Our First 2012 Cheltenham Tip

| January 18, 2012 | 1 Reply

This week my inbox has been full of emails about Cheltenham…

Understandable I suppose – It’s something to look forward to in these dark January days…

So, with that in mind, I’ve a first Cheltenham tip for you, in addition to our first four to follow update of the season.

But first, well, the less said about the darts the better…

Ted Hankey was just about home and hosed in his semi-final, 5-3 up and in complete control, only to implode and hand the match to Kist 6-5.

As always seems to be the case in these circumstances, Kist went on to win the final.

Never mind eh, as a group of young Irish philosophers once sang, c’est la vie.

We’re still on an even keel for 2012 courtesy of our 10/1 Gerrard winner and our bowls bet has also started well, with Greg Harlow making it through to round two, while one of the favourites, Merv King, has been dispatched by a qualifier.

Meanwhile, Mark Selby starts his first round match in the snooker at 12:30…

Why not skive off work to watch it here?

You know you want to!

Another fab foursome?

Last season our four to follow was a great success and, after a shaky start, this year’s effort is looking decent too.

So far we’ve had four winners at 4/11, 3/10, 1/8 and 5/2, one runner up (caught on the line) and one faller, all of which puts us £12.89 up to £10 stakes – not bad given the short prices we’ve come up against so far.

Of course it’s now that the season really starts to hot up, with more competitive racing resulting in bigger and better odds…

This Saturday Finian’s Rainbow runs in the Bet Victor Chase and is currently a best price 15/8 with Sporting Bet, while Spirit Son has his first entry of the season on the 29th in the Irish Champion Hurdle and can be backed at 8/1.

Finian’s Rainbow pile into by all means but a quick word of warning for Sprit Son – he may be held back another week so don’t bet on that one just yet unless you can get ‘non-runner no bet’ terms.

Then of course there’s Cheltenham, the pinnacle of jumps racing and so before I go, here’s a quick update of the best ante-post odds available for each of our four in their likely races, plus my advice on what to do with them…

Cue Card – Arkle – 10/1 generally – probable each-way bet but hold fire for the moment.

Spirit Son – Champion Hurdle – 8/1 with Stan James and William HillWilliam Hill Sports – hold fire.

Big Bucks – World Hurdle – 8/13 with Sporting Bet – his price usually drifts a little in the lead up to the big day as people look for the bigger priced rivals; hold fire.

Finian’s Rainbow – Champion Chase – 6/1 with Coral – these odds are likely to come in a fair way if he wins on Saturday, so back now with one point each-way for a two point total bet.
