The Cheltenham Festival is fast approaching

Make sure you are logged on to sportinglife.com at 1500 GMT on Friday, when we'll unveil a special Cheltenham Festival Flash Boost from Sky Bet.

The pinnacle of the National Hunt season is just days away now and our coverage will step up a gear on Saturday, when Ben Linfoot answers some of the key Cheltenham questions, before our horse-by-horse guide to the Champion Hurdle is revealed on Sunday.

But first, Sky Bet will be offering enhanced odds about one firm favourite for a limited time only. The horse in question is currently odds-on for its Festival target, but you'll be given the chance to back it at odds-against.
