Cheltenham 2020 – Day Two Diary

After a positive first day of Cheltenham I was hoping things would carry over to Day Two on Wednesday. 

Just a reminder 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 yesterday’s profit of £93 it was a quieter day today for us at the festival but there were still some highlights to enjoy. 

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


1.30 Ballymore Novices Hurdle

Just the one bet in this race, from the Bet Alchemist and it finished well down the pack. Fortunately I got half my stake back from Skybet. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£10


2.10 RSA Chase

Quentin’s only selection of the day Minella Indo ran in this race and unluckily for us finished second, beaten just a length. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£40


2.50 Coral Cup Hurdle

The Bet Alchemist landed a very nice winner with Dame De Compagnie romping home for Nicky Henderson at a tasty 13/2 for me (with Unibet’s bet boost). It could have been even better though – his other tip, Black Tears, finished second at 16/1! A reverse forecast on those two would have delivered a bumper profit but as it was we were happy to settle for some tidy returns from the race.  

Profit/Loss from Race: £100


3.30 Queen Mother Champion Chase

No bets in this race. Probably a good thing with the red-hot favourite getting turned over.

Profit/Loss from Race: £0


4.10 Glenfarclas Chase

No bets in this race either.

Profit/Loss from Race: £0


4.50 Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle

No bets in this race once again!

Profit/Loss from Race: £0


5.30 Champion Bumper

Just the one bet in this race with Five Par Brian finishing well down the field for the Bet Alchemist.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20



As I say a quiet day with not many bets, but a profit is a profit so we can’t complain. It was a day of what might have been in the end, with a couple of very close calls just missing out. 

Let’s hope for more profits tomorrow but with a bit more action to enjoy!
