I am tracking my results from this year’s Cheltenham festival here on the blog and the first two days went very well, with a profit made on both days.
Onto day three then and there were some cracking races on the card today.
Just a reminder that I am using a twofold strategy this week, which is:
1. To use all the bookies offers, brought together via Profit Maximiser; and
2. Use two of my favourite tipsters – Quentin Franks Racing and the Bet Alchemist – to find the best bets for Cheltenham. Both have excellent records at the festival so I am following their tips for the week.
By combining the above two together, this should give me a good chance of beating the bookies this week.
So how did this strategy get on today? Let’s have a look below.
Day Three Results
After a good start on the first two days with a profit of £123, I was hoping to continue the progress today.
So here are my results from Thursday at Cheltenham – and what a day it was! My stakes were £20 per point once again.
1.30 – Marsh Novices Chase
A losing start to the day with Bet Alchemist’s tip Itchy Feet finishing unplaced but I got half the stake back from Skybet.
Profit/Loss from Race: -£10
2.10 – Pertemps Network Final
No bets in this race from either tipster – but things were about to liven up…
Profit/Loss from Race: £0
2.50 – Ryanair Chase
Quentin’s only runner of the day bolted up to deliver our first winner of Thursday as Min won by just a neck at 6/1 advised ante-post (5/2 on the day). The Bet Alchemist’s tip in this race did not place.
Profit/Loss from Race: +£100
3.30 – Paddy Power Stayers Hurdle
Just the one bet in this race and it was on Summerville Boy from the Bet Alchemist, which sadly finished 5th so a loss here.
Profit/Loss from Race: -£20
4.10 – Stable Plate Handicap
No bets from Quentin on this one but two from the Bet Alchemist, with one placing at 12/1 in the form of Ben Dundee, whilst the other selection Simply the Betts romped home to land a nice winner at 7/1.
Profit/Loss from Race: +£180
4.50 – Mares Novices Hurdle
The Bet Alchemist then followed it up with another winner in the next race with Concertista, which I backed at 5/1 (advised price 11/2).
Profit/Loss from Race: +£120
5.30 – Kim Muir Challenge Cup Handicap Chase
The Bet Alchemist was unlucky not to follow it up with yet another winner in the last, with 12/1 ante-post pick Kilfilum Cross finishing second for each-way returns. His other pick finished well down the field.
Profit/Loss from Race: -£26
TOTAL PROFIT/LOSS FROM THE DAY: +£344
So a cracking day in the end, with the luck finally going our way and three winners on the day. An excellent profit of £344 on the day, taking my total profit for the week to £467.
The festival wraps up tomorrow with the feature race being the Gold Cup, so let’s hope for more of the same and to finish off a great week in style.
Just a note to say I am attending a special Cheltenham day out tomorrow (not at the course itself but a venue with big screens, food and drink etc which should be a lot of fun) so I probably won’t be able to post tomorrow’s results until later in the weekend.
Enjoy the last day of the festival though wherever you are and I hope you’ve had a good week too.
