I know little about racing but love a little flutter on Cheltenham.

I'm on Ballyadam (1320), Abacadabras EW (1505) and Busselton (1615) today.

Completely free £5 bet on Paddy Power FYI.

Nothing exciting

1.20 Metier
1.55 Captain Guinness (really didn't see any point betting against Shishkin in this but had a dream about Guinness last night so its a sign and all that!)
2.30 Aye Right
3.05 Epatante
3.40 Dame de Compagnie
4.15 Houx Grix

I have been absolutely hopeless at picking winners the last few weeks (not a proper gambler by some distance but watching the racing on a Saturday afternoon has become quite the lockdown highlight for me and the missus!) so fingers crossed!

All about place betting for me and especially at the big events when surprises can happen and big prices end up in the frame.

Short and sweet from me today  Wink Horse

Here are mine. Good luck all!

Although, I'm a bit pissed off that ITV has created a montage/VT for last years Chelt Fest, essentially justifying going ahead.

They would've been better making a film that celebrates all the good and focus on being able to have the event this year in the right way.

To boot they include Piers "opinion flipper" Morgan featured in it. Almost in a starring fucking role.

Haven't got a Scooby about the horses, but bored/working from home, for a bit of fun picked 4 selections based on posts above and put on a Lucky 15 EW (and I don't even know what that is, only that Charlie Austin mentioned it on Twitter last week, but I think it gives me multiple chances to win  Grin Sad Grin).

First selection in 13.55 won.  Beginners luck?Huh?Huh?Huh?Huh?

Chunky, a L15 basically gives you all permutations of your selections. The e/w also gives you the place part of all perms too Smiley

So your "stake" is on an individual bet but lots of smaller bets depending on how much you put on per stake but even 10p e/w on a L15 can bring in a decent days return if all successful. Probably money back on around 2winners or 1 win and 2 places.

Cheltenham fairytale stuff there.
Vintage Clouds, a forgotten runner up.
First Cheltenham Festival win.
11 years old - seen as a plodder.
Anything but, showed the young'uns how to race 3m+.
Great stuff for Vintage Clouds.

Showed class throughout. 33/1 (28s at post) and in cheek pieces too.

Yeah so if you think of it as splitting the bet up into win and place. The  right now you have 1 winner and 2 places.

This means you've lost your win part of the 4 fold but the place part is alive. Your place part for a 4-fold, four trebles, six doubles and four singles is still alive (15 perms). Your win part for a treble, three doubles and three singles are still alive (7 perms).

Basically, get a winner next and it makes your last selection much more exciting, but even any place from here puts you in beer money territory. Plus you usually get a bonus payment if you only get one winner on the win part (from memory but winning on the place may negate that).

keep it fun Smiley
