Here at myracing.com, we have organised a packed and informative Cheltenham Preview Podcast, drilling straight down to the facts and getting a host of opinions from some brilliant guests. With the Cheltenham Festival fast approaching, four day’s of the best National Hunt racing, it is crucial to have all the information so you’re ready to tackle this brilliant week. Our Cheltenham Festival tips and previews are available now, but our podcast provides another great angle and cannot be missed if you want to be in the know ready for March 14th!

Who is involved?
The podcast is being hosted by At The Races’ Tim Carroll, with the panel consisting of Andrew Thornton, Sean Trivass and Matthew Newman. Andrew Thornton needs no introduction, being a multiple Grade 1 winning jockey with over 1000 victories under his belt, including a Gold Cup win on Cool Dawn, with that illustrious landmark reached on Boxing Day 2016 on Kentford Myth. Sean Trivass is a freelance racing journalist with an extensive knowledge of the sport and the same can be said of our very own Matthew Newman, one of our tipsters and writers with a wealth of experience and insight to the world of racing.
As well as these three panellists, we will also be joined on the phone by Nigel Twiston-Davies, Daryl Jacob and Adrian Heskin. Nigel is another who needs very little introduction, with no less than seventeen Cheltenham Festival victories, including a Gold Cup win with Imperial Commander and most recently, an RSA Chase success with Blaklion last year. He also is a contributor for our website, providing us with great insight in his weekly column, exclusively for us. Daryl is a multiple Grade 1 winning jockey who has two Cheltenham Festival wins to his name and a Grand National, winning on Neptune Collonges in one of the best finishes to the race in recent memory. Last but by no means least, Adrian has been having a brilliant season since being retained by Tom George, with two Grade 2 victories to his name and is also a Cheltenham Festival winner, driving home Martello Tower to success in the 2015 Albert Bartlett.
