Cheltenham 2016. Day Four...

Day Three Results:
Bristol De Mai 5/1 - 2nd
Garde La Victoire - 4/1 - Fell

Not the best day yesterday. As De Mee ran ok at the price. Cole Harden led but didn't really assert any authority on the race so the price only dropped a point in running.

Nothing strong for today. I am looking at the Albert Bartlett NH at 2.50pm. It's not an easy race so small stakes. I am going to mix up some reverse forecasts or tricasts with Shantou Village, Barters Hill and Gangster. Bet them individually or e/w or however you want. A few quid will get you a decent payout on forecasts / tricasts so just a bit of fun really.

I will just mention Up For Review for a few pennies each way at 20/1. The latter may not the strongest Mullins runner in this race - but happy enough with the price.

Shantou Village, Barters Hill, Gangster - forecasts / tricasts / win etc.

Cheltenham 2016. Day Three...

Day Two Results:
Yorkhill 3/1 - won

Vyta Du Roc 10/1 e/w - unplaced.

Yorkhill did the business turning over the short priced fav. It was a great ride by Ruby but I have to confess that for a while I thought he might get himself boxed in on the rail. Anyway, in the end it wasn't a problem in a small field. Vyta Du Roc travelled nicely but was disappointing at the end of the race - but at least we avoided the two short priced favs in that race, which both lost.

Day Three:

JLT Novices Chase. 1.30pm:

Four runners at the head of the market here. Bristol De Mai, Garde La Victoire, Outlander and Black Hercules. I will go against Mullins' Black Hercules - so far I have avoided Mullins when he's lost and backed him when he's won, so let's hope that continues! I am reluctantly scratching off Outlander too - drying ground will probably be against him.

I can't separate the final two, Bristol De Mai and Garde La Victoire. I'm not in love with either horse but I think one of them will win. If you wanted to take one e/w it would probably be Bristol De Mai.

Bristol De Mai: 5/1
Garde La Victoire: 4/1

I haven't found any big prices this Cheltenham and I never usually bet at the shorter end of the market. I just haven't fancied anything at bigger prices. In desperation I will mention As De Mee at 28/1, in the same race, for pennies each way.

For those of you that want an in running trade, you need look no further than Cole Harden in the 3.30pm who is highly likely to lead or be up with pace as usual. He was a winner for me last year at 20/1 and this is his race.

Cheltenham 2016. Day Two...

Day One Results: Atior 4/1 e/w - won.

Day Two:

Neptune Investment Management NH. 1.30pm:
I am against Yarnworth at the prices and if you can get around 3/1 for Yorkhill that would be the bet.

Yorkhill: 11/4 or bigger.

RSA Chase. 2.10pm: I kind of wanted to be on Roi Des Franc (Mullins / Walsh) but I am not sure the ground will suit. More Of That probably wins this but he is short. No More Heroes could be the shorter price value against him especially if he drifts a bit more - but I am going to have a small each way bet on Vyta Du Roc.

Vyta Du Roc: 10/1 e/w.

That's it for today.

Cheltenham 2016. Day One...

Supreme Novices Hurdle. 1.30pm: I laid Min yesterday at 2/1. Too short. His price is now out 5/2 and I hope he drifts a bit more. I think he is one of the weaker Mullins' and I will probably keep the lay or just lay off the liability to £0.00 - but I won't be looking to profit on him for the win. If you are on at a bigger price though, obviously keep the bet.

Altior: 4/1 e/w - short price for an each way but my preference. Nothing else really for me at bigger prices.

Not really involved in anything else for today.

Cheltenham 2016...

At last Cheltenham is here! Best time of the year for me at work - not on the trading front - but in terms of letting my hair down...a whole year of constricting my emotions trading on racing and football is released during this week!

Just straight betting, watching the races and having fun - if I can make some money too, then great.

I've never had an unprofitable Cheltenham although last year could have been better.

I'll start posting my bets tomorrow and then each day through the festival.

Good luck!
