I was delighted last weekend with my 20-1 selection Dragon Bones (returned at SP of 40-1) who sluiced up in the mares novice hurdle at Doncaster.  

That put a few quid in my betting bank for Cheltenham and I was pleased to see that plenty of you managed to get on too.

This Saturday I have only focussed on a few races with the main focus of course being Cheltenham which starts on Tuesday but I am turning to the mares again for help.  I have two that I like at lovely big prices that hopefully will get us a few extra shekels into the virtual pockets for the week ahead.

2.25pm Sandown

Paul Nicholls is as pragmatic as they come as far as finding winners is concerned and he doesn't mind if it's Cheltenham, Aintree or Sandown in the Imperial Cup.  He likes a big handicap pot wherever it might be found and he sends one here that I think looks like great value.

MIRANDA has won two of her last three races but hasn't been punished by the handicapper and I really like the form of her last race in particular, beating some decent mares and she had them strung out in behind her.

Angus Cheleda comes back in taking off a useful 7lb and this classy mare at the top of the handicap will enjoy the decent ground.  I'm surprised we are getting a double figure price and with Hills paying a whopping 6 places we have to take advantage each way.

3.00pm Sandown

I mentioned the form of Henry Daly last week and the strength of his relationship with Richard Johnson. When he books Dickie they tend not to be messing about as we saw on Sunday and Monday when his last two bumper entries finished 2nd and 1st respectively having been backed in from double-figure prices in both cases.

Johnson was booked on both of course. MARSHAMALLO is one who lines up here in a listed mares bumper with a nice piece of form in the book after winning in January.  She pulled a bit that day and made her way to the front wanting to go faster and then when they came for her in the run in she decided that she didn't want to lose and found plenty to scoot away.

This is a much better race but they are likely to go a bit faster than they did that day which should suit her and she will come on massively for the experience of her last race.  That will to win is really positive too, especially against a few horses here who haven't been tested in that way yet.  Bizarrely the horse she beat last time out is half of her price here (Billams Legacy) when they are running off the same weight again.

That makes no sense to me and I would love to get them in a match bet actually. We are getting a whopping 25-1 with some bookies paying 4 places so whilst the favourite looks a promising type from the Nicholls yard I would far rather have the each-way value about Marshmallo.

Cheltenham Podcast

Don't miss the Cheltenham Preview Podcast from Gambla where our very own Voice of Value and guest host Jim Delahunt discuss their best bets for the week ahead.

Voice of Value serves up a couple of big prices and Jim waxes lyrical about a horse who he thinks could be the new Arkle. There's also a couple Charity Bets in play, provide by WhoKnowsWins, and from which the winnings will be donated to the two causes we've been raising money for in MrFixit's honour; The Bubble Foundation and St Margaret's Hospice.

Well worth a listen at just 47 mins.

    I’m with you on Miranda all day long !
    I reckon Sheila Nash at 3:00 but may the best horse win fair and square .

    Good luck and thanks for last weekend I think your very backable as a tipster as are a Lot of the contributors they have all won me money at one time or another . Money is good but it’s all about the win for me especially when everything suggests you don’t stand a chance and it drifts like a barge but you have seen something others have missed and stand by your convictions! Cheers 🥂

      Yak yak yak I know ha

    • dazzman1979 1 year ago

      I’m not insane . He should be called voice of reason lol . I always pay attention to every single person who tips they are saving you time . But with horse racing your charting about the past and gambling on a future that hasn’t happened yet . Within reason roll the dice take a chance ! If I was advising a newcomer I would say go each wAy and not bet less than 4/1 but Keri an eye out at the last minutes if you can ! Usually the truth only comes out in the dying moment S eg a 14 shortening to 9 ignore the two favs live to fight another day where you can

    • dazzman1979 1 year ago

      Hahaha Sheila Nash is now 40/1 that means more money to me but less to others .

    Well I been thinking and this is a very selfless sight trying to get gains from the hardest sport going and with that in mind I’m going to allocate some of my stake money to your selections and hopefully build up a pot to give to charity. . But in my mind I’m kinda thinking is there a way we can tip the tippers which would be a charity pot and at the end of the year have some kind of vote discussion how funds are donated . Basically my way of thinking as well as thanking someone for the tip on here we donate to the pot which we can see the amount live getting bigger and bigger . It’s a suggestion very rough round the edges but it might encourage a few dark horses to come out the woodworks if they no there tips won’t be wasted and good comes of it 👊

      In full agreement dazzman. I feel selfish sometimes taking all the advice without having confidence to put my choices on as I am fairly new to this and lose more races than win. Would be up for “tipping the tips ” into charity pot. I would suggest charity would be something to do with racing as its the sport we love and maybe a small percentage of the wins. Pot would soon build up.

    Just finished listening to the podcast, a great Cheltenham preview.

    Jim D gave a big nod to Maze Runner but I can’t see it anywhere in the betting, either for the Coral Cup or The Martin Pipe. Did it get scratched ?
