    So the racing kicks off in about an hour, anyone having anything today ?

    Should be an interesting day with the way the weather has been!

    First race: Supreme Novices Hurdle
    £25 ew Felix Desjy @ 25/1
    £20 win Vision D’Honneur @ 12/1

    Bet365 match your first race bet as a free bet in the champion hurdle só I’ve used that for £50 win on Buveur D’Air @ 11/4

    Never win on the horses, so only bet if I actually go to a meet

    Will just do a small bet on the gold cup I reckon.

    Fair play, that’s what i tend to do nowadays but made an exception for Cheltenham.

    Took a well deserved ‘admin day’ to stay at home and watch it

    Caught a buzz and backed Articulum and Clondaw Castle both EW. Only a couple of quid each but we'll take it.

    Had a disaster yesterday.

    I'm also using the Skybet first bet deal so I've put £20 on Easy Game in the first today at 8/1. I've read he likes the soft/heavy ground and it will definitely be that today.

    I've also done a 25p e/w accumulator for the remaining 6 races:

    2:10 - Santini - 3/1
    2:50 - Killultlagh Vic 12/1
    3:30 - Min - 4/1
    4:10 - Tiger Roll - 11/10
    4:50 - Band of Outlaws - 6/1
    5:30 - Envoi Allen - 7/2

    Returns £4k - fingers crossed :whistle

    Finished £500 up yesterday, fingers crossed for more of the same but I normally struggle on day two for some reason.

    Hoping that it follows last year where Gordon Elliot didn’t get a win on day one but then dominated day two

    Battleoverdoyen £50 win 10/3
    Galvin £25 ew 16/1

    £50 free bet used for £25 ew on politologue 25/1 in the champion chase

    Wasn’t going to gamble over Cheltenham, however did the £20 money back on Sky. Didn’t win but the £20 in my account tempted me too much so ended up having a flutter. Not going crazy but little bets

    £20 on Tiger Roll returns £47.50
    £27.50 on Band of Outlaws to place returns £55
    £25 Either Blue Sari or Envoi Allen to win returns £56.

    Could have won a lot more money if I’d taken risks with the second two bets, but can’t complain with £80 profit on a day where I wasn’t going to bet at all.

    Nightmare today :no:

    ****ing misery guts at work dissuaded us from going huge in the syndicate on Altior and then we ****ed up the Tiger Roll bet and only ended up on individual bets and I was down to my last tenner :cry:

    I like the look of Voix Du Reve.

    Mullins & Walsh is normally a pretty good combo and it’s odds have came in massively already (14/1->13/2 on Sky).

    That or one of the two big favourites for me. Think my £20 is edging towards Defi De Seuil. Might take a gamble and go £20 E/W on it.

    :laugh: can’t imagine how stressful managing a bookies must be for weeks like this. Must be manic as f*ck.

    Ladbrokes have been giving everyone a free £1 bet every day of Cheltenham so I’ve been doing stupid 7 fold bets every day. 50p E/W. Had 6 out of 7 come in today. Only the 14:50 let me down. Wouldn’t have been much, but still. :cry:
