The Cheltenham Festival is one of the highlights of the National Hunt Season and an event that I look forward to every year.

This year we shall be celebrating with a special preview evening at the farm, in the company of an expert panel of racing personalities including Telegraph racing columnist Charlie Brooks, trainers Jonjo O’Neill and Graeme McPherson and jockeys Aidan Coleman and Paddy Brennan.

As well as an excellent supper, the evening will provide the opportunity to hear the panel members’ views on key upcoming Festival races, to discuss the prospects of the week’s runner and riders and hopefully to pick some winners.

The festival then begins on Tuesday 14th March and we shall be screening the live racing action in the Old Spot each day, along with highlights and re runs from the festival. It should be an exciting week.

The Cheltenham Preview Evening takes place from 7pm – 10pm on Sunday 12th March at our Daylesford café in Kingham. For more information and to book your ticket contact Michole Jeynes on 01608 731 700 or email
