Champion Chase 2013 Tips

This year's Champion Chase revolves around one horse and one horse only. Sprinter Sacre looks one of the most talented chasers in many years and he'll either be a huge result for the punters or a huge result for the bookies on Wednesday.   Sprinter Sacre is likely to start this race as the shortest priced runner at this year's Festival and OLBG member ‘horsetaylor', who has picked the last four winners of this race, is struggling to oppose the...

THE GOLD CUP I have written a blog on the runners for this race with history to go with each runner as they appeared which many people have read and placed a mention at the bottom of the page. You can find this blog by typing https://www.olbg.com/blogs/gold-cup-possible-runners-for-next-march-with-points-views As the link will not work.

To go for the impossible. My aim... [ Read More ]

Cheltenham 2018 - The Retirement Blog - Day 2, Wednesday

 Last updated Nov 13, 7:23pm     Gman84 on Cheltenham    0 Comments    756 Views

The plane tickets aren’t booked.  The notice for work hasn’t been handed in but with three more days left, there’s still a shot at the dream so we go again. Tuesday’s blog wasn’t actually a bad effort with 2 places at 14/1 and 33/1 and a 10/1 winner delivering a 27.17pt return for a 17pt outlay.  I’m sure you can work out that that’s a 10.17pt profit. The ante post version of this blog is off to a winning start... [ Read More ]

Cheltenham 2018 - The Retirement Blog - Day 3, Thursday

 Last updated Nov 13, 7:23pm     Gman84 on Cheltenham    0 Comments    800 Views

We hit the halfway point of the festival and still I can’t hand my notice in! Wednesday proved to be as tricky as it looked and the blog could only return two placed selections for a 2.18pt return on the 17pts stakes.  After a small profit on Tuesday, Wednesday takes us into a loss but no one said it would be easy and with plenty of extra place offers around tomorrow in some open looking races.  I’m hoping the stars...

Two weeks ago the first of our Tipster Panel Previews for Cheltenham Festival Tips was published and with now just over a week to go myself and the three other panel members felt it would be a good time to reconvene and take stock of the ongoing situations regarding runners, races and the now published handicap weights. It was also a chance to reflect and look back on what each member had to say last time we gathered. You can... [ Read More ]
