Next week thousands of racegoers will head to Gloucestershire for the most important week in the National Hunt calendar — the Cheltenham Festival (10-13 March 2015).

But if you can’t make it — or can’t face the crowds — there’s no need to miss the action.

Channel 4 Racing will be live at the course, with the Morning Line show (8-9am), live afternoon racing (12.35-4.20pm) and then an evening highlights package (0.00-0.50am).

The team will be bringing you each day’s news, tips and interviews.

And if you’re not near a TV you can still keep up to date with the action by listening to BBC Radio 5 Live.

Tuesday 10 March: 1–4pm

Wednesday 11 March: 1–4pm
