We won’t be doing a live Broadcast this year because we’re producing the Open Meeting Guides which you can purchase here. But you can also watch our Paddy Power Gold Cup Preview (part 1 of our Season Preview Video) on JPFestival.com TV. For the first time we’ll be broadcasting a live Open Meeting Wrap on Tuesday 19 November where we’ll review the meeting and flag up horses to note.
