There wasn't a bet on Monday, hence the lack of a post yesterday. It was, predictably, the calm before the storm however, and yesterday was a busy betting day. Here's how it went...
Tuesday 12th March
Not a great start to Festival week. Northern Monkey and The Sportsman Racing steered clear and reaped the rewards. Northern Monkey gave one bet which won (Aubrietia - Southwell - 2/1), as did The Sportsman Racing (Alpha Tauri - Southwell - 4/6).
The only return I had from any bet at Cheltenham came courtesy of a 4PA antepost bet (Simonsig - The Arkle - 2/1). A tale of woe elsewhere - 4PA had seven other bets when including stakes lost on antepost bets that didn't make it to the race, and it was a blank day too for On The Nose (0/5) and Winning Racing Tips (0/1).
Some of the losses were clawed back in the evening, as The Football Analyst 7-22 gave one winner from one (Preston (DNB) vs Notts County at 2.14) and Sportyy identified a winning opportunity in the Champions' League (Barcelona to qualify at 2.28). Unfortunately the one Summer Of Football bet lost half the stake.
On The Nose: Staked 3.5pts, -3.5pts.
4PA: Staked 8.5pts, -4pts.
Northern Monkey: Staked 1pt, +2pts.
The Sportsman Racing: Staked 0.5pts, +0.333pts.
Winning Racing Tips: Staked 0.4pts, -0.4pts.
The Football Analyst 7/22: Staked 0.5pts, +0.57pts.
Summer Of Football: Staked 1pt, -0.5pts.
Sportyy: Staked 2.5pts, +2.06pts.
