As always each year I post my Cheltenham Bets which you are free to follow at your own peril. It is one of my favourite sporting events of the year, I absolutely love the week and cannot wait for it to start.
We have had some nice winners over the years and also some beatings it is one of those kind of meetings. I get good info, often too much of it and often discard the wrong ones and it is hard to win. I am happy to throw a couple of K at the meeting each year for the excitement, obviously hoping I turn a profit. Most of the info is rom people I know in the game so i repeat up to you if you follow this.
I will post all my selections here and the results at then update results through the week. Hopefully get some ammo early to fire back at the rest of the week.
Day 2 – All Exchange Prices I took at Time Using Betdaq as Zero Comm – Only I don’t have betting accounts
As I state follow at your own peril, my money is on could be a day for Favs today some horrible small fields.
Forward – £564
Had strong word from a while back for Bob Olinger – that has been further confirmed this morn and is my main bet. Bravemansgame can run well and Keskonrisk is better than its odds suggest so a little on that also, shame only 7 go to post
Bob Olinger £150 Win 2.98 +£297
Keskonrisk £25 Win 23 -£25
No bet race for me but Monkfish wins this pulling a train, Dickie Diver for the speculative forecast
Proper race and the type I like to get involved in at the festival. 26 runners, JP strong armed and I believe he has backed Blue Sari over the last couple months even on two PU showings “ahem”. Backing all three of his Blue Sari, Birchdale and Palmers Hill. I also like Mullins’ Sayo at a big price. Happy St Patricks day
Blue Sari £60 Win 17- £40 Place 3.6 -£100
Birchdale £50 Win 18.5- £40 Place 4.2 -£90
Palmers Hill £40 Win 54 – £30 Place 12 -£70
Sayo £30 Win 60 – £30 Place 12 +£300
Chacun Pour Soi the odds on favourite and I am keen to take it on here, especially with its first visit to the track. I have two I am quite bullish about Rouge Vif way too big imo and Put The Kettle On I cannot see being involved. one where I could look stupid at 3.20 or a hero, thats why we are here, you pay your money and take your chance.
Rouge Vif £40 Win 25- £30 Place 5.0 -£70
Put The Kettle On £40 Win 12.5, £60 Place 2.62 +£557.20
Cross country nonsense but see Tiger get slayed – still agonising from the 2019 Tiger double, I’m not bitter. Just for a throwaway to watch something backing Le Breuil small based on trends.
Le Breuil £25 Win 16.5 – £25 Place 3.8 -£50 (Don’t even want to talk about it, up there with the worst £50 I have spent in my life)
Another proper race 19 runner handicap. I like Embittered with Rachael on board, looks a bit thrown in off this mark and ok round here. Bun Doran good round here has to be included at the price and Entoucas in a race JP likes makes up the betting here.
Embittered £60 Win 6.4 – £40 Place 2.18 -£100
Bun Doran £30 Win 40 – £20 Place 8 -£50
Entoucas £40 Win 11 -£20 Place 3 –£0
My wheelbarrow is now overflowing with cash and I like one here. Can’t see past the top two in betting Kilcruit and Sir Gerhard and provided no untoward shenanigans (oh what am I saying) then I like Sir Gerhard to hose up and tip the barrow over for me as it can’t take any more.
Sir Gerhard £150 Win 3.25 +£337.5
