Cheltenham (Day 2)

Good morning all,

Day 1 was a bit in and out from a punting point of view, it’s fair to say – it started off well enough with Labaik but rather went downhill from there. Charbel falling didn’t help (would he have given Altior a race? I think he might…) and my 2 place lays of the New One and My Tent Or Yours in the Champion Hurdle effectively cancelled each other out. A Good Skin and It’safreebie didn’t do anything and Limini couldn’t get the trixie off to a flyer either, although all credit to the gallant Apple’s Jade there.

Day 2 looks like a day for some e/w multi’s, with God’s Own the cornerstone of them. Here’s my thoughts.

Cheltenham (Day 1)

Good morning all,

Well. here we go. The talking (thankfully) stops and the action begins. I shall say no more, other that to offer this piece of advice – don’t be scared to pepper a bit about on a few horses in the handicaps. This is one of the few times of the year you get to back quality horses at big prices. Don’t be put off because it’s 33’s – it’s still a good horse.

Plenty to read through this morning – I am hoping I can do similar throughout the week but my workload at the course will dictate how much time I get each day! Please do follow the Radio Winchcombe Facebook page – we’ll be live at 10.30 each morning and also the @radiowinchcombe Twitter feed, I’ll be Tweeting throughout the afternoon, including some audio stuff, along with Cathryn, and I’ll be including paddock picks and negatives as well.

The Final Countdown

Good morning,

Cheltenham Countdown Begins

I am as excited about tomorrow as a child looking forward to Christmas morning, that’s what the Cheltenham festival does for me. I was lucky enough to have been there for three days in 2014 and I can say there is no horse racing festival that can beat it, certainly not in Britain or Ireland, for atmosphere or racing spectacle.

It can be said that the National Hunt season now just revolves around these four days in March but what a four days and whose to say that focus by those in the racing media on Cheltenham from the start of the jumps season is a bad thing, after all it is racing’s Olympics and were lucky we get it every year and not every four years.

My one gripe about Cheltenham is the lack of 48 hour declarations for all the 28 races, if there ever was a right occasion for 48 hour declarations, surely its here at the Cheltenham Festival.Continue Reading

Imperial Cup Day

Good morning all,

Imperial Cup Day at Sandown but strangely it doesn’t have the same feel as perhaps it’s done in years gone by. It used to be one of my favourite handicaps of the year but this year, it just looks a bit like any other Saturday handicap.

Anyway, I’ve had a look at the four TV races there, plus one at Hereford that you may already have on your trackers after his last run that I fancy quite strongly today.
