Coral to broadcast live Cheltenham Preview online on Sunday night

| 07.03.2014

Coral will on Sunday broadcast its first ever live online Cheltenham Festival preview show.

A panel chaired by Channel Four Racing presenter, Nick Luck, will provide insight and tips on all 27 races during a two-hour webcast from 7pm on Sunday 9th March to help Coral customers and racing fans make their Cheltenham selections.

Luck will be joined by Channel 4’s Graham Cunningham, racing pundit Mark ‘The Couch’ Winstanley and Coral’s PR director Simon Clare at the company’s headquarters overlooking the Olympic Park in Stratford, East London.

Clare is confident that the webcast will be a success. He said: “We wanted to take the most traditional of events, the Cheltenham Festival preview, and deliver it to racing fans in the most modern of ways, via the internet. This way we get to entertain and inform thousands of people rather than hundreds, and they don’t have to leave the comfort of their own living rooms.

“Sunday evening is the perfect time for those who’ll be making their way to Cheltenham during the week or looking to have a bet on the races.

“By live streaming it we will be able to deliver a quality show packed with informed opinion and great trading offers to the widest possible audience.

“It will be a must for all punters looking for last minute tips and outstanding value – and it will certainly provide far better viewing than the Sunday night period dramas!”

The show will be beamed live from Coral’s trading floor between 7pm and 9pm. Featuring exclusive price offers throughout, it will be hosted on a special website and promoted from the Coral homepage,, and via @Coral the bookmaker’s twitter page.
