Top 10 Horses to Follow at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival

Last year’s Cheltenham Festival was one of the last major sporting events to be held before the UK went into national lockdown due to the global COVID-19 pandemic and took place with live spectators under somewhat of a cloud. The 2021 festival will undoubtedly take place “behind closed doors” as have most of the racing fixtures since last summer.
