Betway ambassador Katie Walsh takes Nick Luck behind the scenes in this video guide to the 2020 Cheltenham Festival.

The countdown to the Cheltenham Festival is well-and-truly on, with just six days left until the 2020 meeting. Trainers and jockeys will be busy attending preview evening and finalising plans this week, while tipsters will be sharing their Cheltenham Festival tips ahead of “the greatest show on turf”.

All the tension and anticipation will come to a head on Tuesday, as the famous roar of the Cheltenham crowd sends the runners on their way in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. Punters will be able to watch the action on ITV and Racing TV. All 28 races can even be streamed on your Betway account, once a small bet has been placed on any horse running in that race.

While many of you reading this will feel you know everything about the Cheltenham Festival. But do you? Do you know what it’s like to shared a weighing room with some of the most successful jockeys to grace the sport? Do you know what it feels like to walk out onto the course ahead of your first Festival ride?

One who does is Katie Walsh. Walsh rode three winners at the Cheltenham Festival during her time in the saddle, with the last of her wins coming on Relegate in the 2018 Champion Bumper. Since her retirement, Walsh has become an ambassador for Betway, providing tips and expert insight in her weekly blog.

This week, Betway asked Katie Walsh to take Nick Luck behind the scenes at the Cheltenham Festival. Together, they enter the weighing rooms, had a look around the parade ring and took a ride around the famous track. Watch Betway’s full video here.
