You won't be able to book a through ticket because nowadays the station at Cheltenham Racecourse is only on the Gloucs-Warks steam heritage line (it hasn't been part of the national rail network since the 1970s).

As already mentioned, buses are laid on from the mainline Cheltenham Spa station to the racecourse during the festival.

The CRS code "CRC" mentioned in the original post refers to a different NLC though: K473 CHELT RACES BUS (rather than K587 CHELTENHAM RACES as shown in the manual extract). K473/CRC also has a Bus Day Return available from Cheltenham Spa priced at £5, but you have to put a date into Avantix that the races are actually on (e.g. 13/3/12) for it to appear!
