Can Faugheen The Machine Turn On The Style In The Stayers Hurdle?
The Jumps Racing Podcast continues apace and this week's edition features a preview of the Stayers Hurdle, which promises to be one of the most interesting Cheltenham races.
Raced on the third day of the Cheltenham Festival - Thursday 14th March - it is Paisley Park who is the bookmakers' favourite and that price shortened following the news that the defending champion, Penhill, would not be heading to Prestbury Park.
Ironically, the news of Penhill's absence broke just 17 seconds after the latest edition of The Jumps Racing Podcast went live but it is still well worth a listen as Sean Raymond, the editor of JumpsRacing.co.uk, picks his likely winner and a tempting long shot.
This week's podcast also features a Cheltenham Festival ticket giveaway - listen to the pod to find out how you could be right there in the mix at Cheltenham on the opening day of the greatest meeting on turf!
Sean and Chris run the rule over three Festival favourites to take on this year and there is also time to look back at last weekend's action, which featured eye-catching performances from the likes of Fusil Raffles and Rathvinden, although Gold Cup favourite Presenting Percy was again nowhere to be seen.
The A-To-Z series of cult racing heroes continues with the letter 'R' and this week's legend is a hugely popular grey who won the Champion Hurdle.
