Ahead of the 2022 Cheltenham Festival, we have paired football stars together with their racing counterparts to help them prepare for the the biggest week in horse racing betting.

In episode three, leading football commentator Peter Drury talks to his ITV Racing opposite number Richard Hoiles about what it takes to be a commentator at the Festival.

The topics they cover include:

  • The privilege of working on something you are also a fan of
  • The preparation that goes into learning the names of up to 90 different horses
