Listen: 2018 Cheltenham Festival Gets Underway

: 03/13/2018 - 08:14

The 2018 Cheltenham Festival starts today, on the wettest ground in 36 years.

The going at the Gloucestershire track is officially described as heavy, soft in places, after rain in the build-up.

13 horses go to post for the Champion Hurdle which tops the bill on Day 1 of the Cheltenham Festival.

Talk, though, is likely to be dominated by the conditions.

Mike Vince looks ahead.
