Abstract:

For fans, National Hunt racing has only one home: Cheltenham. The racecourse, which occupies a perfect natural amphitheatre with Cleeve Hill as a dramatic backdrop, is frequently described as “the theatre of dreams". The four-day Festival in March has become the pinnacle of ambition for trainers, jockeys and owners. To win there is everything. For punters, months of speculating, planning and wagering climax in fortunes won or lost. Horse-lovers watch, hearts racing, as their favourites soar over the birch and gallop up the famous hill to the finish. The passion expressed in the roar as the tap.
