The 2021 Cheltenham Festival is done and dusted and Barry Geraghty, Tony Keenan and Vanessa Ryle are here to review a stellar week of jump racing on Off The Fence! The team look back on the best of the action; the amazing performances of Honeysuckle, Rachael Blackmore and Henry de Bromhead, the stunning displays from Shishkin, Appreciate It and Bob Olinger and the crowning glory of Minella Indo landing the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Barry, Tony and Vanessa also look to the future and try to predict what we might see in the big jumps meetings to come following Cheltenham.
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.
