BETDAQ, the global betting exchange, are hosting a Cheltenham Festival Preview evening at Kempton Park on Wednesday to give punters the chance to pick some horses to follow at the Cheltenham Festival.

Following twilight racing on the all weather track at Kempton Park, a special panel of racing experts will provide race fans with an informed view of the key races at the 2012 Festival.

The evening will be hosted by the Mail on Sunday’s racing correspondent Jonathan Powell, who will offer an insight into the most powerful stable in England as he is a regular visitor to the all-conquering yard of Paul Nicholls.

The panel of experts joining Powell includes Gold Cup winning jockey Paddy Brennan, who is looking forward to riding some key horses at the Festival, and National Hunt jockey Andrew Thornton, who rode the Paul Nicholls-trained See More Business to victory in the King George VI Chase at Kempton in 1997 and Cool Dawn to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 1998.

Grand National winning jockey Brendan Powell, who has turned his hand to training, notching up his first winner with My Galliano at Kempton in September 2000, and Trevor Dunne, BETDAQ's Key Account Manager for Ireland & the UK, round off the panel.

The first race on the day is at 5.40pm and the last at 8.40pm.

The Festival preview, in the ground floor of the newly refurbished Grandstand, will begin after the penultimate race at 8.10pm. Entry is free with racecourse admission.

All racegoers attending the preview will be treated to complimentary nibbles, courtesy of BETDAQ, and there will be an opportunity to win a year's Racing UK subscription, worth £240.

Tickets, with entry to the Festival preview, cost £12 or just £9.60 if purchased in advance via or the ticket hotline on 0844 579 3008.
