The Showcase marks the start of the jump racing season at the Home of the sport, Cheltenham Racecourse. Over two days, spectators will get to see action-packed races as the thoroughbreds race across the newly minted track.

Always seen as a celebration, the opening day of the meet is a welcome return to the sport with the track untested since May, and many are excited about the start of the ‘Road to Cheltenham’ that this meet represents.

Day One, or Showcase Friday, offers seven exciting races, with the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle opening proceedings before the signature race of the day, the Matchbook Most Trusted Betting Exchange Novices’ Steeple Chase, which sorts the wheat from the chaff.

Day Two sees another fantastic seven races, all are standard hurdles and chases, including the signature race, the Randox Health Handicap Steeple Chase, except for the closing race, the Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race.

The meet is seen by the industry as a good indicator of the season moving forward, picking out the up and coming horses, jockeys, and everyone else involved, to gain an insight into the months to follow.
