Vanessa Ryle, Barry Geraghty and Tony Keenan are back for another Off The Fence to review a weekend which saw Paul Nicholls domination, a live Triumph Hurdle contender emerge in Adagio and a proper winner of the Coral Welsh Grand National in Secret Reprieve.
The team also discuss some of your questions as we look forward to the Cheltenham Festival, as well as looking ahead to Grade 1 action in Ireland.
THE OFF THE FENCE TEAM
Now retired after a 24 year career in the saddle which yielded 43 Cheltenham Festival successes, Gold Cup and Grand National-winning jockey Barry Geraghty returns to At The Races, with whom he enjoyed a fruitful relationship as ambassador and columnist between 2012 and 2019.
An iconic National Hunt rider still well connected and riding work at some of the sport’s biggest yards, Barry has won all there is to win in jumps racing and is sure to give viewers Off The Fence raw insight each week.
A popular member of the Sky Sports Racing on-course presenter team who also fronts The Bloodstock Show, host Vanessa is an avid Jumps racing fan, and will be tasked each week with steering her analyst colleagues ‘Off The Fence’.
attheraces.com’s resident Irish tipster and analyst, Tony Keenan has also played a leading role alongside Barry in ATR’s Cheltenham Preview Nights in Dublin since 2017. As sharp-tongued as he is sharp-minded, Tony’s regular unique takes and no-nonsense delivery will no doubt keep Off The Fence viewers (and Barry and Vanessa!) on their toes.
