Some Cheltenham Action..

Ok Ok so its been a quiet week blog wise but the winners ( and losers ) have been rolling in so statistically im happy as the no shows are in line with the blog although I was annoyed to have missed a couple of beauts yesterday!!..however we are on target and in profit so that has to be a good thing ? right?..

Today we will both look at Cheltenham ( I will always try to cover ) and see what Bullets and Buckles we have.


We start the day off with an ams race over 3m1f in what looks to be a very competitive opener and the 5.2 on For Good Measure looks way too short for a horse that has it all to prove against some very nice looking improvers with form in the bag, surely even at 5.2 that’s a big Lay bet?. For the Win ( or EW ) I wont look any further than the J J Codd ridden STATION MASTER from an in form stable  this hardy type ticks all the boxes and will gtee a decent run for your money.

The 1315 is a nice Novice Hurdle and Dostal Phil has to now match the hype and gossip, often talked about as a rising star and future champion this 5yr old now has to start showing he has the ability to match.  Personally I will be siding with DREAM DU GRAND VAL at around 9.0 a price I think is very generous for this ex French recruit now housed with Henderson, may not win but is worth a dabble and is worth keeping an eye on as ive been informed that it jumps very well indeed.

the 1350 is a bit of a nothingness for me and I will just be watching Peppay Le Pugh as this outsider is quite overpriced imo.

the 1425 is another small field affair and for me this will rest between the Henderson duo of Mr Whipped and the very disappointing (last season) JENKINS however I will take preference for Jenkins to show more now having won his season opened easy although the form is nothing it showed he had heart and was a decent jumper and at around 11/1 is well worth a sniff but the dutch remains a sound and better betting option.

the 1500 is a standard XC affair with some of the usual suspects turning up or in some cases Tuning  up which is a bit naughty.  We get to see the Grand National winner Tiger Roll today and he is also a CD winner having won at last years festival before winning the national however this is his first race of the season and he has to get the very skilled and experienced JOSIES ORDERS over a stone in weight and that is a very tough call however Josies Orders is rated some 40 LB lower so in theory the extra weight should not be an issue?..tough Call and decision. I cannot split these two because the only other danger Bless the Wings has quite a bit to find with both so I will sit on the fence and have another Dutched bet.

The 1535 is a very decent looking Novice Hurdle over 2m5f. I think Pym is worth taking on as the current 2/1 is way to short so I will lay that as the extra 5f will either catch it out of enhance but the price is one that has Lay written all over it. For a bet at 20/1 I think KAPGARRY is a very interesting bet and that’s where my money is going.

Today’s Bullets and Buckles.

  1. 1240 Chelt – Sky Pirate & Lovely Job – ( Chase ) –
