Cheltenham day three: Twitter reacts
Punters get firing on Thursday
There was relief for punters on the penultimate day of the Cheltenham Festival, with the well-supported Yorkhill winning a dramatic renewal of the JLT Novices Chase to stick it to bookies.
Other jollies went in too, Un De Sceaux living up to the pre-race hype in the Ryanair, while fans’ favourite Nichols Canyon stormed the Stayers Hurdle at double-figure odds.
At last there was some joy in the stands, and Twitter summed the mood up perfectly. We have selected a few of our favourite Tweets from each race…..
