ITV Racing: Cheltenham Festival
 
Cheltenham hosts its traditional St Patrick's Thursday, with day three of the festival boasting another day of competitive racing. The feature race is the Ryanair Chase (2.50pm), where Un De Sceaux looks to follow up his win in last year's race for the Willie Mullins team. There's another superb Grade 1 race for the Stayers' Hurdle (3.30pm), where Sam Spinner looks to claim an emotional win for the Jedd O'Keeffe team, and supporting races include the JLT Chase (1.30pm), Pertemps Handicap Hurdle (2.10pm) and another fiercely competitive handicap at 4.10pm.
 
Presented by Ed Chamberlin and Francesca Cumani, analysis from Sir AP McCoy, Mick FitzGerald and Luke Harvey, reporting from Matt Chapman, Brian Gleeson, Oli Bell and Alice Plunkett and commentary from Richard Hoiles - plus Mark Heyes and Charlotte Hawkins look at the fashion at the festival.
