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 …

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 …

The Cheltenham Festival is the climax of the National Hunt season and as we all study the form and discuss the possibilities we all dream of finding some winners.   Imagine if you could land several winners, in a multiple bet?  A chance to break the bank at Monte Carlo!  I took a shot at this with last years festival and frankly, came up rather short (17pt outlay, 2.6pt return), but I …
