Cheltenham 2019 – Day Three Diary

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, which is referred to as St Patrick’s Day at Cheltenham 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 £287, I was hoping to continue the progress today.

So here are my results from Thursday at Cheltenham. My stakes were £20 per point once again.


1.30 – JLT Novices Chase

A good start to the day with the Bet Alchemist picking the winner, Defi Du Seuil, at 3/1. My other bet on the race, Lostintranslation from Quentin Franks, was second but with bookies offering money back on the first race my stake was returned so no harm done. 

Profit/Loss from Race: £60


2.10 – Pertemps Network Final

A great result in this one with Sire Du Berlais just getting home by a neck for Quentin Franks at 7/1. There was also a place for Cuneo from the Bet Alchemist at 16/1, although his other tip Boyhood finished out of the places. 

Profit/Loss from Race: £142


2.50 – Ryanair Chase

No tips from my tipsters in this race but I did have a free bet from Bet365, which once again failed to deliver for me as the other free bets from Bet365 have also done this week. This time I went for Road to Respect which finished third.

Profit/Loss from Race: £0


3.30 – Stayers Hurdle

Just the one bet in this race and it was on Supasundae from the Bet Alchemist, which sadly finished 7th so a loss here.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20


4.10 – Stable Plate

No bets from Quentin on this one but two from the Bet Alchemist, with one placing at 8/1 in the form of Spiritofthegames, whilst the other one Azzerti finished down the field, which in effect cancelled each other out.  

Profit/Loss from Race: £0


4.50 – Mares Novices Hurdle

No return in this race with Quentin’s tip Posh Trish disappointing. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20


5.30 – Challenge Cup Handicap Steeple Chase

A great result for the Bet Alchemist, who managed to pick the first and third-placed horses, with Any Second Now winning at advised odds of 10/1 and The Young Master finishing second at 22/1 (BOG). 

Profit/Loss from Race: +£159



So a cracking day in the end, with the luck finally going our way. An excellent profit of £321 on the day, taking our total profit for the week to £608.

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.
