My Pod Or Yours: Cheltenham Preview Special5 min read
Part One of the My Pod Or Yours Cheltenham Festival Preview has three brilliant guests to share unique insight with you in the lead up to the biggest four days in racing.
First up, top trainer Philip Hobbs joins Michael and Luke to discuss his plans for his horses who are set to grace Prestbury Park next week. The star of his team is Defi Du Seuil who heads to the Champion Chase fresh from a brilliant season to date, having won all three of his starts. You can see his latest price here.
Hobbs also discusses his novices and gives us a bit of background on a couple for the handicaps. Guest Two is top tipster Kevin O’Malley. Not only does Kev get set a tricky quiz, but he also faces the challenge of picking out a lucky 15 for the Festival. He gives detailed reasoning behind his picks, which kick off with Supreme Novice favourite Shishkin who impressed plenty when hacking up last time out at Huntingdon. See the latest on that market here.
The final guest in part one is really well-placed to give Luke and Michael great insight from the Alan King stable. Dan Horseford has been assistant trainer at Barbury Castle Stables for a few years now and is well-positioned to guide you towards the best chances for a yard who know what it takes to score a winner at the Cheltenham Festival. Runners such as Who Dares Wins, who was a recent winner at Kempton, is discussed as well as some novice hurdlers to note.
Part two of the MyPodOrYours Cheltenham Festival Preview has three guests that are ideally placed to offer you some fantastic advice and insight as we approach the four days of fantastic action at Prestbury Park.
The first guest in part two is the fantastic commentator Richard Hoiles. Richard has been a key part of the ITV Racing team and knows more than most on how to find a Cheltenham winner, having called home plenty of the contenders in the last six months.
After Richard, we then have Sussex based rider Josh Moore who knows plenty about leading Triumph Hurdle hope Goshen. He tells the guys about him and the other likely Cheltenham runners from the Moore stable.
The final guest in part two is Sean Tiernan. He is the racing manager for the Brooks family who have some fantastic horses heading to the Festival this season. He gives a very bullish mention to one of their runners and shares his views on others that will be running in the Brooks light blue silks.
Part Three is the final part and has three more top guests. We kick off with Cheltenham Festival winning trainer Warren Greatrex. One of the most famous moments in his career came when Cole Hardon struck gold at a huge price in the Stayers Hurdle. He gives the guys an overview of his Festival team.
Next up is Katie O’Farrell. She is no stranger to big racing events having ridden winners at both the Galway Festival and the Easter meeting at Fairyhouse. Now working at Paul Nicholls, she shares her views on a few of the yard’s runners and nominates an interesting charity bet at a fair price.
The final guest on the podcast is ideal given the number of French runners that grace Cheltenham in March. Laurent Barbarin is best known for his flamboyant and interesting punditry on Sky Racing. He adds some flair and knowledge on French-bred horses.
