    Whisper going RSA

    As for the ‘Close Brothers’ race I will probably back Potters legend 25/1 with Betfred, looks generous.

    Potters Legend is my main hope for this Gord, but no money down yet, as the final line up for this often has a couple of withdrawals which were unexpected. Unusually for me, I like the first 3 in the betting, but if having another go, it’ll be on Double W’s at 25’s, while Gwencily Berbas would be tempting at 33’s, but has other options.

    Good luck Gord :good:

    Good luck Bob :good: …No pressure eh?

    Maybe a little Gord, Saturday was a long day, could do without another one of those :wacko: . To be honest, after doing as well as I have with my Ante-Post selections, I’ve kind of convinced myself that I’ve used up my luck, and carnage awaits lol

    Some good looking prices there Gord. :good:
    However, is this giving a fair impression of your bets?
    Any chance of including all the ante-post bets you’ve put up on TRF – the ones you’ve already lost too?
    Black Hercules and Thistlecrack for the Gold Cup, Top Notch Arkle etc, etc.
    Is Whisper going to be deleted from your OP if he does not run?

    imo This is important because: eg Say someone backs three horses @ 20/1 to win the same amount ante-post (does not matter if it’s in one or three races). If only one of the three horses turns up and is available on the day at 13/2… Then in reality the day of race punter has a better bet.

    Ante-post punter:
    £100 @ 20/1 loser
    £100 @ 20/1 loser
    £100 @ 20/1 winner £2100 returned
    £300 staked in all
    £1800 Profit

    Day Of Race punter:
    £300 @ 13/2 winner £2250 returned
    £300 staked in all
    £1950 Profit

    It might seem as if an ante-post punter regularly getting much bigger prices on those that actually run is achieving better bets/prices/value. But if the ante-post punter has also lost a lot of money on non-runners in other races he/she may not be getting as good value as a day of race or another ante-post punter getting “shorter” prices but with fewer non-runner losers.

    I know you wouldn’t want to create a false impression of your ability.

    Good luck.

    Ginge,you know aswell as anyone my ‘ability’ is legendary but because you are obsessed with numbers your request is my demand,you will have to bear with me here mind as I have had over £4000 worth of Ante-Post bets since the day Cheltenham finished last March.Not all for this years festival I hasten to add :mail: :mail: :mail:

    My first Ante-Post bet struck for this years Cheltenham festival was on Cue Card 2 minutes after he fell in last years race.£25 e/w at 10/1,I have backed him several times since at 20/1 down and he stands to win me £2500 for about £200 worth of bets.I have lost £150 on Black Hercules for the Gold cup, Thistlecracks cost me another £100 but I stand to win £1800 from Bristol de Mai at 36’s down and I’ve also had a fiver on both More of that at 120’s and Blaklion at 150’s.My idea of the result is Cue Card to win and Bristol de mai to place that would return about £3000.The Gold cup is my biggest betting race of the festival as far as outlay is concerned
    Total £500

    My second bet for this years festival was on Ballyandy for the ‘Supreme’ £20 at 22’s on the machine but I also had £20 on Battleford at 25’s and £20 onBacardys such was the impression last years ‘Bumper’ had on me.I also have £100 worth of bets on Capitaine at 25’s.

    Gingers taking the piddle here Gord
    What’s the difference between a non runner and all those savers that lose they all return the same

    I had Thistlecrack £5 at 10/1 built up a kitty using bookies money with £30 at 9/2 and had £3 at 80/1 on the King George/Gold Cup double and a load of mickey mouse accumulator run ups which were running onto him

    day of the race if he was going off at about evens I’d have to stake a sh!t load of money to get the same sort of return and would lose a shed load of weight with bazooka bum time

    as it is the money I lost is all accounted for as I work in a job to invest money in betting instead of gambling money like ginger does

    You cant out fox a Fox Nath.Ginge pulls this old chestnut out every year.For the past 7-8 yrs I have made a 4 figure profit from Cheltenham every year and this one will be no different pal.I have definitely increased my bets though this year as I quite fancy a Nissan GTR in Matt black with ‘TAPK 1’ Number plates.

    Any chance of including all the ante-post bets you’ve put up on TRF – the ones you’ve already lost too?

    Not asking for any bet that you have not mentioned on TRF.
    Not asking for how much money is on ANY bet.
    Please don’t make out I have.

    I just think you should include all the ante-post horses you’ve put up on TRF (including the ones who are already lost). Is that too much to ask? :unsure:

    value is everything

    Fair play to you for laying it all out. Everyone I know makes money at Cheltenham every year but very few show their hand before hand. I suppose nobody likes to talk about the losers. Min has hurt me in my AntePost multiples. I was over exposed with him and I have learned from that. Between Min pulling out, Lets Dance not going to Neptune, Cause Of Causes missing The Ultima and Bellshill turning out to be **** I’d say 40% of my ante post multis are dead. 20% of my budget goes on ante post multis so 8% of my stake budget is dead. The only single bets I’ve lost so far in the ante post are Min in the Arkle and Cause of Causes in The Ultima. I’m alive in every other race and I’ve yet to bet on the Martin Pipe, Fred Winter, Coral Cup, 4 miler and Cross Country.

    Have followed your lead with Another Hero, Bouvreuil and Peace & Co.

    If you are 1/5 to make a profit does that mean you are 3/1 or 7/2 to lose then??
    I could be interested at those prices.

    Humility is a wonderful thing.

    Have you ever heard of that word Gord?
