Cheltenham Festival Day 2 races postponed due to high winds

Cheltenham Festival Day 2 races postponed due to high winds The second day of the Cheltenham Festival has been cancelled due to high winds, but the Wednesday's race card will be allocated through Thursday and Friday. High winds with gusts in the excess of 50mph caused the cancellation of the Day 2 of the Cheltenham Festival program and organizers were forced to call off the day's racing on safety grounds.

 There will be 10 races on Thursday, and nine on Friday, with racing starting at 12:30 each day. The Wednesday's feature race, the Queen Mother Champion Chase, will now be run on Thursday along with the World Hurdle. The 2008 Gold Cup race will still be held as scheduled on Friday. You can find the latest odds on the Cheltenham Festival races online at the U.K. licensed bookmaker Bet365.
