The Cheltenham Festival is the greatest show of the jump racing season, and with the four-day meeting now growing ever closer, the excitement is building about seeing the best horses on the planet go head to head in the most coveted races in the industry.

The greatest horses ever to grace the jump racing world have confirmed their legendary status by winning at the Cheltenham Festival, and in 2023 there is another group of equine superstars hoping to add their names to that elite list of legends.

Some more than others are on the brink of becoming one of the greatest of all time, some are taking their first steps towards legendary status, whilst others are merely there to compete at the pinnacle of the jump racing world.

Let’s take a look at some of the horses not to be missed in 2023.

Constitution Hill

Constitution Hill is the new superstar of the sport. Despite having only had five races in his fledgling career, he has shown enough in those races to suggest he is well on his way to becoming one of the best ever.

Nicky Henderson’s stable star is top of the list for all racing tips, despite being a very short price of 4/11 for the Champion Hurdle. His stunning victory in last season’s Supreme Novices’ Hurdle was breathtaking, and he is definitely a horse not to be missed on day 1 of the meeting.

Galopin Des Champs

The Irish banker of the meeting, Galopin Des Champs is the name on everyone’s lips when it comes to this year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup. Willie Mullins’ raider is the shortest-priced favourite there has been for some time in the blue ribband of jump racing, and it is easy to see why given his performances to date.

Twelve months ago the strikingly beautiful specimen was the hard luck story of the festival, coming down at the final fence with the race at his mercy in the Turners Novices’ Chase. With that experience now a distant memory after another stellar season, Galopin Des Champs is likely to land the biggest prize in the sport and take his first steps toward becoming a Cheltenham legend.


The second horse from the Nicky Henderson stable, Shiskin was well on his way to becoming one of the best-ever horses in jump racing, but a dip in form starting at the festival last year put a spanner in the works.

There was a worry that the brilliant chaser’s best days were behind him, but those doubts were finally put to bed after an incredible performance in the recent Ascot Chase. It was the first time that the twelve-time winner had tackled more than 2 miles, and he catapulted his way to the top of the market for the Ryanair Chase on day 3 of this year’s festival.

These are just three of the superstar horses set to strut their stuff on the hallowed turf of Cheltenham Racecourse in 2023, and they are likely to put in performances that are worth tuning in for.

There are plenty of other young horses that will take their first steps towards hugely successful careers, so make sure to stop what you are doing and enjoy the scintillating action on offer in the Cotswolds this March.
