The International takes place at Cheltenham on Friday, 10 December and Saturday, 11 December 2010, offering close to £600,000 in prize money over the two-day meeting.


An added bonus to The International in 2010 is the Grade One Keith Prowse Hospitality Tingle Creek Chase, which has been re-routed to Cheltenham on Saturday following the abandonment of Sandown Park on 4 December.

Also run as part of a bumper eight-race card on Saturday, 11 December, is the £150,000 International, one of the most lucrative hurdle contests of the entire season.
