I was going to leave him alone this year but what Ive seen upto now he has some decent horses that all seem to be hitting a bit of form so I will go with him again, along with Ruby riding for willie mullins. :niceone:

Right all you experts (and those that like a horse for appearence or its name) bit of fun comp for the four days of cheltenham, so please have a go, but of course if you like a flutter you can go ahead and back your donkeys :grinny:

A few simple rules nothing to technical in the scoring just going to keep it simple
1st 10 points
2nd 8 --"--
3rd 6 ---"--
4th 3 points (where 4th place is applicable)
Sould there be a dead heat (very unlikely)then both horses will get the FULL points for that place.
IF YOU PICK A HORSE AND IT DOESNT RUN TOUGH NO POINTS :grinny:
AND THE LAST RULE IS ONLY TWO (2) FAVOURITES PER DAY. WILL YOU PUT AN ASTEREK BESIDES YOUR CHOSEN FAVOURITE PLEASE.IF ANY OTHER HORSE WINS AND IS RETURNED FAV THAT DAY SORRY NO POINTS :grinny:

Cheltenham starts on Tuesday 13th March for four days there are 7 races on each of the days so @10 for first there is 70 points a day at stake and over the four days 280, see who can come close to that magic figure. If you did and you didnt back your nags you'd be as sick as a parott.

FINALLY ALL MUST POST THE NAMES OF THE 7 HORSES FOR THAT DAY BEFORE 13.00 (please write them down in race card order IE 13.30, 14.00 etc that way makes it easier for scoring for me.) I am the cheltenham steward for this comp so will allow a bit of freeway in posting time, but certainly entries not allowed if posted after the off of first race. :grinny:
As i say just for fun unless tomtom wants to make you PS champion tipster in your avatar or something.

Unfortunately I will have to post my picks the night before each day as I quite busy with work.

I'll try to avoid breaking the fav rule but will be vulnerable to market shifts.

I did start to post regards that but then deleted it. What Id thought was that if someone picks a horse, thats not fav in their paper, by off time weight of money on line or on course could make their pick fav so I had thought apart from the two favs permitted (marked with an asterik) if that did happen they would only be given 8 points for a win instead of 10, but not sure if that would be fair!!?

I wouldn't change it Journo, it'll get messy. I suppose it'll force me to look for bigger prices as favs and 2nd favs are likely to flip flop in certain races. Rub of the green and all that.

Do my best mike ! the wife is on her final 12 days of radiotherapy and some days i might not have the time to look through the runners as we are backwards and forwards to the hospital.

Hope no horses or jockeys are injured ! especially the horses as cheltenham has stiff fences and claim a few sometimes.

Hopefully will get home from work in time to watch the racing.

Early selections as i am off to work very soon.

Cheltenham 13/3/18

1.30.....Summerville Boy.
2.10......Petit Mouchoir.
2.50.....Vintage Clouds.
3.30.....Buveur D'Air *fav*
4.10.....Apples Jade.*fav*
4.50.....Pylonthepressure.
5.30....Mister Whitaker.


Tips for anyone not up on horse racing & having a go on journo,s cheltenham comp.

With all the recent rain the going is Heavy/Soft at the meeting . Equivalent to us running in boggy ground really but we dont have 10 plus stone on our backs.
Therefore try to pick horses proven to go in those conditions. (see their past form and what the ground was like when they won)
Some horses prefer top of the ground conditions (good/good to firm/firm going) avoid these if possible !
Look at lightly raced horses as some trainers are canny and save their best for this meeting because of the prize money.

Its a competitive meeting and very open so whatever you choose will have a chance and with a bit of luck in running you could select a winner.

5 of my selections have just been picked at random ! the other 2 look nailed on favs but its not always the case....LOL otherwise the bookies wouldnt be in business.

I wont be investing any money with the bookies but will try to enjoy journo,s comp.



Have a good one.
