Cheltenham 2019 – Day Two Diary

Day Two of Cheltenham went ahead in the end after an early inspection which was good news.

I am tracking my results from this year’s festival using a twofold strategy, 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 Two Results

After a good start yesterday with a profit of £242, I was hoping to continue the progress today.

So here are the results from Wednesday at Cheltenham. My stakes were £20 per point.


1.30 Ballymore Novices Hurdle

Not a great start to the day, with both the Bet Alchemist and Quentin Franks putting up the same tip in the form of Champ, who agonisingly finished second by a narrow margin. 

Still, not too much damage done with a number of bookies offering money back if your horse loses on the first race, which covered half of the stakes.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£30


2.10 RSA Chase

No bets in this race from either of the tipsters.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20


2.50 Coral Cup Hurdle

The Bet Alchemist landed a place with Brio Conti at 12/1 but his other selection Scarpeta finished down the field, meaning I broke even on the race.   

Profit/Loss from Race: £0


3.30 Queen Mother Champion Chase

Just the one bet in this race and it was a free £50 bet from Bet365. As neither of the tipsters had a bet in this race I put the free £50 on Min which unfortunately never really looked like winning, but I couldn’t quite bring myself to back Altior at 2/5, although with hindsight should have done. 

Profit/Loss from Race: £0


4.10 Cross Country Chase

A nice win on this one with Quentin tipping Tiger Roll at 5/2 for two points, whilst the Bet Alchemist had a place with Urgent De Gregaine at 14/1.

Profit/Loss from Race: £125


4.50 Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle

No return in this race with the Bet Alchemist’s tip Got Trumped finishing out of the frame.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20


5.30 Champion Bumper

More frustration with another second place, this time with Quentin’s tip Blue Sari by less than a length. Some of the stake covered by Betway’s money back offer on the last race at least. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£10



It was a day of what might have been in the end, with a couple of very close calls just missing out. But a profit is a profit so can’t complain at all and takes the profit for the week so far to £287. 

Let’s hope for more profits tomorrow but with some of those seconds turning into winners!
