National Hunt fans are counting down the days until the 2019 Cheltenham Festival kicks off on March 12 with the Supreme Novices' Hurdle acting as the traditional curtain-raiser to the 'Greatest Show On Turf', where racing supporters are treated to four sensational days of top notch jumping action.

FansBet Racing are hosting their inaugural Cheltenham Festival preview night on Tuesday 26th February at 7:30pm 'in conjunction' with The Sportsman and they have put together a sensational guest panel to discuss all things Cheltenham.


FansBet ambassador and top class National Hunt jockey Brian Hughes will be one of the star attractions on the panel, while John 'Shark' Hanlon will provide some vital training insight ahead of the four-day jumping extravaganza.

Conor O'Hehir, a well-known figure on the Irish racing scene will be the third panellist, while the quality quartet is completed by former Channel 4 and current RTE presenter Tom Lee, who is a die-hard racing fan and has somewhat of a soft spot for Cheltenham Gold Cup favourite Presenting Percy.

So, with an esteemed panel put together it will deliver a magnificent evening of Cheltenham Festival chat and the evening will be streamed live by The Sportsman (@TheSportsman) on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

The preview will kick off at 7:30pm and go right through until 9:00pm, so if you want some vital festival clues then look no further than this excellent Cheltenham Festival Preview Night.
