Exeter Racecourse is counting down the days to the Cheltenham Festival with its preview evening, which takes place on Thursday, February 24.

The all star line up for the event, which is sponsored by bookmakers Paddy Power, includes champion trainer Paul Nicholls, top Westcountry trainers Philip Hobbs, David Pipe and Nick Williams, the Racing Post’s Andrew King and Paddy Power.

David Pipe, who trained two Festival winners last year, said: “The preview evenings are a lot of fun. It’s a great chance for the audience to ask us about our horses and our hopes for the Festival and hopefully, between us., we’ll give them a winner or two.”

The bar opens at 6pm, with host for the evening Zoey Bird getting the panel under way with their verdicts for the Festival at 7pm. Tickets for the evening cost £20 per person and include a hot, one-course supper. To book call the racecourse on (01392) 832599. Places are limited and early booking is advised.
