The pick of the week's racing news

Best of the Rest… 8th March 2016

This time next week we'll be preparing for Super Tuesday at the Cheltenham Festival. No apologies then that this post features almost exclusively content pertaining to that special meeting.

Myself, Gavin Priestley and a group of others you might know all put our heads together to answer some of the burning questions about the Festival... Our answers are here.

It wouldn't normally be my place to promote other websites as a whole (rather than a single post), but the ATR Cheltenham site is an exception, because it is exceptional. Stable tours, stats, trends, and more. If you haven't seen it, take a look. They've really done an amazing job with this. Cheltenham megasite here.

Fair warning: this takes some reading. It is also worth the time, as Lydia covers the last month or so of National Hunt action, taking in a huge number of Festival preps, and adds a few more strings to her ante-post bow.

Here's Lydia.

    TILT! I’ve just spent half a day Hislopsided and what an entertaining girl is our Lydia. Draw the curtains, turn the lights low and get stuck into her prose – with a bottle of prosecco, within reach, perhaps?
    Though her tipple is Guinness, so black velvet would be appropriate.
