher wind speeds and gusts have receded,” said clerk of the course, Simon Claisse.

“We’re looking forward to a fantastic day’s racing on the Old Course with the feature race the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase.”
