Nico de Boinville and Constitution Hill were the ones to beat in the curtain-raiser of the Cheltenham Festival 2022, as they turned the seemingly hot-favorite Supreme into a procession. The Nicky Henderson-trained novice travelled ominously well and powered clear of the toiling field, winning by a staggering 22 lengths. The imposing grey seemed to be in a league of his own among his eight rivals and has emerged as another hugely talented individual for the master trainer at Seven Barrows. It was a dominant display that sent shockwaves through the racing world and left many wondering if they had just witnessed a future champion in the making.

The Arkle Chase – Results

The atmosphere was electric as the home team added another winner to their tally in the Arkle Chase. Edwardstone performed flawlessly, showing incredible stamina and determination up the Cheltenham hill to give jockey Tom Cannon his first-ever victory. Despite taking a knock from a rival two fences from the finish line, Alan King’s star remained resolute and proved too strong for the competition, clinching his fifth win out of six attempts over fences. The Arkle Chase certainly lived up to its reputation as a thrilling and fiercely competitive race.

The Ultima Handicap Chase

2ndGericault Roque
3rdOscar Elite
4thTea Clipper

Day 1 of the Cheltenham Festival was filled with incredible performances. Still, the standout ride undoubtedly came from jockey Derek Fox, who masterfully piloted Corach Rambler to victory in the fiercely contested Ultima Handicap Chase. Fox held the eight-year-old off the pace early on but made a decisive move turning for home and urging the gelding up Cheltenham Hill. With a burst of speed, Corach Rambler powered past his rivals and emerged victorious in an unforgettable display of determination and skill. Lucinda Russell’s charge proved that anything is possible at the Festival.

The Champion Hurdle


The much-anticipated opening day feature, the Champion Hurdle, did not disappoint as the superstar mare Honeysuckle performed scintillating to maintain her unbeaten record. Under a confident ride from jockey Rachael Blackmore, the mare quickened away from the field on the climb to the finish, leaving former champion Epatante trailing in her wake. The crowd’s deafening roar echoed through the Cheltenham stands as Honeysuckle entered the winner’s enclosure, celebrating her 15th consecutive victory. Henry De Bromhead’s star mare certainly lived up to her billing as a favourite and cemented her place as one of the greatest hurdlers ever.

3rdMrs Milner

Ridden by jockey Nico de Boinville, Marie’s Rock produced a late burst of speed in the Mares’ Hurdle to edge out Queens Brook, trained by Gordon Elliot. Nicky Henderson’s seven-year-old mare had been well-fancied before the race and showed why staying on strongly up the famous Cheltenham hill to clinch victory in the final strides of the race. This win gave team Britain their fourth victory on the opening day, much to the delight of the cheering crowds.

Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle

2ndRun Wild Fred

Gaelic Warrior had a great opportunity to capitalize on his opening mark of 129, but his lack of experience cost him dearly. Despite being well supported by the punters, his wayward jumping proved his downfall. Instead, Brazil stayed on strongly under jockey Mark Walsh and trainer Padraig Roche, winning by a short head and denying Gaelic Warrior the victory. It was a thrilling race that showcased the importance of focus and composure, particularly in the face of fierce competition at Cheltenham.

National Hunt Chase

2ndRun Wild Fred

Willie Mullins was celebrating again as Stattler delivered a smart performance in the concluding National Hunt Chase. The son of Shantou, ridden by Mullins’ son Patrick, jumped superbly well all the way around before staying on, best of all to go clear of race favourite Run Wild Fred. Despite only six runners taking their chance in the race, Stattler showed his class and stayed strong to win. Mullins Sr. must be thrilled to have another promising prospect to add to his already impressive string of horses.

Brown Advisory Novice Chase

1stL’Homme Presse
2ndAhoy Senor

Despite the withdrawal of the unbeaten novice Bravemansgame due to the heavy rain, the novice chase was still a highly anticipated race on day 2. However, L’Homme Presse stole the show with an impressive victory for trainer Venetia Williams and jockey Charlie Deutsch. The seven-year-old put in a faultless round of jumping and powered up the famous Cheltenham hill to leave his rivals trailing in his wake.

Coral Cup

1stCommander Of Fleet
3rdAshdale Bob

In a tightly contested race, Gordon Elliot again showed his mastery by guiding Commander Of Fleet to victory in the handicap chase. The eight-year-old, running in the colours of owners Gigginstown, faced a stern challenge from Fastorslow but showed great resilience and tenacity to hold on and win by a short head, even after making a mistake over the final flight. Many did not see the victory coming, as Commander Of Fleet was considered a long-odds contender. However, Elliot’s expert handling proved the difference, as the horse dug deep and found the will to win.

The Champion Chase

2ndFunambule Sivola
3rdEnvoi Allen

The Champion Chase on day 2 of the Cheltenham Festival saw a surprising turn of events as the hot favourite Shishkin struggled to cope with the testing conditions and was forced to pull up early. This left the door open for Energumene, who had been patiently waiting in second place, to take the lead and run out an impressive winner for trainer Willie Mullins and jockey Paul Townend. Despite the departure of stablemate Chacun Pour Soi, the seven-year-old gelding displayed a stunning performance, jumping flawlessly and displaying a turn of the foot up the Cheltenham hill to clinch victory in what was a dominant display.

4thEditeur Du Gite

Trainer Ben Pauling continued his impressive record at the Festival, with a third win courtesy of Global Citizen’s smart front-running performance. The ten-year-old was not fancied in the betting and was returning to fences after a long hiatus, but he powered through the tough conditions to beat the heavily-backed Andy Dufresne. Pauling’s previous winners, Willoughby Court and Le Breuil had already established him as a formidable force at Cheltenham. Global Citizen’s win only adds to his growing reputation as a trainer to watch.

The highly-anticipated clash between Galopin Des Champs and Bob Olinger seemed to be going in one direction, with Galopin Des Champs dominating the race. However, the race took an unexpected turn when Galopin Des Champs slipped on landing after the final hurdle, giving Bob Olinger a chance to claim victory and maintain his unbeaten record over the larger obstacles. It was a dramatic turn of events that left spectators on the edge of their seats until the end.

4thWinter Fog

In a thrilling finish to the Pertemps Network Final, the home team secured a rare 1-2-3, with Hughie Morrison’s Third Wind coming out on top. The race was closely contested, with several horses jostling for position throughout. However, as they approached the final furlong, Third Wind found an extra gear and surged forward, leaving the rest of the field struggling to keep up. Alaphilippe, who had been well supported in the betting, put in a late charge and looked like he might snatch victory from Third Wind, but the leader held on gamely to cross the line first. It was a well-deserved win for the Morrison team, who had clearly prepared their horse well for this grueling race.

Ryanair Chase

3rdEldorado Allen

The Ryanair Chase was dominated by Allaho, as the talented horse took full control of the race and never looked back.
