Cheltenham is the pinnacle of the National Hunt Calendar and whether you’re a Groom or an Owner, Trainer or a Fan; everything is centered March.
For Jockeys, riding at the Mecca of Jumps Racing really is the pinnacle of their career and they experience the Festival like no one else. As always, the Irish will be out in full force in 2018, with the likes of Jessica Harringotn, Gordon Elliott and Willie Mullins bringing the best horses and jockeys over in the hope of Festival glory.

A vital part of the Mullins Machine and sure to ride some excellent horses across the week, Paul Townend gives us an insight into ‘Cheltenham Through The Eyes Of… A Jockey’, in the second episode of this BetBright Series.
