Tuesday 10th - Friday 13th March 2020

Paul Townend ended the week as the Holland Cooper Leading Jockey Award for the Ruby Walsh Trophy with five successes and two seconds, taking his overall victories at The Festival™ presented by Magners to 15 wins.
 
His employer, Willie Mullins said: "This was a huge week for Paul Townend. Coming here as the first jockey and not the understudy for the first year.
 
"It was a fair bit of pressure, but he has stamped his authority on Cheltenham and I am really happy for him.
 
"He has showed that he looks like the man for the job. Paul was able to handle the pressure."
