It's the final day of the Cheltenham Festival and I am currently £4.28 up when tallying up all the bets that have been settled.
In the 'Thursday's Results' section below, you'll see what I did to turn things around. For now. Below that, you'll see what I have for today's card.
1:20PM Marsh Novices' Chase
The winner of this race was Chantry House. The favourite going in - Envois Allen - fell during the race, so this made it even more open.
I had Envois Allen in a free £2.50 each-way treble. I also had losing bets on Darver Star and Shan Blue.
1:55PM Pertemps Network Final
Mrs Milner won the Pertemps Network Final with the horse I backed - The Bosses Oscar - finishing second. The result means that I had another placed horse in the £1 each-way Lucky 15 I had for four races this week. I've decided to take the loss and cash out the £24.84 I was offered.
2:30PM Ryanair Chase
I needed Mister Fisher to win or place for a double with Tuesday's winner - Honeysuckle. The horse didn't finish despite being in the front four for most of the race. The winner was Allaho.
3:05PM Stayers Hurdle
Flooring Porter won the Stayers Hurdle at 12/1. I had a £2.50 each-way free bet on the horse that finished in second place - Sire De Berlais.
3:40PM Paddy Power Plate
The Shunter won the Paddy Power Plate. I had a losing free £5 bet on Farclas, which finished - yes, you guessed it - second.
4:15PM Mares' Novices' Hurdle
Telmesomethinggirl won the Mares' Novices' Hurdle. My gamble on Hook Up did not hook me up.
4:50PM Kim Muir Challenge Cup
My bet was on Shantou Flyer. The £5 each-way gamble paid out £15 with the horse finishing behind the winner, Mount Ida, and second-placed, Cloudy Glen.
1:20PM Triumph Hurdle
I have a couple of horses in this race. Firstly, I backed Adagio last week. I am also on Tritonic. Both wagers are £3 each-way.
1:55PM County Handicap Hurdle
You'll see that I have a £1 each-way Lucky 15 for today with You Raised Me Up as the first selection. I also have the horse in a £3 each-way single.
The second horse I've backed in this race, in another £3 each-way single, is Ganapathi.
Finally, I have a £10 free bet on Third Time Lucki to win.
2:30PM Albert Barlett Novice Hurdle
The second horse I have in the aforementioned Lucky 15 is Barbados Buck's in the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle.
I have also used a £5 free bet on the horse to win the race outright.
3:05PM Cheltenham Gold Cup
I've placed a lot of wagers on the big race of the day.
Okay, so - if you've been following along - the horse I believe will win the Gold Cup is A Plus Tard. I cashed out a Lucky 15 with the selection in yesterday. However, I have gone back in and placed a free £10 for the win at 4/1.
As well as that, I have backed Al Boum Photo to win because I was offered 4/1 this morning in an bookmaker's exclusive promotion.
The same bookmaker offered me 7/1 for the two horses to finish 1-2 (in either order). I had a small punt on that option as well.
You'll see below that I have Santini in the Lucky 15. I also had a punt on Santini in a £3 each-way single.
I also have £3 each-way gambles on Minella Indo and Royale Pagaille.
3:40PM Foxhunters Chase
It Came To Pass is the £3 each-way gamble I have for this race.
4:15PM Mares Chase
A £2 each-way punt on the favourite, Elimay, is my wager on Mares Chase.
4:50PM Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle
The final horse in the Lucky 15 for today runs in the last race of the day. I need Galopin Des Champs for that multiple. I also have a £3 each-way single.
In another £3 each-way single - I have Galopin Des Champs' stablemate, Gentleman De Mee.
Here's how the multiples have been working out for me this week. Selections in red have lost, ones in orange have placed, purple selections have been cashed out and those in green have won.
