Cheltenham antepost advice Nr.03

The 440th edition of the Wayward Lad blog.

For those readers of the blog who have made a recent donation, yesterday evening I sent out my 3rd antepost advice email for the Cheltenham Festival. My opinion of the antepost markets this year is that there are going to be some very upset punters due to very late changes in Festival targets for some leading horses. For instance, I'm expecting Peddlers Cross (7/2 for the Arkle) to go for the Jewson instead, and Grands Crus (2/1 for the RSA Chase) to go for the Gold Cup. If you have made a recent donation and did not receive the email advice last night, let me know on idykes@btinternet.com.

I have been pleasantly surprised by the response to my Cheltenham Festival Bulletin as demand as exceeded my expectations and the responses I've had from those who received it have been good.

Yesterday, I thought The Cockney Mackem had the race in the bag 4-out in the 2:25 at Doncaster, but he plainly did not stay the 3-mile trip. There was no such problem with Chac Du Cadran who ran 3rd in the 3-mile h'cap hurdle at 4:05. Looking the likely winner at the 2nd-last, it was a huge run in a competitive field to be 3rd and this horse looks like being an interesting handicap chaser next season. I did say the horse was capable of being placed, and those of you who took the advice were rewarded.

I managed to make another successful trade on Betfair yesterday (it was a back-to-lay on Nikola in the 3:30 at Doncaster) and my record since 1st January is now: 30 trades / 17 "wins" / 7 "losses" / 6 "trade-outs"; the ROI stands at +46.90%.

There are no blog selections today as racing looks ordinary.

Thanks for reading this blog to all new visitors, and I hope that you get enjoyment from it.

  1. Peddlers Cross is an extremely good horse. Giving Hurricane Fly a race is no mean feat and lets not forget Peddlers also won the Neptune Investment race the year previous. Even though Sprinter Sacre does look extremely good, I would be with Peddlers Cross to battle up that hill to victory. Bet Online at The Cheltenham Festival with William Hill
