The final day of the 2019 Cheltenham Festival, the highlight on the card is of course the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

The supporting card on Gold Cup day is a good one, though, and also features the Grade 1 Triumph Hurdle and the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle.

Cheltenham Festival Friday Race Cards 

1.30pm - Triumph Hurdle (Grade 1)

A Grade 1 contest for four-year-olds, the Triumph Hurdle has produced several stars of the future, including Zarkandar (2011) and the dual Grand National winner Tiger Roll (2014).

2.10pm - County Hurdle (Grade 3)

A big betting race, a big-priced outsider regularly goes well in this two-mile handicap contest.

2.50pm - Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle (Grade 1)

The second Grade 1 contest of the afternoon, the Albert Bartlett is for staying novice hurdlers, and has produced several smart staying chasers.

3.30pm - Gold Cup (Grade 1)

The pinnacle of the sport, the Cheltenham Gold Cup is the feature race of the entire Festival, and one of the few racing events which hit the sporting mainstream.

4.10pm - Foxhunter Steeple Chase (Class 2)

Known as the 'amateur Gold Cup', the race is run over the same trip as the Cheltenham showpiece around 40 minutes before it, and is exclusively for amateur riders.

4.50pm - Grand Annual Chase (Grade 3)

A handicap chase over two miles, the Grand Annual isn't shy of a big-priced winner, and was won by 66/1 shot Croco Bay in 2019.

5.30pm - Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle (Class 2)

The finale of the Cheltenham Festival, the Martin Pipe is for conditional jockeys only, and is run over a trip of two and a half miles.
