  • And so it is that we arrive at the final day of the Cheltenham Festival. There's no hiding it, this has been the toughest four day festival for punters for many a year.

    We cannot be surprised at that fact. While we were pleased that some of the hot favourites never made it to the course, so making the races much more open and competitive, that also meant finding winners would be more challenging. And so it has proved. I've found this festival to be the toughest for six years.

    Even in years when I've 'only' had . . .

  • Did you see Might Bite win for us at 4/1? If not, I will not spoil things for you. Go find a recording of the race, especially the finish. It's hilarious. My heart rate increased somewhat.

    The sun beat down on Ladies' Day at Cheltenham, which was good to see. But, and I am furious about this, they are watering the racecourse overnight tonight. This habit of watering without needing to annoys trainers whose horses prefer Good ground. Racecourses should only be watered if the ground is so firm that it is dangerous to horses.

    That is not . . .

    Apple's Jade doing what she loves to do to me. That is winning when I don't back her, and coming second when my money is down on her. She beat off both Vroum Vroum Mag and Limini to ensure trainer Gordon Elliott had a very good day . . .

  • So here we are, day one of the mighty Cheltenham Festival and the forecast for the UK is for a largely dry week. That will suit some of my ante-post bets (some of which were placed as long ago as April 2016!)

    Ground on the soft side of Good will be to the liking of many trainers. They will be praying the course is not watered. It shouldn't be. If we have proper ground, leave it be. Racecourses should only ever be watered if the ground is so firm as to be potentially dangerous to the horses.
