There are less than seven weeks to go until Cheltenham Festival and there is plenty to look forward to in this week's Jumps Racing Podcast as the team take a look ahead to the Cheltenham Races at this weekend's Trials Day.

There are some cracking races in store at Prestbury Park as we envisage a quality line-up for the Cleeve Hurdle, a ding-dong battle in the Cotswold Chase and an intriguing Ballymore Classic Novices Hurdle. Listen to the pod to hear what they make of the action prior to a jam-packed weekend that also includes the River Don Novices Hurdle and Sky Bet Chase at Doncaster.

The pod also welcomes a very special guest as top jockey, Danny Cook, talks about Midnight Shadow ahead of their bid for glory in Saturday's Cleeve Hurdle, while he also 'bigs up' the chances of potential Gold Cup contender Definitly Red. 

The A-To-Z series of national hunt cult heroes continues with the letter 'M' and this is a real favourite of horse racing fans. The latest cult hero is something of a character as he was a bit of a rogue and he still has his own Twitter account. Listen to the latest podcast below as the lads take a trip down memory lane to remember a 'Mad' character...

That's not all, the podcast gets underway by looking back at last weekend's action, which included some impressive winners at Thurles in Ireland, as well as the sight of Altior extending his unbeaten run over obstacles to 17 races. Nicky Henderson' star is now an odds-on jolly for the Queen Mother Champion Chase.
