  1. The signature race went to the Irish Gold Cup winner Sizing John who completed the Grade 1 double. Jessica Harrington has had success at the Festival with two time champion chaser Moscow Flyer and former champion hurdler, Jezki. Both Harrington and the jockey, Robbie Power rounded off the four day meet with Rock The World taking the Grand Annual. So glad that Pacha Du Polder won the amateur’s Gold Cup, trained by Paul Nicholls. Another former Champion Hurdle placed Arctic Fire won the County Hurdle.

  2. What about if UnowhatimeanHarry is sent chasing next season. At his age now 9yrs, surely he would take the Thistlecrack route and have a crack at the Gold Cup as a novice if he takes well to fences. On Soft ground he would be a very interesting contender

  3. Felt very sorry for Lizzie Kelly who must have been gutted at falling at the 2nd before warming up into the race. Unlike Linda Sheedy on Foxbury in 1984 she was not a no-hoper, and let`s hope Tea for Two can remain sound and maintain his form so she can have another crack at the Gold Cup in 12 months.

  4. Just heard that Sizing John will be aimed at the season`s end Punchestown Gold Cup. That will be a cracking chase especially if Coneygree makes the line up.

    Already thinking of the 2018 Cheltenham Gold Cup. What a line up this would be even if only half of these make it on the Day- 2018 Chelt Gold Cup- Sizing John, Yorkhill, Might Bite, Whisper, Native River, Djakadam, American, Thistlecrack, Un Temps Pour Tout, Coneygree, Minella Rocco, Acapella Bourgeois, Empire of Dirt, Valseur Lido, Tiger Roll, Road to Respect, Top Notch, Cloudy Dream, Sub Lieutenant.

  5. backed Sizing John after his win in the Irish Gold Cup. He is. surely a stayer. well done to Jessica Harrington and Robbie Power

  6. one of the worst gold cup winners in a long time, if thistlecrack was in this race he would have won by 20+ lengths

  7. Sizing John won the Irish Gold Cup on Soft Ground and now the Blue Riband on Good ground so he has proved himself a really good horse. Hats off to Jessica Harrington for not listening to the so called experts who said he should go for the Ryanair Chase. Gordon Elliott must have been very frustrated watching this as Empire of Dirt who he wanted to run in the Gold Cup, would surely have gone very close if not winning, as watching the closing stages of the Leopardstown Gold Cup he was the one staying on the best of all only beaten 3/4 lengths by Sizing John. Gigginstown seem to be more interested in winning there own race than the Blue Riband, and their horse Sub Lieutenant also a Gold Cup entry, staying on 2nd in the Ryanair yesterday would also have been in the shake up if given his chance.

  8. I said that yesterday that Sizing John, Djakadam and Native River would touch down together and what happened? They touched down together πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  9. Mervyn Charter : Great line-up you predicted for next year’s Gold Cup, hope they all do go to post plus a few extras, I don’t like seeing small fields for major races.

  10. Best horse in the race won chasing douvan around 2 years step up in distance in the Irish gold cup and here couldn’t be more happy for Robbie power well done mate ??????????????????

  11. Won done Sizing John. I put 50 pound free bets on him and got 450 pounds back plus paddypower gave my 20 pound bonus. This is the best Cheltenham ever. I did native River and Djakadam with money 50 each. So i gained 350 pounds πŸ™‚
    I wanted on the fringe to win later but i did feel – because Nina wasn’t riding him. I wasn’t 100% but no i didn’t win on that. Well done Sizing John well done boy. Tho i did want djakadam to win so your heart gets you in trouble. I got Sizing john 9/1 on free bets πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  12. Great winner. Fill up my pockets too. Happy days.

  13. Sluts, sluts, I fuck sluts
    Sluts get fucked when I fuck sluts
    No ifs and’s, and/or buts. I fuck sluts
    I fuck sluts. Nice girls are nice but no good for nut-sucking
    They’ll need a serene night to green-light a butt fucking
    But that’ll be easy with sleazy old slut fucking
    Boo to the nice girls. Praise be to slut fucking!
    I have a list. A list? Yes a list of all the sluts I’ve missed
    I’ve never fucked or sucked these sluts and thus my nuts are fucking pissed
    So when I fuck the lucky slut my nut removes her from the list

  14. Thistlecrack would have drowned this lot, Sizing John thrashed by Douvan which begs the question of Douvan stepping up to 3 miles, 2 milers Dessie and Kauto did it, Douvan has a good engine, Mullins got to try 2m 4f for him to see how he takes it, they say they don’t come back from injury but its not a bad one, so hard to keep horses sound, a lot of punters don’t realise that many things go wrong with horses, they’re not designed to jump with humans on their back.
