Official Preview – live blog starts soon

I’m all hooked up in The Centaur, Cheltenham racecourse, ready to bring you live coverage of tonight’s Official Preview, sponsored by Paddy Power. The fun starts at 7.30pm. Before that, a quick weather update -a mainly sunny day with a heavy shower mid-afternoon. I hope to get accurate and up to date going news from the horses mouth, the Clerk of the Course later. There is some horrendous weather forecast for Sunday and Monday so let’s hope it doesn’t materialise. Back online in an hour…unless anything dramatic happens before then. In the meantime I’m off to the bar.
