What a great 2016 Cheltenham! Red hot connections, some of the best horse information, early prices and great winners – including a 33-1 double!
I love beating the bookies. Cheltenham is no different. During the festival I advise to members an A and B bet. My gambling approach is a portfolio one – some horses I back might be short odds, even the favourite. Add on a multiplier here and there – and BOOM, the return on short priced odds become BIG! Here’s a quick look at the A & B results of the festival.
Tuesday winners kicked off with VROOM VROOM MAG. Not an exciting price but Cheltenham is about winning and building your cash not just about big prices. The stable told me this was one of their best chance of the meeting.
BOOM! VROOM VROOM MAG destroyed them. Information shared at 11/10.
Then came BOUVREIL shared at 14/1 and recommended E/W bet. A hard race – almost Impossible. But despite this horse running awful last time and beaten 30 lengths connections shared it was improved and expected to be close. Led over the last, looked home and hosed and gambled down to 1.22 by the Professional In Running traders only to get caught, beaten by ½ length.
BOOM! BOUVREIL. 7/2 for 2nd.
Wednesday saw YANWORTH come in 2nd. No shame in that race, and soon we were celebrating DIEGO DU CHARMIL. Laid out for this and a secret shared he had never raced here in the UK because the stable were so worried it would expose him.
BOOM! DIEGO DU CHARMIL a 15/2 beauty.
Thursday THISTLECRACK did it for us! Tom Scudamore the jockey said even before Cheltenham he regarded it as his bet of the meeting and was strongly fancied.
BOOM! THISTLECRACK an impressive win – info was spot on. Definitely the best ride of the week. Advised at 5/4.
Doctor Harper chance was ruined at the first as Knock House served across him and ended up on his nose virtually throwing him off.
Last but not least was Friday – What a finale to the festival! Our Cheltenham portfolio bet was lined up to deliver a 33-1 on the A&B.
IVANOVICH GORATOV was a big price because he was beaten at odds on last run in Ireland. But our top class contacts told us not to worry he’d improved and we had to be on!
BOOM! IVANOVICH GORBATOV fantastic 13/2 gamble landed.
Love it when your first bet of the day wins and you’re playing with the bookies money! Next up ON THE FRINGE.
BOOM! ON THE FRINGE 7/2 gambled down to 13/8f.
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM! 33/1 gamble landed!! They both won!! 2 bets 2 great winners and awesome 33/1 double!!
What to finish Friday at Cheltenham!
Roll on the 2016 Flat Season.
