The Cheltenham Festival 2019 is so close now that we can almost smell it and the excitement builds further this week with the latest episode of The Jumps Racing Podcast.
The best national hunt podcast in the business is the perfect listen as we get ready for the Festival next month and this weeks show is a must listen.
Paul Ferguson joins our hosts, Sean Raymond and Chris Knight, to chat about the brand new Weatherbys Cheltenham Festival betting guide and also to preview the Supreme Novices Hurdle.
Paul goes through the leading contenders for the Festival opener with a fine tooth comb before making his pick for the big race, as we all look to get the best four days in sport off to a flying start.
The A-to-Z of jumps racing cult heroes series is always a favourite with listeners and this week the guys move on to Q and the legendary Quevega. Chris and Sean look back at the Festival record breaker and remember the finer moments of her glittering career.
There is also time to look back on a stunning weekend of racing as the lads assess the Ascot Chase win from Cyrname and discuss if he really is better than Altior...
Finally, there is a look ahead to the weekend racing with the Adonis Hurdle and the Dovecote at Kempton and the Bobbyjo Chase in Ireland, with the chance of seeing Gold Cup favourite Presenting Percy strut his stuff over fences for the first time this term.
