Cheltenham Festival 2015

Recommended Posts

Post all your thoughts, tips and links to spoofing by trainers and jockeys.

Best of luck to all those betting.

 

My "bankers" (is there such a thing?) this year are:

 

Douvan - generally 7/4

Un De Sceaux - generally 4/7

Faugheen - generally 5/4

 

Can't go too wrong there, at least 2/3 will win I reckon.

20 treble returns 174.46 profit.

 

Throw in Annie Power at 4/6 and Dom Poli in the RSA for 7/2 if you're brave.

Spent most of the last three days going through the form books (currently at race 19 out of 27), looking at trends, etc.

 

I'll be doing the same treble as you on the first day, Un De Sceaux and Faugheen are probably both shorter than they should be (hence not being willing to do any big singles on them). I can't have Annie Power at 4/6 when she hasn't run since May. I've also got a sneaking suspicion that Mullins might actually run her in the World Hurdle, especially now that More of That is out, and that he has Glen's Melody with a great chance in the Mare's anyway.

Agreed on Annie Power. I have done that treble but not going to back Annie Power at that price either.


 


I have Glen's melody in an e/w L15 with Smashing, Cue Card, and Top Notch. Just as an interest bet.


I backed blaklion antepost at 33/1 for the Bartlett although he's been crap since then. 14/1 now.


 


PP's money back special on the first 2 races is too much to turn down, so I've done a cheeky e/1 bet on Alvisio Ville @ 16/1 in the Supreme and Clarcam @12/1 in the Arkle.


 


Went to a charity preview a few weeks back and Tony O'Ryan and Tony Martin think Douvan is the best horse they've seen in 30 years, reckon he could be the 'new' Dawn Run. Could go off at evens on the day. Didn't think much of Peace and Co, spoke more about Top Notch and Hargem being better priced horses.


 


The charity bets they went for on the night;


 


Gary O'Brien - The Don Double - Poli RSA and Cossack Ryanair


Andrew Lynch - Douvan, Supreme


Tony Martin - ThunderZone - Fred Winter


Shark - Windsor Park e/w in whatever race he runs, was 80% sure the champion chase


Kevin O'Ryan - No more heroes in the Barlett

Yeah, saw that PP offer yesterday. I'll be doing Bentelimar e/w at 25s in the Supreme (if it runs, it has four entries at the moment). Maybe Josses Hill in the Arkle.

 

I'd have gone to the preview night tonight in Exeter if we weren't playing later.

Silviniaco is yet to let me down this season and although got knackered last time could finally come good on the last day. Hopefully Sprinter Sacre turns up in rude health as it would be an immense race with Sire de Grugy and Champagne Fever on day 2.

Un De Sceaux's odds are shocking. Funnily enough, I've done the same treble as you aswell Zonke.

 

Won £484 in Bangor on Dee yesterday (3 winners out of 4 on a lucky 15) so I've got a bit to play with at Cheltenham.

 

I'm going to look over the races today and tomorrow as I'm off work so can study a bit.

I am, but also doing Jezki instead of Faugheen in another four fold.

Same here. Hope I haven't cursed it...
