Nick is joined by writer and broadcaster Lydia Hislop to discuss the latest news and events from around the racing world. They lead with the entry for the Dublin Racing Festival – stellar, but notable for its absence of UK-based runners. Nigel Twiston-Davies, trainer of one of the two British entries, joins the conversation to give his view. Looking ahead to Saturday’s racing, Nick catches up with Chris Honour, who talks while on board his Kempton hopeful Tile Tapper, while also commenting on the chances of Warwick Classic Chase fancy Grumpy Charley. Later in the show, Nick and Lydia reflect on the strong attendances from the Christmas period, while George Baker drops in from Bahrain, Megan O’Leary gives us the latest on the Godolphin Flying Start, and NIcki Strong introduces the new Racing Welfare App.
