+38pts Profit So Far In February – With Plenty More To Come !!

The month started well with a double on the 2nd in Monalee at 11/8 and then a massive each way gamble on Tornado In Milan landing at 16/1 at Wincanton. We then backed Top Notch at Sandown at 5/2 on Monday 5th we backed Annie Salts at 10/1 at Wolverhampton and on the 8th Bracken Brae to win at Chelmsford, we then had a quiet week before going in big on Cyrus Darius in the Morebattle Hurdle at Kelso and landing at 5/2.

I have always said that the jumps season is my most profitable time of the year through to Aintree in April and this year is no exception. I recommend you take a good look at the Email Service and see why it is so popular. Yes, I limit the numbers on it every month, but for a reason, to protect our prices and ensure every one of my subscribers can get on at the prices I recommend in the morning.

Cheltenham gold cup 2016

Find The Winner Of The Cheltenham Gold Cup 2016

Well another good day yesterday with our main bet Thistlecrack landing the World Hurdle and our each way bet on Bristol De Mai going close in the JLT in 2nd. The only negative was trying to take on Limini with Smart Talk who folded tamely. Still a small profit to add to our 13pts so far this week and plenty to look forward to on Gold Cup day.

On to today and the final day of the Festival 2016 and the highlight is the Cheltenham Gold Cup. I will do a full race preview below and reveal my bet for the race for you. Don’t forget to grab 10/1 on Cue Card to Place from BetBright for the race.

Cheltenham Gold Cup 2016

Cheltenham gold cup 2016A decent renewal of the feature race, despite Vautour vacating. Don Cossack (GER) looked like he had the beating of Cue Card in the King George before coming down and he is the highest rated jumper in training, he looked back near his best when winning at Thurles last time out and the only question mark is his record at Cheltenham which reads fell and 3rd. Cue Card had a breathing operation in the summer and has returned as good as ever with wins in the King George, Betfair Chase and Charlie Hall at Wetherby. He has rock solid Cheltenham form and this could well be his year to finally etch his name in history. Djakadam (FR) fell in the Cotswold Chase here at the end of January and has not been seen since, that is two falls in his career and his jumping will be put under intense scrutiny again in this race. Smad Place (FR) won the Hennessy Gold Cup and the Cotswold Chase here in January and yet he is available at double figure odds, he surely ranks as the value in the race.

I backed Smad Place in the Hennessy Gold Cup and Don Cossack in the King George on Boxing Day, but my pick for the Gold Cup this year has to be Cue Card.

Don’t forget to grab 10/1 on Cue Card To Place From BetBright – If you have not got an account ith them yet.

Have a great final day at the Festival and look forward to talking to you over the Grand National Festival at Aintree in a few weeks.

Cheltenham Festival 2016 – Already +13pts Profit – How Is Your Week Going ?

Just a quick email to see how your Cheltenham Festival 2016 is shaping up and to share my thoughts on the next couple of days, including how to get 10/1 on Thistlecrack to place in the World Hurdle

Champion Chase -SprinterSacre2 720x463I was down at Cheltenham for Day 1 and we could not have had a better start with my bet in the Supreme Novices Hurdle Altior at 4/1 landing nicely and setting us on our way. I had also put up The New One who let us down a bit behind Annie Power and Ballychorus who was an outsider I really fancied as an each way bet. So we ended Day 1 on a small profit. Then today I felt we had a really strong hand with Yanworth, No More Heroes and Sprinter Sacre. Although Yanworth and No More Heroes were turned over we landed a huge bet on Sprinter Sacre who put Un De Sceaux to the sword and meant that we finished Day 2 on +13pts profit at the halfway point.

I have just finished my race preview for Day 3 on our Cheltenham site here – Cheltenham Racecourse Tips – Day 3 Preview

Day 3 – World Hurdle Day

I always find the Thursday of the Festival the hardest day to make pay, although we backed Cole Harden last year at 14/1 which made it a very profitable day.

I think Vautour moving from the Gold Cup to the Ryanair Chase has destroyed the market and I will not be getting involved, although I do hope that Al Ferof runs a big race against the favourite as he looks too big a price at 14/1 and may be worth an each way bet. I will be having a good bet in the JLT, the World Hurdle and the Mares’ Novice Hurdle tomorrow, where I am happy to take on the Mullins mare Limini with a horse I saw run a cracking race recently and I feel has a great chance at a decent price.

