The countdown to the 2019 Cheltenham Festival starts here and we can't wait for the Cheltenham Races to start! 

The Jumps Racing Podcast bring you the first of their ante-post previews ahead of next month's Festival at Prestbury Park as they run the rule over the Cheltenham Gold Cup market. They discuss the bookmakers' favourite, Presenting Percy, pull out some intriguing stats and trends, and they look at the leading contenders for the blue riband event of British racing. 

Sean and Chris pick out their each-way shots for the Gold Cup, before predicting the finishing 1-2-3 for the big race. 

The A-To-Z series of cult heroes from the world of national hunt racing continues and they're on to the letter 'O'. This week's feature horse is 'One' who was a very popular grey that drew comparisons with the great Desert Orchid, and made history by becoming the first horse to win the King George and Queen Mother Champion Chase. Listen to the pod to hear more about this fans' favourite!

There's also a weekend preview as the lads look ahead to what is potentially a brilliant Saturday at Newbury, where there were likely to be plenty of Gold Cup pointers in the Denman Chase, while there's the Betfair Hurdle and Game Spirit Chase to enjoy. However, the worrying outbreak of equine flu leaves a shadow hanging over the weekend and we await to see if the fixtures will go ahead.

In the meantime, please do rate, review, subscribe and listen to The Jumps Racing Podcast - it is a Cheltenham Gold Cup bonanza!
