2024 Cheltenham Festival: Day Zero

It's a day before the 2024 Cheltenham Festival begins and I thought I would publish an update concerning what I plan to do on the blog for the rest of the week.

For last year's meeting, I had a blog post - named the 2023 Cheltenham Festival Betting Diary - which floated across each day. It contained all my wagers and results right through to the Friday.

I liked that approach, so will do that again this week. However, I must stress that I have already gambled in the ante-post markets and some of my picks might not even run in the respective races. Should they not run, I will get my stakes back because I have wagered with the 'Non-Runner, No Bet' offer.

I am bound to refer to those ante-post wagers many times over the coming days, so will use today's post to share with you what I have wagered on.

The bets are three separate Lucky 63s. Each are 5p each-way a line, so the overall total spent has been £18.90. Here's what I've opted for.

Lucky 63 I
1) Chianti Classico (Ultima Handicap Chase - Tuesday)
2) Jonbon (Queen Mother Champion Chase - Wednesday)
3) My Mate Mozzie (Grand Annual Chase - Wednesday)
4) Ginny's Destiny (Turners' Novices Chase - Thursday)
5) Iberico Lord (County Handicap Hurdle - Friday)
6) Sir Gino (Triumph Hurdle - Friday)

Lucky 63 II
1) Lossiemouth (Mares Hurdle - Tuesday)
2) Ballyburn (Supreme Novices' Hurdle - Tuesday)
3) Jalon D'oudairies (Champion Bumper - Wednesday)
4) Fugitif (Ryanair Chase - Thursday)
5) Good Time Jonny (Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Handicap Chase - Thursday)
6) Corach Rambler (Gold Cup - Friday)

Lucky 63 III
1) Hunters Yarn (Arkle - Tuesday)
2) Readin Tommy Wrong (Gallagher Novices' Hurdle - Wednesday)
3) Broadway Boy (Brown Advisory Novices' Chase - Wednesday)
4) Irish Point (Stayers Hurdle - Thursday)
5) Icare Allen (Pertemps Final - Thursday)
6) Johnnywho (Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle - Friday)
