No roar this year but in some ways it may not be a bad thing with the focus purely on the racing. As much as I love a crazy feathered hat I can happily do without…

This will be my only post and will be updated the night before each days racing. I’ve listed a few of the accas I’m on for now and have a thread on twitter with the offers we know are out there and live already.

I also have a Chelt Comp on the go. Takes a couple of minutes to enter, £10 entry and the prize pool will be split 50-50 to the winner and their chosen charity. As a bonus ColossusBets have also given £50 in freebets so I will do a draw for £10 on Tues/Weds/Thu and £20 Fri. Anyone taking part will be automatically entered. All details on the entry form

Good luck!

Day 4 Picks

EW L15 (betfair)

14:30 Barbados Bucks (5 places)

As his name suggests, this horse has some series pedigree. Born out of the 4-time Stayers’ winner Cheltenham hero Big Bucks. Barbados Bucks himself has a perfect record over the ground conditions and has placed in 7 of 8 races going left handed, winning 4. He comes here looking for 4 wins in a row and would be shocked if he is not involved come the finish.

15:05 Al Boum Photo

The biggest race of the festival and Al Boum Photo is looking to land the Gold Cup for the third year running. I have actually opposed him the last two times and but love a good story. His stats probably don’t need much explaining but he is 2 for 2 on the ground, 2 for 2 over the distance and 2 from 3 at the track. A win here would make him only the 3rd horse in history to have won this 3 times, I’ll give the first two people that tell me the others a free £5 to use today.

16:15 Shattered Love (3 places)

Bit of a cliff horse for me but Shattered Love has served me well. The only horse in the race to have won at the track, albeit 2 have not run here before. Ground won’t be an issue and she handles the trip. If she can run anywhere near her JLT Novices’ chase in 2018 she should be competitive here.

16:50 Galopin Des Champs (5 places)

A very interesting horses for the final race of the festival. Just 4 runs to his name with the last 3 in the UK all on pretty heavy ground. The big pull factor for this horse was result of his last race in February at Leopardstown. He finished 6th at 100/1 however the horses ahead of him included Appreciate It, Ballyadam, Blue Lord. He was 9 lengths behind Appreciate It who of course went on to win the Supreme by a monstrous 24 lengths!
