    Er, this would not be a preview night per se.

    More an opportunity for a good old chinwag about Cheltenham, the universe and everything over a few beers, with perhaps a bit more focus to it than just a conventional p1ss-up.

    It’s all good Pruf – either way racing and alcohol are a great mix :)

    I’d be up for this – I’m always up for a good beer and a yak. Great idea Prufrock.

    Ask RP if they’ll give it the Video/ Audio treatment Pru and put it on website or maybe someone could arrange for Highflyer productions to come along and record it for screening on RUK

    " TRF (Southern) do Cheltenham and the Universe" sounds like good entertainment to me

    …in essence, the same sort of set-up as we had for the TRF Awards brainstorming sesh a couple of months back. Do you have anywhere particularly already in mind, Pruf?

    PS If we’re honest, we all know that the real highlight during Cheltenham week is the 4m march of the living dead handicap chase at Hexham. A proper treat and no mistake!

    It’s always heartening to know that I’m not the only one who looks forward to these fine contests! Hexham Four Miler, Highland National at Perth, Veterans’ Chase at Cartmel…..jockeys in woolly jumpers, battered old horseboxes, ……Marvellous!

    Amen to that, Rob. There’s not too many days on the calendar I enjoy more than the last Saturday evening in May – with the Veteran’s National at Cartmel and the Pertemps Trophy (Horse and Hound as was) at Stratford, what’s not to like?

    I may come along too if – a) I’m let out for the night (feasible), and b) there is a suitable train service from Northamptonshire to London (unlikely!). I too may be able to offer some minor pearls of wisdom on the various merits of the Foxhunters runners, if nothing else.

    Sounds like a great idea Pru – an annual TRF Cheltenham Preview evening.

    Can’t make it this time around but if it goes OK then we could do something a little more structured for next year and perhaps get a sponsor and a guest or two.

    Arranging a forum chinwag date after some of the other preview nights would make sense – forumites could report back and compare notes?

    I’ve been informed the winner runs tommorow HJ :wink:
