There is no bigger week of the year for jump racing fans than the Cheltenham Festival. Thousands make the trip across Europe for the annual meeting in Gloucestershire, England, while many more tune in to the broadcast of the four days in March. This year’s renewal has some fascinating clashes to look forward to, and arguably none more so than the Cross Country Chase.

Winning once at the prestigious Cheltenham horse racing festival is a dream that the majority of trainers, owners, and jockeys will never experience.
