With less than a week to go until the tape rises for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, Luke Elder and Calum Madell are joined by special guest and twice Cheltenham Festival winning jockey Nick Scholfield to cover the four Championship races at this year’s meeting. Nick also answers questions put to him about his likely rides including leading Triumph Hurdle contender Zubayr and other horses at the yard of champion trainer Paul Nicholls.
Luke Elder, Calum Madell and Adam Webb return this week to preview an underwhelming Super Saturday with the main attraction being the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury with 22 runners heading to post including Modus who has looked to have been laid out with this race in mind since early in the season. Warwick also stages an interesting renewal of the Kingmaker in which L’Ami Serge bids to cement his unbeaten record over fences and book his place at the Cheltenham Festival. Good luck if you’re having a bet tomorrow!
Our first Cheltenham Festival 2015 preview kicked off with a bang with special guest Nick Scholfield and surprise special guest Sam Twiston-Davies who joined us very briefly to preview the four Championship races that take place next month.
Thank you for all the contributions to the show, we shall be back as usual on Friday covering the BetBright Chase from Kempton and we shall continue our Festival previews next week. We shall let you know which races on Twitter and on the blog so you can get your questions to us.
