MonkeyHorse3

We at Floptajoe.com don’t claim to be experts when it comes to the sport of kings, but on the back of four profitable Cheltenham festivals in a row, we decided to make our selections available to our adoring public.

The team have painstakingly trawled through hundreds of back-alley tipping sites, listened to the jockeys and stalked the trainers to bring you the best and most profitable tips for free!

As the Cheltenham festival progresses, we’ll keep you up to date with real-time tweets on @Floptajoe and will be updating this blog to keep track of how we’re doing.

We said Day Two would be different, it was worse. Our only comfort is that no one else seems to be doing any better!

Maybe we should stop calling them ‘tips’ and refer to them as ‘suggestions’ but having said that, Thursday’s betting should improve things.

 

DAY THREE  – Thursday, March 13th

1.30 – JLT NOVICES CHASE

  • Wonderful Charm – E/W –  11/2 – Difficult to go against Felix Yonger, but we’re really confident in this horse at the business end of the race.

2.05 – PERTEMPS FINAL H’CAP HURDLE

  •  Uncle Jimmy – E/W – 20/1 – A lot of contenders here, Uncle Jimmy is a crazy price though and should be there or thereabouts.

2.40 – RYANAIR CHASE

  • Benefficient – E/W – 4/1 – Great horse and amid doubts about Dynaste, it has to be the obvious choice.

3.20 – WORLD HURDLE

  • Annie Power – WIN – 6/4 – Can’t look beyond this selection here. If you don’t fancy the short odds, take a look at Salubrious at 25/1.

4.00 – BYRNE GROUP PLATE

  • Tap Night – E/W – 12/1 – Cracking horse, strong contender.

4.40 – KIM MUIR HANDICAP CHASE

  • Causes As Causes – E/W – 7/1 – Narrowly beaten in last two races but looks to be showing some real form.

5.15 – CHARITY RACE

  • No idea here, won’t be backing this unless we have some serious winnings from the previous races. 

***** Watch out for Day Four coming soon. Best of luck! *****

It was a rough first day with only one win and two places to our name so far. Assuming you placed a significant amount on the Quevega sure thing (as I did), you should be breaking even and ready to reinvest again!

Day two will be different.

DAY TWO  – Wednesday, March 12th

1.30 – NEPTUNE NOVICES’ HURDLE

  • Red Sherlock – WIN –  4/1 – Temperamental horse with a great record. Short price so you may consider Shanahan’s Turn as a cheeky each-way option at 50/1.

2.05 – RSA CHASE

  •  Ballycasey – E/W – 5/1 – A Ruby ride here and should win.

2.40 – CORAL CUP HANDICAP HURDLE

  • Sadler’s Risk – E/W – 25/1 – Difficult race to call, of the shorter prices I would consider Bayan the one to beat at 10/1.

3.20 – QUEEN MOTHER CHAMPION CHASE

  • Captain Conan – E/W – 5/1 – Best bet of today, can’t see this losing. Kid Cassidy is an excellent each-way 11/1 option too.

4.00 – X COUNTRY HANDICAP CHASE

  • Big Shu – E/W – 5/1 – Consistency is the word here. Will be there come the end and has the experience to win it.

4.40 – FRED WINTER HANDICAP HURDLE

  • Violet Dancer – E/W – 20/1 – Bit of a lottery here, but this horse has been targeting this race for a long time.

5.15 – CHAMPION BUMPER

  • Our Kaempfer – E/W – 25/1 – Another long-odds punt, bit of luck and this horse could figure.

DAY ONE  – Tuesday, March 11th

1.30 – Supreme Novices’ Hurdle

  • Wicklow Brave – E/W –  13/2 – Favourites never win this race, and it is a large field. This highly rated horse will be in contention at the end and may be worth backing each-way at this price though his jumping is a concern.

2.05 – Arkle Chase

  •  Trifolium – WIN – 5/1 – Champagne Fever will be well backed on reputation alone. We stuck a few bob on Mozoltov antepost but hopes are slim at this stage as he’s no longer in this race! Trifolium looks a real prospect here.

2.40 – Baylis & Harding Handicap Chase

  • Time For Rupert – E/W – 25/1 – Always drawn towards Alfie Sherrin come festival time but Time For Rupert is great value here and has an excellent weight advantage.

3.20 – Champion Hurdle

  • Our Conor – WIN – 4/1Hurricane Fly is highly fancied as usual, but this is Our Conor‘s best opportunity to come out on top and who can forget his performance in the Triumph Hurdle last year?

4.00 – OLBG Mares’ Hurdle

  • Quevega – WIN – 4/6 – This doesn’t really qualify as a tip, so you may look for the each-way option here. We’re going for L’Unique at a tasty 25/1. Quevega will make history this year.

4.40 – National Hunt Chase

  • Suntiep – E/W – 8/1 – Can’t see any obvious winners in this group, but we like this horse and would expect a top 2/3 finish at least.

5.15 – Rewards4Racing Novices Handicap Chase

  • Festive Affair – E/W – 12/1 – Incredibly open field here, worth a small stakes punt.
