The Off The Fence panel are back to review Saturday’s Ascot Chase as well as taking a look ahead to the Champion Chase and Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

In episode 13, Barry Geraghty, Tony Keenan and host Vanessa Ryle debate whether Fakir D’Oudairies is a genuine Ryanair Chase contender and also preview the Champion Chase.

The trio also take a look back at the performances of the enigmatic Goshen and Teahupoo, who looks set to run in the Champion Hurdle next month.

Meet the Off The Fence team

Barry Geraghty

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.

Vanessa Ryle

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’.

Tony Keenan’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.
