It is that time of the year again, when the greatest National Hunt meeting takes place in the UK. It seems like 5 minutes since last year and looks like being another cracker. If any of you are attending, good luck and I hope you enjoy it. I will have to be content with watching on the tv and having a little flutter from home. I have a brother who will be there on Thursday and Friday. Jammy devil. I have made my choices for today and am off out early so as to get back for the off.

*Summerville Boy 1.30 @7/1
Saint Calvados 2.10
*Yala Enki 2.50 @12/1
*Faugheen 3.30 @11/2
*La Bague Au Roi 4.10 @6/1
Rathvinden 4.50

£1.00 Jackpot and Placepot using the six listed.
**** = £1.00 E/W Acca. 4 X 20p E/W Trebles. 6 X 20p E/W Doubles.

Depending on the results of the first two races I can cover the last 4 picks if I feel it is prudent. Good luck if you have a flutter. I will use this thread for the week, to either bemoan my luck or to celebrate, and will post my choices for each day.

I will have to be content with watching on the tv

Lucky you... I will have to be content with your Cheltenham posts on here :0(
Lol - not much hope if i cant even get the name right then - yes put the bet on yesterday while browsing the festival - took it as safest bet of the early races.
Still missing the racecaller website - amazing info was available there.

All the races are available online Talbot. I take it that you are "away". If you have an account with most of the online bookies(bet 365 for me) you can automatically watch using their safe websites rather than the streaming pirates.
‘And on the Tuesday God created Cheltenham’

Would love to be there. Hope the heavy going doesn't take its toll on too many and we have good conditions for the Gold Cup.

Funnier things have happened.
Cayton, tipster in the Daily Worker had a tendency to pick Russian this, Red that.
Won the Sporting Life Naps Table 4 times including when Russian Hero won the Grand National at 66/1. Lol.
I'll do 'No Comment' in the 4:50 cos I like Derek O'Connor(j) at Cheltenham.

bet 365 will take Placepot, Jackpot, and Scoop 6 tote bets Voltage.
all the other bookies do togo ...paddy power account will be closed will bet elsewhere..their loss
Off the top of my head I can think of Red Alligator, Red Rum and Red Marauder winning the National.

I once had a 66-1 winner at Chelters, and I decided to retire after that :-)
Afternoon, all, and good luck to those having a punt. I normally build up a bank of about £200 for the 4 day festival and i have done so again, this year. However, my confidence (low as it was in the first place) has been diminished even more by the forecast heavy going, which possibly puts paid to some of the stats i rely on. So, until the going alters (or, and pigs will fly, i make a substantial profit), i am restricting myself to about £25 per day. So;

1.30; Kalashnikov @ 4/1 (Rev f/c with Summerville Boy)
2.50; Singlefarmpayment @ 6/1 (Rev f/c with Gold Present)
4.50; Ms Parfois @ 13/2 (Rev f/c with Jury Duty)
5.30; Barney Dwan @ 8s (Rev f/c with Testify)

Win singles on all,20p lucky `15 and 50p e.w. acca; 4 placed = approx £20, 4 winners =approx £2,017.

My win single on Kalashnikov (@ 11/2) is with Willy Hill who will double winnings if backing winner of first race.

Also, a £5 free bet with Sky on the 3 'good things'; Footpad, Buveur D'air and Apples Jade = £18.50.

Placepot; 6-2-9-1-1-16
Well in with the first winner, Togo. Thought mine was going to hold on for my double winnings. Have to make do with the forecast - which is a decent return and ensures a profit no matter what happens with the rest of the day.

Summerville Boy romps in and gets me off to a flyer. Ken bags the rev. f/cast which pays £47.35 for a full stake. I got 9/1 due to b o g.
Did £1.60 rev f/c, Togo. Almost £76 back :-)
cracking start you two - even I have 50p to play with haha
