Nick Luck Daily Ep 169 – Hurdles and Fences

Nick is joined by RTE and Racing TV broadcaster Jane Mangan to discuss the myriad of issues facing Irish competitors and attendees ahead of this year’s Cheltenham Festival, from the non-participation of amateur riders to the relatively low entry in the handicaps to the sporting bubble and PCR requirements for jockeys and those responsible for the visiting horses. Nick talks to Irish Point to Point expert Richard Pugh about the consequences of the temporary suspension of that branch of the sport in Ireland. Later in this edition, Nick reminisces with rider Charlie Swan about Danoli’s Festival triumph as they pay tribute to the horse’s trainer Tom Foley, who died yesterday, while Alan King drops in to talk about his hopes for the weekend, including leading Triumph Hurdle fancy Tritonic.
