After a frustrating first day of Cheltenham I was hoping things would pick up on Day Two at the festival.
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
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 Two Results
After yesterday’s loss of £106 it was a case of seeing if we could get back on track on the second day of the festival.
So here are the results from Wednesday at Cheltenham. My stakes were £20 per point once again.
1.30 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle
Just the one bet in this race and that was Journey With Me advised by the Bet Alchemist. Unfortunately it was a faller, so not the ideal start to the day.
Profit/Loss from Race: -£20
2.10 Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase
On to the second race then and Quentin Franks bet was withdrawn before the race so stakes were returned.
Bet Alchemist’s tip Beacon Edge finished well down the field but the Irish Cash Consortium’s tip grabbed a place to at least give us some sort of return on the race.
Profit/Loss from Race: -£17
2.50 Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle
Bet Alchemist’s tip Call Me Lord pulled up whilst the Irish Cash Consortium’s tip Drop The Anchor did exactly as it name suggests and went backwards, finishing 14th.
Profit/Loss from Race: -£40
3.30 Queen Mother Champion Chase
Finally a winner! Once again it was thanks to Quentin who is single-handedly keeping things afloat this week. This time it was Energumene at 5.0 coming home nicely in the feature race.
Profit/Loss from Race: +£80
4.50 Grand Annual Challenge Cup
With no bets advised in the previous race, it was on to the Grand Annual.
Once again it was frustration as the horse both Quentin and the ICC had tipped, Andy Dufresne, came second after being backed very heavily before the race. The ICC had it each-way though, so at least some kind of return.
Profit/Loss from Race: -£18
5.30 Weatherbys Champion Bumper
Onto the final race of the day and it was frustration once again as Quentin’s Tip, American Mike, finished second after a strongly-run race.
The ICC picked an 80/1 shot who finished well down the field.
Profit/Loss from Race: -£40
TOTAL PROFIT/LOSS FROM THE DAY TWO OFFICIAL BETS: -£55
Well looking on the bright side it was a better day on Wednesday than on Tuesday, with a smaller loss made. Hopefully things are moving in the right direction. 😉
Once again however it was a case of “close but not cigar,” with more seconds to add to the (growing) list from Tuesday.
Quentin is having a good festival so far though and is once again showing why he is our number one recommended horse racing tipster.
