    Dear old chapoturgeon goes again in the foxhunter.
    This horse ran at the festival in 2008 in the fred winter, with a certain ruby walsh on board.
    2009 won the jewson
    Bit of a legend,
    Not a tip, just like seeing these old warriors still doing what they enjoy, and not festering in a manky field somewhere

      Log Out Island 33/1 for the 2000 Guineas now 66/1 but probably unlikely to run now as Godolphin really have no idea what they have, he is crying out for the mile trip but they think he is a sprinter

      Also Idaho for the Derby at 25/1 now 33/1

    Hope some of you got the 20/1 for Thistlecrack in next years Gold Cup as he is now a best price of 10/1

      Great if it wins gold cup at 20-1 John.
      That would be 2x 20-1 ante post shouts on the same horse within a year.

    I landed a nice single and double on Thistlecrack and Limani to take my winners at the festival to 8 this week. I have studied film and spotted a couple of nice prices to hopefully bring my tally up to double figures for the festival. I never get tired off sipping champagne 😉

    TIPS

    1:30 Footpad E/W (SP) 4 places SJ
    2:10 Dicosimo E/W 20/1 (5 places) & 4/1 TOP 4 finish BF
    2:10 Blue Hell E/W 10/1 (5places) & 9/4 TOP 4 finish BF
    2:50 Gangster E/W 7/1 (4places) PP
    4:10 Current Event 20/1 E/W various & Top 4 finish 10/3 PP
    4:10 Paint the clouds 6/1 E/W & Top 4 finish 6/4 NAP @ PP

    In the Gold Cup I am sweet on CUE CARD (NB). He has two festivals wins under his belt and his in the form of his life. There is only 3 horses in the field that can win this in my opinion but having studying film again, I am drawn to the King George were CUE CARD got up on the line to beat VAUTOUR. The form has been franked this week. I believe he will get this trip and outstay his 2 main rivals.

    my bankroll was only £5 for Cheltenham but I have easily put on over £200 in bets, thanks for all the tips, johnb had a particularly good week, shame I didnt back mall dini! Wouldve been in the 1000s if not for yanworth, josies orders and politoglogue letting me down on a 7, 6 and 4fold respectively.

    Currently looking to end the day with 3 doubles and a treble, just gotta find the horses, good luck everyone today.

    Jimron sod you fella I’m on Don, Don Cossack. On account of the drying conditions and the deflection of the jockey. I respectfully disagree with JohnB but will only be proved correct if Don C gets round. Small saver on Don P with a free bet just to cover stake. May be my only bets as don’t fancy giving it all back! Value pick must be Smad Place for an e/w.

    There’s so many tips how do you decide to go for which horse 😂😂

    • Profile photo of ray_ez
      ray_ez 9 months ago

      I used to pick the most tipped ones but now I tend to try a bit of my own reading based on the tips. At the races app. Racing post app. Time form. William Hill podcast. William Hill racing radio. Loads of good tipsters on here dude. Actually to many to list without missing at least 2. Each have their day. Alanm has been very consistent and is a bread and butter tipster. A few empty the bookies unarmed fairly regular and jb is back where he belongs. I’m probably being no help lol.

      • Profile photo of theboss
        theboss 9 months ago

        I’ve been doing it like that see who tips the most on which race and back that. but also Alanm and De Niro and JonB’s picks have been helping.

        Like you have put doubles is helpful below :)

        • Profile photo of ray_ez
          ray_ez 9 months ago

          I should add that I have just over a year on the horses. Which compared to most on here is very little. One thing I have learned though is that only rarely does a massively tipped horse come in for the site. Strange but true. So dont lump on. Its infuriating lol. May not be so relevant in the big events but worth noting when we return to the grind.

    In the Albert Bartlett Barters Hill is popular on here but you must be wary that the horse is quirky and has tried to run out in some of his races,
    I tend to stay well clear of horses like that.
    Up For Review was disappointing last time but was previously very good, in racing you have to learn to forgive runs and Up For Reviews run can be forgiven as Willie Mullins said the horse picked up a chill on the way over and Mullins isn’t known for making excuses
    Word also got around the course that day about Up For Review as there was no money for the horse at all

    • Profile photo of Johnb
      Johnb 9 months ago

      Not surprised with the money for Don Cossack as it’s he obvious one for punters, but looking deeper into the form there are a few worries but mostly the course,
      Up For Review at the odds is a far better bet I think as he should be about 5/1 or 6/1
      Another to watch for in the race is Gangster

      Bonkers bet
      Sky khan each way in the lucky last 66-1.

      Not so bonkers, came 3rd at 50-1.
      Nice end to the best meet of the year, and that includes Ascot, proper racing for proper racegoers.
      Well done all winners, and to all who have made this thread rock this week.

      And a begrudging well done to VP, quite an achievement. What it proved, I don’t know, but you can’t knock today’s effort.
