The Off The Fence panel returns this week to take a look at the Cheltenham Gold Cup, Stayers’ Hurdle and answer your questions!
In Episode 14, Barry Geraghty, Tony Keenan and host Vanessa Ryle debate whether Al Boom Photo is still good enough to clinch a third Gold Cup and fend off young rivals Galvin, Minella Indo and Conflated.
The trio also take a look at a competitive Stayers’ Hurdle and answer all your questions.
Meet the Off The Fence team
Now retired after a 24-year career in the saddle that yielded 43 Cheltenham Festival successes, Gold Cup and Grand National winning jockey Barry Geraghty returns to At The Races, with whom he enjoyed a fruitful relationship in as an ambassador and columnist between 2012 and 2019.
An iconic National Hunt racer still well-connected and working at some of the sport’s biggest yards, Barry has won everything there is to win in jump racing and is sure to give Off The Fence viewers raw insight every week.
A popular member of Sky Sports Racing’s on-course presenting team who also run The Bloodstock Show, host Vanessa is an avid jump racer and will be tasked with leading her fellow ‘Off The Fence’ analysts each week.
Irish resident tipster and analyst for attheraces.com, Tony Keenan, has also played a prominent role alongside Barry in ATR’s Cheltenham Preview Nights in Dublin since 2017.
As sharp as he is quick-witted, Tony’s steady single takes and no-nonsense delivery will no doubt keep Off The Fence viewers (and Barry and Vanessa!) on their toes.
