    2013 Cheltenham Festival Preview Night Reports

    We now have a new 2014 Cheltenham Preview Night thread

    Can you post details of and reports from 2013 Preview Nights on this thread please. Going to change the title on the old 2012 thread so there is no confusion. Thanks.

    It is actually interesting to go have a glance through that one - you will be better able to judge who is worth listening to this time around. Definitely weren't too many opposing Hurricane Fly ( respect to Philip Hobbs) or Sizing Europe last year and you wont find too many putting Synchronised up for the Gold Cup either.

    I have gone to the preview in the Shepherd's Crook, near Chinnor, for the past few years but it seems the pub is now closed and up for sale. Anyone know of a preview near there for 2013 Festival? I have spotted the one in Stonor above but ideally looking for one closer to Chinnor or Princes Risborough. Thanks, John
