Cheltenham Past Winners
There were 28 races that took place at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival. The feature race of the day is scheduled as the fourth contest on each day. Tuesday’s feature, the Champion Hurdle, was won by Nicky Henderson’s Buveur d’Air. Wednesday’s Champion Chase was won by Special Tiara after odds-on favourite Douvan was found to be injured following the race. However Willie Mullins did win the feature race on day three, the Stayers’ Hurdle, with Nichols Canyon. Ireland’s champion trainer was out of luck again in the Gold Cup though, with Djakadam (sent off favourite) finishing only fourth behind the winner Sizing John.
