The Cheltenham Festival, one of the most anticipated events in the horse racing calendar, is now on its fourth day. As expected, the festival has seen some of the biggest names in the sport competing against each other, with their respective trainers and jockeys vying for the prized accolades.

With day four already commenced, the anticipation among horse racing followers is at an all-time high with the race high on many race-goers wish lists The racing carnival has already seen several upsets with a number of horses surpassing expectations and providing unexpected victories. However, as day four gets underway, many will be looking for their favourite runners to rise to the occasion and secure a spot at the top.

Among those expected to make an impressive showing today are the likes Al Boum Photo, who has been tipped as one of the likely winners in the Gold Cup. The Willie Mullins-trained Al Boum Photo is no stranger to racing success, having already claimed victory in the Gold Cup at Cheltenham in 2019, before winning the race again last year.

Another favourite is Monkfish, trained by Willie Mullins and known for its strong showing in the Marsh Novices’ Chase. Considered by many as one of the top candidates to win this year’s RSA Chase, Monkfish already boasts a strong track record, having triumphed in the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham last year.

Another horse that is expected to have a big day today is Chacun Pour Soi who will be competing in the Queen Mother Champion Chase. With a new trainer in charge of the horse, many are expecting the horse to put in a strong showing today. Chacun Pour Soi has already shown its pedigree, winning the Dublin Chase at the start of the year and is widely tipped as one of the horses to watch out for.

Another runner that has drawn plenty of attention is the Gordon Elliott-trained Envoi Allen. The horse is seeking to extend its winning streak, having emerged victorious in 11 races so far. Envoi Allen is scheduled to participate in the Marsh Novices’ Chase and it could very well make history as the first horse to win three different races at the Cheltenham Festival.

Other notable runners that could turn out to be a surprise package include the Jonjo O’Neill-trained Galvin, which has been in scintillating form this season, plus the Dan Skelton-trained Allmankind in the Triumph Hurdle. Other horses to keep an eye on for the rest of the festival include Imperial Aura, Sporting John and The Big Breakaway.

It is, of course, hard to predict the outcome of the races with absolute certainty especially at a festival known for its unpredictability. However, it’s fair to say that horse racing fans will be anticipating a thrilling day of racing no matter the end result. The Cheltenham Festival has long been known for delivering high-quality racing action and its fourth day promises to keep fans both expected and otherwise, at the edge of their seats.

In conclusion, the fourth-day of the Cheltenham Festival is gearing up to be an action-packed and thrilling day of horse racing.
