The first day of the Cheltenham Festival - known as Champion Day - traditionally takes place on a Tuesday, and is headlined by the Grade 1 Champion Hurdle. The other major races on the first day include the Grade 1 Arkle Trophy and the Grade 1 Supreme Novices' Hurdle. There are also some very good handicaps to take in, including the Festival Handicap Chase - which is always competitive.

A Grade 1 contest which hasn't been without drama in the last few years, with the Willie Mullins-trained pair of Annie Power (2015) and Benie Des Dieux (2019) falling at the last with the race at their mercy.
