The Triumph Hurdle is the first race run on the last day of the Cheltenham Festival meeting, run over two miles and one furlong for four-year-old juveniles. The trends suggest that horses that won last time out should be closely followed and as this is a juvenile race, make sure your selection has raced over one and a half miles on the flat. The following races are recognised as trials for the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
