Default Long Shot - Cheltenham Festival

Anybody know if this fine sporting event will be shown on any UAE accessible TV channels?

No idea sorry - but I won 60 quid on the Gold Cup last year - then they shot my horse in the Grand National. Horrible race.

I had a 33/1 winner in the national but had my worst ever Cheltenham festival. Would be good to watch it so if anyone has any ideas if it will be shown or whether there is a way of watching Channel 4 in real time from the UK then great!

You could try this:

I use it sometimes for football, with mixed results.

There is a Dubai Racing channel on the tellybox, they normally show loads of UK racing - no doubt they'll show CheltFes

Might it not be snowed off? Otherwise, the Dubai Racing Channel is probably your best bet.

Cheltenham used to be like an annual Irish Gathering. Now I suppose it is the great and the not-so-good from the ruling elite of the UAE !
