Cheltenham Festival 2020: Day 4 (13th March)

A fantastic Day 3 at the Cheltenham Festival. 

Highlights: Samco winning the March Novices' Chase on the nod. On a personal note, I was over the moon to see Min battle hard and hold on in gutsy style from Saint Calvados in the Ryanair Chase. 

Rebecca Curtis and the team were overjoyed to see 50/1 Lisnagar Oscar win, battling on well to win by two lengths. By all accounts, the Welsh trainer had told syndicates Racing For Fun that the seven-year-old gelding would win!
