EP:39 Hong Kong & Cheltenham Outsiders

Unfortunately, the weather is the winner this weekend, with both Newbury & Warwick calling off their meetings. Warwick will now race on Monday with Newbury being transferred to next Sunday.

Trainer Harry Fry still intends to run a couple of his horses in the re-arranged fixtures and we talk to him today. We also discuss the chances of Metier running in the Supreme at next month’s Cheltenham Festival.

City AM racing editor Bill Esdaile looks back at the magnificent Dublin Racing festival in Leopardstown last weekend and has a couple of bigger priced ante post tips for Cheltenham with Wally Pyrah looking at Sunday’s Hong Kong race meeting. Hosted by Chris Barnett.
