As I’ve not seen any write ups here but think the consensus is ground will be quite soft am trying to read up what tipsters fancies are and what horses are shortening in price on Odds Checker to help aide my selections. I’m setting myself a limit of £100 kitty per each day of Cheltenham (excluding free bets).
However trying to police up all the offers the differing book makers have going on so really need to start placing some bets now to qualify for some of them - also all the odds are shortening on the horses I’m thinking of.
Firstly I was looking for a horse in the Mares Hurdle
Not being a horse racing person was hoping I could post the horses I was thinking of punting on to see if the TFP horse racing lovers can give me a steer either for or against.
So I was looking for a horse to go £10 e/w on with Paddy Power in this race as they have an offer on your first bet for all first day races at Cheltenham where you get refunded on losing single bets or the win part of e/w bets up to a maximum of £10 if the SP favourite wins. It seems to me most tipsters info I’ve read and people in general think Apples Jade will cruise to victory in this race - hence a good chance of being a SP favourite winner.
There for my thinking is to go for another horse e/w in this race where if it doesn’t win you hopefully land a place and still get the win part (£10) of ya bet back as a free bet if indeed Apples Jade does win.
I read Andy Holding’s Mares Hurdle Preview and he seems to like La Bague Au Roi as an e/w shot which was when he tipped it 8/1 but right now 13/2 on PP.
So thoughts, is this idea sound - £10 e/w on La Bague Au Roi?
