Katie Walsh’s behind the scenes video guide to Cheltenham

Katie Walsh Betway Cheltenham Festival video

With the 2020 Cheltenham Festival no less than a week away, Betway ambassador Katie Walsh takes Nick Luck behind the scenes at Prestbury Park in this fantastic video.

The countdown to the 2020 Cheltenham Festival is well-and-truly on, with just six days left until this year’s meeting gets underway. The leading protagonists at this year’s Festival will be very busy this week, attending Cheltenham Festival preview evenings and finalising plans ahead of “the greatest show on turf”.

All the planning and waiting will come to an end on Tuesday, as the famous roar of the Cheltenham faithful sends the runners on their way in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. Punters will be able to watch the best of the action on ITV, Racing TV and races can even be streamed on your Betway account, once a small bet has been placed on any horse running in that race, which might win if you’ve followed our Cheltenham Festival tips.

While many of you reading this will feel you know the Cheltenham Festival inside out. But do you? Do you know what it’s like to share a weighing room with some of the most successful jockeys in Festival history? Do you know what it feels like to hear the applause of hundreds of passionate fans as you do the rounds in the winners’ enclosure?

Someone who does is Katie Walsh. Walsh rode three winners at the Cheltenham Festival during her time in the saddle, with the most recent of those coming on Relegate in the 2018 Champion Bumper. Since hanging up her saddle, Walsh has become an ambassador for bookmaker’s Betway, providing tips and insight in her weekly blog.

This week, Betway ask Katie Walsh to take racing presenter Nick Luck behind the scenes at the Cheltenham Festival. Together, they enter the weighting rooms, revisit the parade ring and take a ride around the famous track. Watch Betway’s full video here…
