The National Hunt season is about to swing into full session with Cheltenham lurking this weekend and, to celebrate, bet365 and the Racing Post have produced The Big Jump Off season preview show.
The two-hour once-off show focuses on all the key talking points as the stars of the National Hunt season start to emerge from their summer slumber.
Host Dave Orton is joined by a stellar cast to discuss all the major divisions in the jumps sphere.
With the jumps season now taking over, a reminder that you can watch every race from the UK and Ireland via the bet365 live sports streaming service.
The Big Jump Off preview is available to watch on the link above, while read below for a guide to some of the fascinating content in the show.
Dave Orton is the man in the hosts chair for The Big Jump Off and joining him are three of the most respected judges in the lands.
Kicking off the show, Dave Orton talks Joe Chambers and Max McNeill about their hopes for the season.
Joe is racing manager to powerhouse owner Rich Ricci and talks about some of their established stars and possible new arrivals, while Max is a leading owner in his own right with horses in training at some of the top yards in Britain and Ireland and a forthright opinion on all things jumps racing.
The next part of the show dives into the main established divisions in the jumps code as they correlate to Cheltenham in March.
First up is Champion Hurdle division as the panel ponder whether or not anything will lay a blow on reigning champ Constitution Hill, the 4/9 favourite for more glory at Cheltenham on Tuesday 12th March. Are any of last season's novices good enough to trouble Nicky Henderson's superstar?
With two-time Queen Mother Champion Chase winner Energumene ruled out for the season by Willie Mullins, stablemate El Fabiolo is now 1/1 to inherit the crown, while Jonbon – second in the Arkle last season before winning the bet365 Celebration Chase at Sandown is 6/1. The team discuss what now looks a vacant throne in the two-mile chasing division.
The Stayers' Hurdle division is next and with veteran Sire Du Berlais scoring at Cheltenham and Aintree last spring, this is another division that could be set for chance come the spring. Teahupoo was second in the Cotswolds last time but could Gordon Elliott's 6/1 chance be poised to take over a division that lacks a star?
And then there is the Gold Cup itself, where Galopin Des Champs was imperious in March for Willie Mullins and Paul Townend. He was surprisingly beaten at Punchestown afterwards and is 2/1 to reign again in the Blue Riband on 15th March. The Big Jump Off panel asses the pretenders to his crown.
The panel also look into the novice hurdlers and novice chasers as they try to forecast what new names will be making headlines this jumps season.
And finally, the expert minds on The Big Jump Off will be revealing their 'Five to Follow' for the upcoming National Hunt season and also picking their 'Best Bet for the Season' as punters look to uncover some ante-post value.
Amongst the horses cropping up in that fascinating debate is Kitty's Light – a 20/1 chance to win the Grand National at Aintree on Saturday 13th April for Christian Williams.
