I've been doing this nearly every year since I started the blog in 2006. There have been mixed results over the years. I've had great festivals. I've also had abysmal ones. Last year's festival resulted in me being close to £10 down after four days of wagering.
Today's horses are:
1:30 Ballyandy 3/1 (£3 each-way)
2:10 Altior's odds are too short to even bother betting on
2:50 The Druids Nephew 9/1 (£3 each-way)
3:30 Brain Power 7/1 (£3 each-way)
4:10 Vroum Vroum Mag 3/1 (£3 each-way)
4:50 In yesterday's post, I noted that I placed a £10 each-way bet on A Genie in Abottle a little over a month ago
5:30 Double Ws 14/1 (£3 each-way)
That's £50 laid out in total.
The races that are underlined qualify for a special offer that's available from Betfair where customers could get free bets if their horse wins one of the televised races on ITV.
