When is Day 3 of the Cheltenham Festival 2024?

Cheltenham Day 3 TipsDay three of the Cheltenham Festival, St Patrick’s Thursday, or St Paddy’s, as it’s also known is on Thursday 14th March 2024.

Racing gets underway at 1.30pm with the Marsh Novices Chase.  The feature race of the day is the Ryanair Chase at 2.50pm though there will also be a lot of excitement for the Paddy Power Stayers Hurdle at 3.30pm.  We finish day 4 off with the usual Kim Muir Challenge Cup at 5.30pm.

Cheltenham Festival Thursday is a typically Irish affair with the Guinness Village being a star attraction, as well as live music around the course throughout the day.  We're looking forward to an excellent day of horse racing at Cheltenham Festival.

How did we do?

A Paddy's Day to forget, with losses and falls all over our tips, only Allaho did the business for us, but the odds were so short.
GALOPIN DES CHAMPS 1.30 Cheltenham 10/11 – Fell 🙁
BALLYANDY 2.10 Cheltenham 12/1 each way – Lost
ALLAHO 2.50 Cheltenham 8/13 – Won!
THYME HILL 3.30 Cheltenham 4/1 – Came in 2nd
THE GLANCING QUEEN 4.10 Cheltenham 10/3 – Lost
DINOBLUE 4:50 Cheltenham 2/1 – Lost
MR FOGPATCHES 5:30 Cheltenham 8/1 each way – Lost

Well we spoke too soon, both Day 1 and Day 2 were really good for us, today the wheel fell off.  We go again on Gold Cup Day.

1.20pm – ENVOI ALLEN – chased leaders, fell 4th 🙁

1.55pm – DANDY MAG – held up towards rear, headway approaching 2 out, chased leaders before last, never going pace to reach leaders, no extra towards finish, 7th place.

2.30pm – MIN – led until 2nd, chased winner until after 3 out, weakened and pulled up before 2 out

3.05pm – PAISLEY PARK –  held up towards rear, headway out wide before 2 out, ridden chasing leaders between last 2, outpaced before last, kept on well run-in, went 3rd towards finish.

3.40pm – SMARTY WILD – non-runner – unofficial replacement PADDYS POEM finished 17th.

4.15pm – HOOK UP – held up and always towards rear, never on terms – 12th place

4.50pm – HOLD THE NOTE – chased leaders, outpaced when mistake 3 out, rallied 2 out, weakened flat finishing in 4th place for a bit of each way value.

Keith's tips on Paddy's Day began badly when ITCHY FEET unseated at the 6th in the Marsh Novices Chase.

The day quickly got better when at 10/1 SIRE DU BERLAIS stayed on strongly to take the Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle.

FRODON led the Ryanair Chase until the 6th fence but once headed was well held and finished fourth.

The Stayers Hurdle saw another odds on favourite turned over when PAISLEY PARK was unable to produce his trademark late run, it was reported he had lost two shoes during the race.

Our runner in the Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate BEN DUNDEE was making good headway when hampered by fallers 2 fences out and fifth was the best he could manage.

MINELLA MELODY went form traveling well to being eased right down after being headed before the last in the Mares Novices Hurdle.

LE BRIEUL never made any impression in the Kim Muir and finished well down the field.
