The 2023 Cheltenham Festival gets underway this afternoon.


The 2023 Cheltenham Festival gets underway this afternoon.

The feature of today's card is the Champion Hurdle, where all eyes will be on the favourite, Constitution Hill.

The Supreme Novices Hurdle is the first race of the day, with the Willie Mullins' trained Facile Vega the favourite.

It will also be a significant day for Honeysuckle, with the nine-year-old set to retire after running in the Mares Hurdle.

Today's seven-race card begins at half-past-one.

Join Eoin Beatty on this morning's Kildare Today at 10.45am where bookmaker Daragh Fitzpatrick will mark your card.


A place in the Champions League quarter-finals is on offer for Manchester City tonight.

They're level at a goal apiece with RB Leipzig ahead of the second leg of their last 16 tie.

There's an 8pm start at the Etihad.

At the same time in Portugal, Inter have a 1-0 lead ahead of their meeting with Porto.


Mick McCarthy's Blackpool will look to boost their survival prospects in the Championship tonight.

They're six points adrift of safety ahead of their meeting with QPR.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield, who play Norwich tomorrow, have been placed under a transfer embargo by the EFL.

It's after they were late in submitting their annual accounts.


Scottish Cup holders Rangers will have to get past Old Firm rivals Celtic in the semi-finals for the second season running.

The pair were paired together in last night's draw, with the game scheduled to take place at the end of April.

Third tier Falkirk - who knocked out Championship side Ayr 2-1 last night - will play Inverness in the other last-four tie.


After Sunday's bruising win over Scotland, the Ireland squad will train today.

Tom Stewart and Ross Molony have both been called up ahead of Saturday's Six Nations clash with England.

A win at the Aviva Stadium will earn Ireland a fourth-ever Grand Slam.

But Andy Farrell will be without Iain Henderson and Garry Ringrose, with both ruled out due to injury.


Tributes have been paid to high jump revolutionary Dick Fosbury, who has died at the age of 76.

In the mid-60s he pioneered the back-first technique, which has become the standard in the event.

Fosbury used it to win Olympic gold in Mexico City in 1968.
