Alex Hammond who is the normal racing presenter on Sky Sports News is looking forward to her new presenting role.

(Credit Racing Post) Hammond said: “It’s very exciting and horseracing is very much close to my heart. I have a great passion for the sport.

"I’ve been at Sky for 15 years and, while it’s emotional to leave Sky Sports News, I’m very much looking forward to the challenge ahead."

Sky will also have the ability to have full exclusivity at French racecourses, where there will be a presenter at every meeting that they televise.
