Cheltenham 2022 – Day Three Diary

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 three of my favourite tipsters – Quentin Franks Racing, the Bet Alchemist and the Irish Cash Consortium – to find the best bets for Cheltenham.

By combining the above two approaches together, this should give me a good chance of beating the bookies this week.

So how did this strategy perform on Wednesday at Cheltenham? Let’s have a look below.

 

Day Three Results

After losses on the first two days it was all to play for on the third day of the festival and crucial to get things back on track. 

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

 

 

1.30 – Turner’s Novice Chase

You really couldn’t make it up. Thinking that finally the luck may have turned when the horse tipped by both Quentin and the Bet Alchemist burst clear and looked to be sailing onto a huge victory, well of course the horse had to fall at the last didn’t it! 

Having traded at 1.01 in-play on Betfair it was a cruel blow and a tough way to start the day. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£80

 

2.10 – Pertemps Network Final

The tale of woe predictably continued in the next race as Quentin’s tip Alphillipe looked the winner before being pipped on the line. 

The Bet Alchemist’s tip Sire Du Berlais was never really in it nor was the Irish Cash Consortium’s pick. 

The only consolation from my own point of view was that I did have the 25/1 winner of the race, but that was a personal bet rather than one of the tipster’s selections. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£100

 

2.50 – Ryanair Chase

Just the one bet in this race and that came from Quentin’s ante-post bet on Allaho at a tasty 3.50, which moved away nicely to land the first winner of the day. 

Profit/Loss from Race: +£50

 

3.30 – Paddy Power Stayers Hurdle

Just the one bet in this race and that was Home By The Lee (without Flooring Porter) from the Bet Alchemist, who finished well down the field. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20

 

4.10 – Plate Handicap

No bets from Quentin on this one but one from the Bet Alchemist, who – yep you’ve guessed it – finished one position outside the places. The ICC’s tip was well down the field once again. 

Fortunately I did have the winner in this race from my personal bets. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£40

 

4.50 – Mares Novices Hurdle

The Bet Alchemist’s tip ran a reasonable race for sixth whilst Quentin’s tip, despite being well backed, failed to deliver for a change. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£60

 

5.30 – Kim Muir Challenge Cup Handicap Chase

The Bet Alchemist had two more selections in this race and they both were pulled up whilst Quentin’s tip finished sixth. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£60

 

TOTAL PROFIT/LOSS FROM THE DAY: -£310

A brutal day then, but it could have looked a lot different if we hadn’t had the runaway leader fall at the last hurdle in the opening race. There was more bad luck with seconds and horses finishing just outside the places again.

From my personal point of view the day was salvaged by Third Wind winning at 25/1 and Flooring Porter winning at 9/2, but those were unofficial bets and not part of this experiment. 

In any event, tomorrow is the last day of the festival and whilst it hasn’t been great so far, one big winner could turn it all around…
