Cheltenham Festival day three – what's on and when

Day 1: Champion Hurdle Day   |    Day 2: Ladies' Day   |    Day 4: Gold Cup Day   |    Cheltenham Festival

It's the JLT Novices' Chase that will get the third day of the 2019 Cheltenham Festival underway at 13:30, with this followed by the Pertemps Final at 14:10.

Want a tip for betting on the Ryanair Chase at 14:50? The first two finishers in each of the last three years were both trained in Ireland, which is ideal on St Patrick's Thursday.

The Stayers' Hurdle is the day's buzz race at 15:30, then it's the Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase at 16:10, the Mares' Novices' Hurdle at 16:50 and Kim Muir Chase last of all at 17:30.

What to bet on in the Stayers' Hurdle

The betting odds for the 2019 Stayers' Hurdle have been consistently changing in the build up to the race, with the price of Paisley Park steadily tumbling throughout the season after racking up a four-timer.

This includes the Grade 1 contest registered as the Long Walk Hurdle and then most recently in the Cleeve Hurdle – which are both respected Stayers' Hurdle trials.

The rarely-seen Penhill is expected to be the main challenger as he returns to Cheltenham Festival to defend his title.

Irish trainers dominated St Patrick's Thursday last year, saddling six of the seven winners.

Gordon Elliott led the way with a hat-trick of victories that were well-backed by the betting public, as Shattered Love landed the JLT, Delta Work took the Pertemps and The Storyteller proved the correct favourite in the Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase odds.

Jockey Davy Russell also enjoyed a memorable day with three winners.

Will Elliott or Russell repeat their achievements in 2019?