Let me know how your Festival is going, what the high and the low points have been and don’t forget to grab that offer of 10/1 on Thistlecrack to place in the World Hurdle

Have a great Day 3 and I will share with you my thoughts for the Gold Cup on Friday.

Get Ready For The Cheltenham Roar – The Cheltenham Festival 2016

Well we come to the end of another busy week and the usual noise, preview nights and build up to the Cheltenham Festival 2016 is well underway.

Only 4 days to go until Day 1 at Prestbury Park and, as each year, I will be down there for the opening day, then back in the office for the other three. I just love the roar as the Supreme Novice Hurdle kicks off and this year it should be even louder with the new stand.

The great news is that my Email Selection Service Subscribers have been building up their betting banks ready for next week, with 6 winners already in the month including a double on the first day of March with I Am Colin (3/1) and Royal Milan (9/4) going in for us. We then had La Vatican (11/4), Tornado In Milan (3/1), De Kerry Man (15/8) and today our only bet was Jennys Surprise (15/8) at Sandown.

+65pts profit in 2014 at the Cheltenham Festival

As always I have been tracking horses and planning my bets for next week for the past few months and my notebook is full of horses I fancy to do well. My goal is to get near to my 2014 record profit of +65pts at the festival. We had a quiet time last year with only +23pts profit, but I fully expect to beat that next week.

Take Advantage Of The Mad Offers From The Bookies Over The Festival

As we know, there is probably no better time of year than Festival week for grabbing some mad offers from the bookies who will literally pay you for your business. The one I have taken advantage of is BetBright’s “50/1 On Any Horse In The Supreme Novice Hurdle” – so you can get 50/1 on Min, or 50/1 on Altior or even 50/1 on this week’s big mover in the market Yorkhill, who I actually think offers decent value against the favourite. So make sure you take a look at this offer and get involved.









As I do every year I will be posting my thoughts on each day of the festival up here on each day of the festival, obviously I can not share all of my bets as these are reserved for my Email Subscribers, however I will be sharing plenty of insight, stats and maybe the odd free tip – so it will be worth checking each day.

Don’t forget to also check out – of course I also run our Cheltenham course guide website and this is packed full of Festival posts and race previews each day – including our selections for every race every day – so make sure you add that to your bookmarks each day too.

Above all – enjoy the week and get involved tag me in to your tweets @racingprofits and get involved in the conversation 🙂

New Stand At Cheltenham Racecourse Officially Open

Officially unveiled by The Princess Royal last Friday, the new stand at Cheltenham Racecourse is now officially open to the public. I was down for the Saturday and Sunday of the Paddy Power Open last weekend and here is my view

Cheltenham Racecourse New Stand

on the stand.

Costing £45million and taking just 19 months to construct and complete the stand is impressive as you walk into the course. Even more impressive is the fact that Cheltenham has remained open to the public in that same period with no meet cancellations as a result of the stellar new facilities’ development.

Although by global comparison, the new grandstand isn’t the biggest in the world, it is firmly positioning itself as the best sporting hospitality complex in the country.

The new stand at Cheltenham Racecourse – A plethora of first class facilities

Looking around the new Cheltenham Club in the new stand at CheltenhamI was lucky enough to be shown around the new stand by Cheltenham boss Ian Renton and John McCririck on Sunday. The 500,000 man hours spent on site developing the grandstand has resulted in a complex that boasts a champagne bar, art owners and trainers area, 11 private boxes, 156 new toilets, the Royal Box and 11 additional private boxes.

This isn’t forgetting the Vestey Bar and the Cotswold and Cheltenham Club’s respectively.


The cost?

As you can see from the picture above I was very impressed with the Cheltenham Club, the privilege of enjoying club membership for the 16 race days per year currently stands at £5,500-a-year with a four-course lunch provided each time in association with tea and a drink upon arrival. I am sure the 250 places will soon be gone for the coming year, as it was without doubt one of the nicest places to watch racing that I have ever seen.

The grandstand also includes 4,500 square metres of balcony space that wraps around the facility offering unmatched views across the racecourse where a new 100 square metre Parade Ring screen – the biggest in the UK – dominates the space.

New record attendance set

With the redevelopment area scaling 40,000 square metres at large, managing director at the racecourse, Ian Renton claimed: “It’s amazing. The racecourse team together with the contractors have done a fantastic job in not only building the stand in 19 months but also opening the site every race day for the past season.”

What’s more, Cheltenham Racecourse had further means to celebrate lately with bumper crowds visiting for The Open on both Friday 13th and Saturday 14th November with a new record gate of 36,000 on Day Two.
