THOUSANDS of people are heading to Cheltenham Racecourse today for the biggest day of the Festival.
Newbury winner Bobs Worth is the favourite as racegoers head to Prestbury Park for Gold Cup Day.
But the dry weather of the last few days is expected to break with heavy rain being predicted for this afternoon's races.
Whatever the weather the atmosphere is set to be electric at Prestbury Park where the finest jockeys, trainers, horses - and fans - will see the Festival out with a famous Cheltenham roar.
Speculation is already mounting that Kate and Wills - the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - could be heading to Cheltenham Festival today to watch the action.
