Cheltenham Festival 2022 LIVE: Gold Cup results, tips, odds, schedule and latest updates as Rachael Blackmore goes on A Plus Tard


Racegoers arrive for the first day of the Cheltenham Festival

In the Cheltenham Festival final, Minella Indo is looking to secure back-to-back Gold Cup wins while Rachael Blackmore leads the challengers on favorite horse A Plus Tard.

Despite a bright and sunny third day, things are soft again after Wednesday’s heavy rain, but conditions are near perfect at the Greatest Show on Turf as the festival draws to a close. The day’s action will of course be spearheaded by the Gold Cup, but looks set to include exciting action at the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle and the JCB Triumph Hurdle, among others.

On the third day, Flooring Porter joined the illustrious list of horses to have won the Stayers’ Hurdle more than once with his second straight win, while Alloha repeated the same feat in the Ryanair Chase, Minella Indo can do with her Gold Cup performances keep up today?

Jockey Robbie Power will think so, but he faces stiff competition from Rachael Blackmore on A Plus Tard and Davy Russell on the back of Galvin – both of whom should start with lesser odds than last year’s winner.

For live updates plus tips, odds and results when the Cheltenham Festival ends today, follow:

Minella Indo is down to 13/2 after three losses. He ran better last time and knows how to win this race so he’s in with a hoot.

A Plus Tard will be available with the favorite brand on November 4th. Galvin comes in at 10/3 while Al Boum Photo joins Minella Indo at 13/2.

Who will win the Gold Cup?

The horses are outside in the parade ring just before they go on the course. Rachael Blackmore said earlier in the day that she still has work to do in the Gold Cup after finishing second with A Plus Tard last year.

Can she win it this time?

Two-time champion Al Boum Photo aims to become the first horse to regain his title since Kauto Star in 2009 and the first triple winner since Best Mate 18 years ago.

If Rachael Blackmore wins on A Plus Tard, she will become the first female jockey to win the Gold Cup.

The next race is the big one. The Cheltenham Gold Cup Chase. 10 horses are running in this race, among them the reigning champion Minella Indo.
