    I always attend the preview Monday evening before Champion hurdle day, organised by lets Live Racing syndicate and usually held at the Royal Oak, Prestbury, though last year was shifted to Cheltenham Town FC.
    It's a cracking night with a great panel (Tom Scu, Dickie Johnson, Andrew Tinkler and Davy Russell plus a bookie and trainer).
    Sadly I don't possess the equipment or ability to post a summary of the evening but I'd be happy to text (I've mastered that) or call someone on the Tue morning with an overview.

    I've done a few of these over the years, they had more value 10+ years ago when there were only about a dozen of them but the festival is now so huge there seems to be 2 or 3 a night.
    The Lets Live Racing one is more open and honest than most, the syndicate have a few horses and the jocks all ride for them so there is a relationship and they are all very honest with their views.
    Most of the mainstream ones are now shown live, the days of one being a stone ahead of the handicapper and shut away in a barn for a few months pending a gamble on the day are gone....

    Thanks Ista. I try to get to a couple but only because it heightens my enjoyment during the build up.

    Most of the reports we have had on here have been taking others twitter reports and doing a glorified cut and paste job. It takes a fair bit of time sorting the data but I ( with occasional help from lester) but feedback has generally been positive. I might put them in the betting forum this year so only registered users will have them.

    There have been a number of new and quality posters on here in the past year and thanks to you all for making the forum a much better one in 2015.

    I go to one each year and always look forward to it. The westmanstown preview night the week before Cheltenham. Usually has a brilliant lineup, Ruby, davy Russell, paddy power, pricewise amongst others.

    Davy Russell is serious entertainment, as can Ruby to be fair.
    Funniest panelist I ever saw was Paul Nolan, he can't get through a preview evening without disappearing for a Benson & Hedges and also battles his way through a dozen guinness but he is one funny fella, if you see his name on any panel this year I'd recommend you go along...
