Well done good investment with free bets, with a nice return, the bookies will be closing your accounts next for winning too much.

Good idea and it is free what more do you want and when a win appears makes it even better.

I try and play with pennies with ante post so when the big day comes along I have a certain amount on and it never cost me heavily.

I may give this a try and thank you for the insight.

Congratulations again :nap:

Great starts for my antepost free bets! Appreciate It 8/11 (9/1 ante post) romps home for an easy £180.00. Ballyadam takes the runner up spot, would have been another £40.00.
Honeysuckle wins the champion hurdle impressively at 11/10 (5/2 ante post) for a £75.00 free cash return.
Day 2
Put The Kettle On £15 @ 7/1 (SP 17/2) wins the QM Champion Chase returned £105.00
The Big Breakaway £5.00 @ 16/1 in 3rd (SP 12/1) returns £0.00
Monkfish £10 @ 11/2 wins the Brown Advisory Chase @ 1/4 ON. Returns £55.00
Current returns £415.00 with 2 days to go.
DAY 3
Chantry House ante post 14/1 & 8/1 wins the Marsh Novices Chase @ SP 9/1 with Envoi Allen departing early. Another £150.00 returned.
Quilixios takes the Triumph Hurdle £10.00 at 16/1 (SP 2/1) returns £160.00
Minella Indo wins the Gold Cup £15.00 @ 8/1 (SP 9/1) returns £120.00
A Plus Tard finished within 2 lengths.

Finally finished the Cheltenham Festival with a very healthy return of £863.00 free cash despite 8 runners clashing & placing in races & a few that had pre festival setbacks.
Brilliant! Well done!

Had a nice additional surprise from my selections.I also won first place in the Tote 10 to follow Cheltenham free stable. Had 4 choices of prizes, all inclusive hospitality & hotel for two on either Cheltenham Gold Cup Day, Ascot Gold Cup Day, I think the Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown though I opted for annual membership at Cheltenham 2022, and private marquees for the November & Festival meetings too. I’ll remember this festival for a great many reasons now! Hope to meet some of you there wearing your OLBG scarves!

DAVIDADAN what a great surprise, congratulations, absolutely brilliant, pray everything is all well for next year for you to enjoy, great to read, makes my day when reading about someone getting a great surprise, that is a BOOM and a half, good one you.

When my luck is down and out and read what other members achieve on here really gives me a feel good factor, that surprises do happen.
Honest, no Bull____, as things, do occur from time to time.

Just like when I saw my granddaughter Sophie walk from one end of the living room to the other without being aided was great to watch, as she has cerebral palsy in her legs and she is three.

You enjoy

Thanks Colin. That must be so uplifting, so pleased for you! I didn’t actually enter the main Tote 10 to follow competition this festival as you can lose heart over the years, I’m not even contemplating looking at the final results and payouts. 15 years ago I stopped doing the daily jackpot along with the placepots, got a bit expensive. That very day, all six won in my placepot for a very nice return, alas the jackpot I didn’t do paid over a grand. 🤮🤣

I guess it was inevitable! Hills are still offering Scratch of the day promotion but with restrictions! Opt In and place a £10 win or £10 each way bet on Horse Racing and get a £5 free bet to use on Horse Racing (excludes specials & future races). Oh well I had a good run!

Would be great if someone make a review about all free bets for Cheltenham and others.

Typical! Chased the Tote up for my annual membership prize weeks ago, admin error it wasn’t sent despite having booked & cancelled travel & accommodation for this 3 day October opening weekend. Spoke with one of their Directors who couldn’t be more apologetic, offering me complimentary travel & hotel this weekend. Too much hassle at too short notice now so they’ve gladly carried the full badge & hospitality days over to 2022/23. Oh well!

After using my free bets in the Summer for ante post football bets I decided to back AMERICAN MIKE yesterday in the Champion Bumper on March 16th 2022 at 12/1 each way after G.Elliott had a cracking start in the Down Royal card & before the above won the 4.25 at the course .

MINELLA INDO had a decent prep race yesterday in a cracker that saw Frodon win with Galvin in 2nd , went out from 5's to 6's for the Gold Cup so I'll back him on Monday night .
