The 2022 Cheltenham Festival came to life this week as racing fans prepare for one of the biggest weeks on the calendar.
Gloucestershire’s showpiece is a highlight of the British racing season and is headlined by the historic Gold Cup.

Now Cheltenham are set to have a full house of fans again for the four days of elite racing and the action is almost upon us.
