However, the upwardly mobile Hill Barn handler heads to Prestbury Park with a trio of novices hoping to make a major [...]

Jack Quinlan – Festival First Timers

 Jack Quinlan, the jockey based in Newmarket. The hub of racing. To the untrained brain it would be fair to assume it was just another 8st, 5ft flat rider. However, Quinlan is in the privileged position of having first pick on the towns select squadron of jumpers and in particular, the man in the [...]

Bryony Frost has been one of the revelations of the season and alongside her beloved ‘Blackie’ (Black Corton) have become the darlings of Saturday afternoon’s ITV coverage throughout the cold, wet winter months.

Paul Nicholls is a man who has experienced both unbelievable highs and despairing lows at the Cheltenham Festival.

Ciaran Gethings – Festival First Timers

Ciaran Gethings has had an interesting career in the saddle in his short and now flourishing career.

The North Yorkshire racing hub of Middleham has [...]

Dreaming Of A Festival Handicap

A plethora of bookmakers are now offering ‘non runner, no bet’ concessions on all races at the Cheltenham Festival which may have sucked the value out of the markets for the Graded races at Prestbury Park.
