John McCririck speaks to Heart

It wouldn't be Cheltenham Race Week without the legend that is John McCririck.

The racing pundit is one of the country's most famous sporting faces and he is certainly not afraid to tell it how it is.

Instantly recognisable with his rather large sideburns and deerstalker hat, he's also done his fair share of reality TV, including  Celebrity Big Brother and Wife Swap. But every March there is only one place you will find him, at Prestbury Park.

You will have seen him waving his hands around on TV, apparently it's all to do with the odds, we got him to explain what it all means:

According to John, going to the races isn't just about horses, gambling and drink, it is a pretty good place to pull as well!
