Cheltenham 2021: Day 2

It's day two of Cheltenham. Here's the rundown of my betting from yesterday along with the horses I am looking out for today.

Tuesday's Results

1:20PM Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle
5/6 favourite Appreciate It won the opener. I had £10 on Metier to win, but that bet will be refunded back to me because I gambled with Sky Bet, which had an offer for the first race. 

I also had a £2.50 each-way free bet on Ballyadam. It came second bringing back £3.

So - after race one, I had £13 back.

1:55PM Sporting Life Arkle Chase
Shishkin won the Arkle. As you'll see below, I had the winner in a 23p each-way Lucky 15 with other horses that are running this week.

2:30PM Ultima Handicap Chase
I had a free £5 bet on One For The Team to win. Vintage Clouds was the 28/1 winner. I didn't lose anything on this race.

3:05PM Unibet Champion Hurdle
The favourite, Honeysuckle, won the Unibet Champion Hurdle. I had a trio of bets on her. I had £8 to win and I also backed the horse at £1 using a special new customer 33/1 promotion. So, I'll get free bet credits back for that. Honeysuckle is also a winner in a £1 each-way double that will be settled following Thursday's Ryanair Chase (I now need Mister Fisher to do the business).

Honeysuckle wasn't the only horse I backed on this race. I also had £1.50 each-way on Sharjah, which finished in second place.

Following these results, I returned £28.85 from Honeysuckle and £6.30 from the second-placed horse. This does not count the extra winnings I'll get from the 33/1 promo because those returns will be in free bet credits.

3:40PM Close Brothers Mares' Hurdle
Back Tears was the winner. I had losing bets each-way bets in My Sister Sarah and Great White Shark. The latter was leading for a lot of the race.

4:15PM Boodles Juvenile Handicap 
There was an 80/1 winner in this race with Jeff Kidder. I obviously didn't have him. My horse was Busselton, which appears in the £1 each-way Lucky 15.

4:50PM National Hunt Novices' Chase
The final race on day one was won by Galvin. I had the horse that placed second - Next Destination. My wager was £4 each-way, so I got £5.80 back. A £2.20 loss.

Wednesday's Bets

1:20PM Ballymore Novices' Hurdle
On yesterday's card, Shishkin was a winning selection in the 23p each-way Lucky 15. Next up is Bravemansgame, who runs in today's opener.

I have also backed Bravemasnsgame on another website. I have a £2.50 each-way on him and also have repeated that wager of  £2.50 each-way with a free £5.

Sky Bet is once again doing an offer for the first race of the day where you'll have a refund up to £10 if your horse is a loser. I have put a tenner on the favourite - Bob Olinger.

1:55PM Brown Advisory Novices Chase
This race is going to be all about the favourite - Monkfish, who is very short. I doubt I'll bet on this race.

2:30PM Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle
I had a £1 each-way antepost bet on Black Tears. I gambled with a firm that did not have a Non Runner No Bet promotion, so have lost already because the horse ran - and won! - in the Close Bros. Mares Hurdle yesterday.

As for horses that are in the race: I have a free £5 bet on Sneaky Getaway to win as well as a £2 each-way gamble. 

I also have £2 each-way on Thomas Darby.

3:05PM Queen Mother Champion Chase
This is another race with the favourite quite short. I've gone for a £2 each-way punt on Nube Negra at 12/1.

3:40PM Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase
The favourite is Easysland, but I had a £1 each-way gamble on Hogan's Height at 25/1. If you know me - you'll get why I picked the name, brother.

4:15PM Grand Annual Handicap Chase
The horse I have in this race appears in the £1 Each-Way Lucky 15. I need Encoutas to save this bet after Busselton let me down yesterday.

4:50PM Champion Bumper
The third selection, in the 23p each-way Lucky 15 that started off with a win in the Arkle, is running in the final race of today. It is Kilcruit.

Here's how the multiples have been working out for me this week. Selections in red have lost, ones in orange have placed and those in green have won.
