Remember in yesterday's post when I noted how I have varying results when it comes to betting on the Cheltenham Festival? Well, yesterday was a perfect example.
Things started off well - I had a winner in the first race of the day when Altior won the Supreme Novices Hurdle. As I had placed the wager with Betfair, the win qualified for three £3 free bets so I aim to use these today.
The horses that placed were:
Sizing John (2:10pm)
Double Shuffle (5:30pm)
The winners were:
Vroum Vroum Mag (4:10pm)
I spent £34 overall and have £35 plus the three free £3 bets across my accounts. I'd call that an okay start.
Here's what I'm going with today.
1:30 - YANWORTH*
2:10 - BLACKLION (£1.50 e/w using the first of the £3 free bets), NO MORE HEROES
2:50 - ARBRE DE VIE (£1.50 each-way using the 2nd of the £3 free bets)
3:30 - UN DE SCEAUX*
4:10 - JOSIES ORDERS, QUANTATIVEEASING
4:50 - ROMAIN DE SENAM (£1.50 each-way using the final £3 free bet)
5:30 - AUGUSTA KATE, BACARDYS, FIRST FIGARO
*I have Yanworth and Un De Sceaux in a 9/2 special win double that is available from Paddy Power.
