A group of Crystal Palace fans are hoping their horse can pull off a big win at the Cheltenham Festival today.

Steve Preston is the majority owner of horse Sire De Grugy along with his three sons and three friends.

A big Eagles fan, Steve and his crew will be decking out the parade ring in red and blue today. 

Sire De Grugy runs in the 3.20 Queen Mother Champion Chase, the main race of the day.

Steve’s son, Sean Preston, tweeted this morning: “Oh my god it is here, March 23, Queen Mother @Cheltenham, feel a little bit sick but extremely excited.”
