WITH the dust now settled another outstanding Cheltenham Festival I thought I’d look back on one of the most exciting weeks in the betting calendar to review our tipsters, competitions and how punter fared versus the bookies. Firstly, let’s show a bit of sympathy with the bookies (not!). They...
Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Chase The ‘get out’ stakes – one last chance to recoup some cash from the bookies 2 miles Handicap Chase I managed to pick the winner in this last year and there’s no better feeling than finishing off on a winner but it’s a tricky...
Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle 4.50pm Run over 2 miles 4 furlongs Only conditional jockeys can ride (young jockeys at the start of their careers) Hurdle race This race is often targeted by a trainer who knows he or she has a well handicapped horse but also knows...
St James Place Foxhunter Chase 4.10pm The ‘Gold Cup for amateurs’ 3 miles 2 furlongs Lower quality horses All amateur jockeys The Foxhunter gets a bit of a bad rep given the poorer quality of horses that are usually involved but I think it adds to the romance of...
Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup 3.30pm The coup de grace in the National Hunt world This is the horse that every trainer, owner and jockey wants to win, even more than the Grand National 3 miles 2 furlongs Run over fences Anyone who knows me or has followed my previews...
Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle 2.50pm Hurdles Almost 3 miles This is one for the best young hurdlers over a longer distance (stayers) There are question marks over how many of these will stay the trip coming up the hill at the end of the gruelling 3 miles because the...
Vincent O’Brien County Handicap Hurdle 2.10pm Run over hurdles Competitive handicap Run over 2 miles so a good position at the start is important and they will go at a fierce pace Your race can be over before it has begun here and it’s not a race that I...
A GLORIOUS St Patrick’s Day today which started very shakily – Zabana didn’t even get past the tape at the start before Davy Russell was on his chorus and verse. Fair play to Ladbrokes though who gave us our money back in cash. Bravo. The start was a farce...
WE’RE in to the final day of my week-long racing contest and as well as £50 in free bets from Ladbrokes to be won there’s also the small matter of £100 in cash to be decided. Yesterday @langtounlad top scored with 21 points to take the £30 prize whilst...
THE punters had a field day at Cheltenham on Thursday and Johnb led the way with his 20-1 antepost tip Whistlecrack storming home. He also had a 16-1 winner with Mall Dini and Limini at 8-11 and it was great to see plenty of you bash the bookies. Johnb...
