The International Media Guide 2019

Published 2019/12/08

The feature races during the sparkling two-day meeting are the £140,000 G2 Unibet International Hurdle and the £130,000 G3 Caspian Caviar Gold Cup.

The Unibet International Hurdle is often a leading trial for the Unibet Champion Hurdle at The Festival™ presented by Magners in March, while the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup follows on from the BetVictor Gold Cup over the Old Course at The November Meeting and is always a very competitive handicap chase.

Saturday's card also includes the G2 Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle, the Park Mares' Handicap Hurdle and the Cheltenham Club Handicap Chase, which all have prize funds of at least £30,000.

Friday's highlight is the £60,000 G3 BetVictor Handicap Chase, while the £35,000 Glenfarclas Cross Country Handicap Chase takes place on the same day over Cheltenham's unique Cross Country Course and completes the European-wide Crystal Cup Challenge.


This media guide contains a wealth of statistics on the Unibet International Hurdle, the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup, the BetVictor Handicap Chase and the Glenfarclas Cross Country Handicap Chase.

Two horses who ran during The International in 2018 were successful at The Festival presented Magners™ later in the season - Frodon and Le Breuil.
