They constitute a serious line up of horse racing experts with a world of knowledge.

Representatives of David Marnane Racing and McGettigans will be on hand to “meet and greet” and they will be hoping this is the first of many such nights allowing us to become better informed about the horses and hear some snippets of information we would not usually be exposed to.

The panels include Gary O Brien — Irelands Voice of Racing, Laura King- Dubai Racing Channel, Pat Cummins — Hong Kong Racing, Martin Harley — Group 1 winning jockey, and
