The April meeting at Cheltenham is where the jump season really starts to wind down and it’s a great mid-week race meeting to go to. The meeting is over two days and is a great time to head to Cheltenham to really see what it has to offer without having to fight your way to the bar. To help make this meeting even better on the Wednesday night after racing there is a charity football match, now this is no ordinary match with a few token jockeys thrown in this is AP McCoy heading up the jockeys team VS the Cheltenham Town Legends! Now we can all be honest and say for sure, unless you are an avid Cheltenham Town supporter we probably won’t of heard of most of them but they are probably going to be pretty good and thrash the jockeys you have heard off!
In APs team you have the likes of the man himself! Sam Twiston Davies, Paddy Brennan, David Bass, Alain Cawley, Jamie Bargary. Pro keeper Conrad Logan and many more. So whatever the result I would imagine it will be entertaining if nothing else. The thing with jockeys is they are very competitive, and would hate to lose!
