    At least it's something that you can drink from the Cup (if you're desperate).

    All these races should follow the naming convention, 'The Cheltenham Gold Cup (sponsored by xxxxxx)' rather than 'The xxxxxx Cheltenham Gold Cup'.

    For anyone who looks at the Sporting Life website, there's a short survey here, all who take it are entered in to a draw for tickets for the Sunday of The Open meeting in November

    I think you should. There are plenty here that you know that will be there for all four days. Come and join us, there's no way you'd regret it.

    Fagan has been moved from Gordon Elliott's yard to Alex Hales and will be aimed at the Foxhunters at The Festival.

    Clerk of the Course, Simon Claisse updates: "Watering continues to maintain the ground at Good to Firm with three weeks to go. Our aim is to provide Good ground for the start of the season on the 26th October."

    Cue the p*ss takers

    We're clearly not going to get the same value on Mullins/Elliott/Henderson Festival winners this season (odds on for 15!) so how about looking at this?

    Backing every Mullins and Elliott horse in the 5 handicap hurdles last Festival gave a profit of £490 to a £10 stake at SP. 2017 gave a £140 profit and 2016 a £60 loss. If you go with a bookie who gives free cash out or wait until it's NRNB, I'd have thought that you could do better than SP.

    Just thinking out loud here. What do the pros think?
    The older I get the better I was.
