The 2016 Cheltenham Festival continued with a thrilling day four with some top-class horse racing action coming from the famous Gold Cup and many others. Here are the best Tweets and videos.

It was the Triumph Hurdle that got things underway on the final day, in what was a great race..

The favourite Ivanovich Gorbatov secured victory in the opener, just beating Apple’s Jade to first position..

Not a great week for the bookies..

Coral ambassador Dan Skelton enjoyed a great afternoon as his Superb Story won the County Hurdle!

Unowhatimeanharry earned a superb win in the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle next up to remain unbeaten at Cheltenham..

This is what the odds looked like before they set off..

Next was the big one for Festival goers, the Gold Cup, and Don Poli was getting plenty of attention!

Although, Don Poli could only place in third, as the race favourite Don Cossack stormed to first to win this year’s coveted Gold Cup..

Relive that sublime run here..

Cue Card was heavily backed before the start but fell towards the end, though fortunately it got straight back up and looked to be in good condition..

Before even saddling up, Olympic Gold medalist Victoria Pendleton was the centre of attention at the Festival and there was an early faller before she raced in the Foxhunter Chase..

Pendleton was backed by compatriot and former world heavyweight champion David Haye at the Festival..

The former Olympic cyclist was hugely impressive as she gallantly finished in fifth on Pacha Du Polder..

It was Nina Carberry who prevailed though, winning the race atop On The Fringe..

Ibis Du Rheu ran to victory in the penultimate race of the day, winning the Martin Pipe Handicap..

One race-goer may have had a few too many pints on the final day..

From us at Coral, we hope you enjoyed a profitable week at the Cheltenham Festival..
