    I’m sure many of you have heard of the show ‘ upping the ante’ created by Racing Post. Has been going a few seasons as far as I am aware.

    I don’t know about you guys but I think it’s just a superb show, it’s on YouTube every week from October to the Cheltenham festival.

    I just think the show is a terrific watch and the format of it all is superb and the hosts are great. David Jennings and Gavin Lynch.

    Of course I don’t agree with all of their selections but they do a great analysis and it’s just a a brilliant watch.

    I know Racing TV do a similar one called road to Cheltenham and I believe attheraces have recently started one now as they seem popular.

    Anyone who hasn’t seen them then I fully recommend them especially if you have Cheltenham fever like me !! It’s on racing post YouTube channel

    The ATR version, Off The Fence, is held back by the presenter, Vanessa Ryle. She is terrible.

    Yeah, enjoy it, it’s a good watch.

    Could do without the “questions from the crowd” bit, which very often goes off topic, but that would be a very minor gripe.

    It’ll no doubt disappear up it’s own backside as it grows in popularity, but for the time being, it’s very good.

    Yes its very well done

    Road to Cheltenham is good too, listening to Ruby’s breakdown of the weeks best races can never be a bad thing

    I like watching it sometimes. Gavin comes across with a bit more reasoning behind his tips and they are more predictable, whereas Dave is more chancey with his selections and unlikely to make much gain, but its a good mix of opinions for the viewers to watch even if you don’t agree with them.
