Last year’s Festival Yankee included Cole Harden who won the World Hurdle @ 33/1 (advised) and Arctic Fire who ran second in the Champion Hurdle at 16/1 which more than doubled invested stakes. And their Antepost advices not only included Cole Harden, but Coneygree advised at 33/1 for the Gold Cup (NRNB to boot), as shrewd a piece of tipping as you’re likely to see!
I've had a sneak preview of this year's bet and like what I see… to just 50p ew (total stake £11) it returns a whopping £7.5K if they should all win (big if I know but you've got to be in to win it!)…. and they all look to have a cracking eachway chance which will also return a great profit.
All in all it's a freebie that will deliver plenty of excitement and hopefully a decent (or whopping) profit and again it's completely free so you've nothing to lose really.
I'm not sure how long this will be available so advise you strongly to waste no time and grab it while you can
Here's our little piece of Jamie for this week. You can get all of Jamie's sports bets from the Betting School Insiders Club.
Goals at the Emirates and more misery for Man City
A very rare losing week last time out. Sunderland did the business for us for a second week running by being involved in a ‘both teams to score’ match but our two selected players failed to deliver in the ‘to score’ market. Ross Barkley hit the post against West Brom which was a double whammy – not only did we not cash in on him but the fact it stayed out limited our chances of getting over 2.5 goals in that match. Roberto Firmino in the meanwhile managed to stay off the scoresheet despite Liverpool racking up six at Aston Villa. But these things happen, that’s why we stick to a balanced staking plan and we’re still well in profit so on we go.
It’s FA Cup weekend and I normally stay away from it because of uncertainties regarding motivation and team selection but this time I’ve picked up on a couple of opportunities.
Arsenal have bigger fish to fry than the FA Cup and next midweek they’re up against the biggest fish of all…Barcelona. My guess is Arsene Wenger will pick a combination of youngsters, players coming back from injuries, players who normally find themselves on the subs bench and may just one or two regular starters. We’ll probably see Danny Wellbeck, Kieron Gibbs, Joel Campbell, Callum Chambers, Mikel Arteta and Theo Walcott all get a game. All players more than capable of beating Hull at home, despite the fact the visitors are in fine form and leading The Championship.
A good starting point is to try to picture the final score. My guesses would be 2-1, 3-1, 3-2, or a slightly more unlikely 3-0. I say that for two reasons: firstly Petr Cech, Hector Bellerin and Laurent Koscielny are all likely to be rested and that will make a huge difference in terms of their ability to keep a clean sheet. Secondly, recent FA Cup matches show they often concede goals irrespective of who they’re playing. Here are their last few FA Cup matches, most recent first: Burnley (2-1), Sunderland (3-1), Aston Villa (4-0), Reading (2-1), Man Utd (2-1). No prizes for picking out the pattern: a win with the match going over 2.5 goals. So that’s a good bet with Paddy Power going 2.62 on the Arsenal win and over 2.5 goals.
So if we really fancy Hull to have a go and score once and possibly even twice, who will be on the scoresheet? Abel Hernandez is their top scorer by a country mile with 16 league goals and then it’s a tie between Mohamed Diame and Sam Clucas on five. It’s virtually impossible to split the pair with recent form, long-term career stats, goals per game ratio and price all very similar so we’ll hedge our bets.
As regards Chelsea v Manchester City, there’s not a huge amount to say other than the fact I think Chelsea will win. They’re in the better form, they’ll be happy with their display in Paris despite losing 2-1 and will probably field a pretty strong side given they have no midweek commitments in Europe. This is a competition Guus Hiddink will be taking very seriously given there’s a very realistic chance they could go out to PSG and a Top 4 league finish seeming increasingly unlikely because of the huge number of teams between them and fourth place. If City are losing at home against Leicester and Tottenham with the likes of Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Fernandinho (all likely to be rested ahead of their match in the Champions League) in the team, I’m not sure how they’ll avoid defeat away at Chelsea without them.
