Getting in on all the racing action and finding the top tips will benefit a Kerry charity during a local Cheltenham Preview Night.

From Tuesday March 15 to Friday March 18, there'll be four extraordinary days of racing at the popular UK race festival.

However, Killarney Racegoers Club are organising a preview night beforehand, on Wednesday March 9, and will be talking to a panel of guests to give punters the inside scoop.

It begins at 8.30pm sharp in the Fáilte Hotel and is set to benefit the Southwest Counselling Centre.

MC on the night will be Vince Casey.

The panel will include top racing pundit Paddy Wilmott, leading jockey Conor McNamara, racing tipster and analyst Killian Broderick and bookmaker Brendan Tyther.

"The Killarney Racegoers Club have been doing Cheltenham Preview nights since the 1990s," ," Vince told the Killarney Advertiser.

"Last year we did a virtual one and we are really looking forward to doing a live event again this year in the Fáilte. Paddy Wilmott has been on the panel with many years and has given punters some great winners at big prices, while Conor McNamara gave a 33/1 last year. Killian Broderick, another racing enthusiast is a shrewd judge and again looks to give value bets and has been very profitable to follow while Brendan Tyther, who is our only bookmaker in the club, will provide his insights along with providing some special bets on the night," he said.

"We are delighted to partner with Southwest Counselling Centre, who provide a fantastic service to our community and who are dependent on private donations. Last year we raised €1,800 which was spent on a new play area in the centre. While entry is free on the night we are asking people to make a donation to this wonderful cause via our GoFundMe page 'South West Counselling'. All donations will go to the charity."
