Cheltenham ’21 – Members bets Review

Cheltenham 2021 Members bets Review There is no getting away from the fact that the members advice for Cheltenham was not good enough. Winners were few and literally far between, with hindsight, thirty plus advised bets was too much. It’s always nice to have the Gold Cup winner and Minella Indo (WON 9/1) was the […]

Cheltenham ’21 ante-post review

Cheltenham ante-post selections I wrote a preview with the intention of highlighting a bit of value, once firms were going non-runner, no bet. There are usually some opportunities to be had from several angles: each-way on races that look like cutting-up with fewer declarations; favourites that potentially will shorten even further on the day; runners […]

Cheltenham Preview -Day 4

Friday Triumph Hurdle “There are lies, damn lies, and statistics” – after a hat-trick of winning favourites in the middle of the last decade, but the last three winners have been 9/1, 20/1 and 12/1. How does that tell the whole story when Goshen was sent off 5/2 favourite last year, and should have won […]

Cheltenham Preview Day 3

Thursday Marsh Novices Chase Not only has Envoi Allen been favourite for the race since a market opened, but he also heads the market now with his two main rivals unlikely to line-up. The Mullins pair, Monkfish and Enurgemene both short for the three-miler and the Arkle respectively. That leaves his main market rivals as […]

Cheltenham Preview Day 2

Wednesday Ballymore Novices Hurdle I think Gallard De Mesnil was favourite shortly after his impressive win at the Dublin Festival but Bob Ollinger now heads the market. While I wouldn’t argue with the obvious claims of both of them, I just feel that the value now has to be Bravemansgame. A winner of a grade […]

Cheltenham prior years bets

2020 Gold Cup “Al Boum Photo would be the first since Best Mate to retain the crown and has certainly been campaigned in a similar way to the triple Gold Cup winner with just the one run in a race well below his grade, the Grade 3 Savills Chase at Tramore. He was magnificent in […]

Members that joined before last summer, may already be on some hotpots that were highlighted on the ‘Jumpers To Follow’ posted before the NH season started including: Monkfish “Expected to go novice chasing next season, he looks likely to be one of the leading lights for the RSA [now Brown Advisory]” 8/11 fav for Brown […]

Cheltenham Preview – Day 1

Cheltenham 2021 – Ante-post thoughts I have reined-in my ante-post punting in recent years, yes, it is great clutching a virtual betting slip with 33/1 on a Cheltenham favourite, but I no longer like going into meetings already down on the book due to non-runners. That said, when bookies go NRNB (or NRMB) there is […]
