Preparations for the Cheltenham Festival

The past few days I've been looking through the form book of recent results putting together a shortlist of likely contenders for the handicaps at Cheltenham next month, and it's a good job I did as its been revealed that a record 1,145 entries have been received for the 11 festival handicaps! There is no way anyone could go through the form on that lot and so preparing a shortlist of likely candidates is the only realistic way forward. I'll be sending out an appraisal with my thoughts on the handicaps to those readers of the blog who've made a donation of at least £8 and received a copy of my Cheltenham Festival Bulletin for 2013.
If you want the handicap appraisals - and I won't be publishing them on the blog - then you'll have to make a donation.  If you make a donation, then I will send out the bulletin - pdf version - to your email address in the evening following receipt and it should be in your in-box before 8pm. Remember, in addition to the handicap appraisals, those who receive the bulletin will also receive drafts of my daily blog pages on the evening before racing during the week of the Cheltenham Festival so that they can take advantage of any early value that I spot before anyone else. Some horseracing tipsters are charging £25 for a Cheltenham Festival preview booklet; some tipsters are charging £50 for a preview booklet and email updates - you can obtain my festival bulletin, plus my handicap appraisals AND drafts of my daily blog pages on the evening before racing during the week of the Cheltenham Festival, all for just a minimum donation of £8.00 If that's not value I don't know what is. My record is here on the blog, which I've been writing since March 2010.
Every selection, every result, every point of profit and loss in the 3 year life of this blog is documented - there is nothing hidden. I know there are some of you out there who have been with me almost from the start, and there are some who have only come across me recently. Hopefully, you will all have the same impression of me gained through this blog; that I'm genuine, honest, that the opinion's I give are my own, and that my most valuable possession is my integrity.
Since I've kept records of my wagers (and I've been recording the results of my betting since my mid-20's, that's nearly 30 years), this jumps season has been, without doubt, the most successful and profitable of all. I'll put a spreadsheet of results for the season up on the blog as soon as I have time (all my spare time is taken up with preparation for Cheltenham at the moment), but I must be over 80pts ahead based on the money in my own betting bank.
Fingers crossed, as we all need a bit of luck along the way, and this year's Festival could be my best ever - though, it probably won't top 2009 when I was on Forpadydeplaster @ 9/1, Mikael D'Hagenet @ 4/1, Cooldine @ 3/1, then "super Thursday" with Kayf Aramis @ 25/1, Big Bucks @ 13/2, Character Building @ 25/1 plus, on Friday, Zaynar @ 5/1 - the Irish lads were singing that year, all right!.
Thanks for reading this blog and I hope you get enjoyment from it.
If you have a successful wager on the back of what you read here (and with over 500 regular readers, I'm assuming plenty do - that's why they keep coming back), then please make a contribution as an expression of thanks via the donate button.
Remember - gambling on horseracing should be a pleasurable experience - never bet more than you can afford to lose.
Thanks from Wayward Lad
