Racing UK analysts Niall Hannity and Mark Howard will be providing their expert guidance while our Irish correspondent Donn McClean will take us through the leading contenders and potential hidden gems among their raiding party.

Sky Bet Racing PR manager Michael Shinners has the betting angles and it will be chaired by sportinglife.com editor Dave Ord.

The doors open at 7pm and video interviews with leading trainers will be played on the big screen. There will be exclusive free bet opportunities and Price Boosts on the night along with the chance to win a VIP trip to the Festival itself and some big prizes, including free Sky TV for a year, in a cash raffle. Proceeds from that will go to New Beginnings, a charity that rehabilitates and re-homes former racehorses.
