My 70p each way Patent ( £9.80 outlay) paid me £35.72 for just two placed horses, Special Tiara at 16-1 and Bless the Wings at 33-1, both horses finished third. Not too bad a day.

I lost some of my winnings this afternoon, on three EWs, which shows gambling ain't for me. Two fourths in 3 places, and a 5th in 4 places :( Some cracking races, and it seems that the ground is helping some short priced favourites, gallop home.

On to tomorrow, and fingers crossed for a 1:30 treble, before the Gold Cup. It's been a great meeting, maybe next year...

It would have been a £10 treble had i not been the subject of your previous scorn for betting in such a fashion :evil: .

£4 win today on Zubayr and Don Cossack and a £2 treble to include Barters Hill in the 2.50.

Hey a £10 treble is ok by me it's the 20p e/w goliaths with 8 odds on shots that make me chuckle :lol: A bit like gladbach's e/w lucky 15 with 2 even money favs in it :shock: No offence :wink:
Now if you pulled me over for doing 70 in a 30 zone could i talk you out of giving me a fine and points?You get me drift :mrgreen:

Joking aside Cue Card has to be the bet doesn't it after Vautour romped in yesterday?Or has he got Djakadam's jumping sorted and he knows it will romp in?I'm sticking with Cue Card though.

Cue Card would be nice for Mr Tizzard's pocket and Alice Plunkett's blood pressure, I just think that Don Cossack has a little bit more than Cue Card although CC is usually a better jumper than DC. I think now that Brian Cooper has got one on the board he will be more than chilled for this too.

My cheeky suspicions are with Smad Place though??

Will go e/w on Smad Place because if he is allowed to dictate up top early on and build up a healthy lead, he will be hard to topple but good ground is not his usual ground. Main win bet will be Cue Card, cannot go against his Cheltenham form and record. Don Poli and Don Cossack will be up there and not sure about Djakadam as he fell at the Trials day here in January, so is an iffy choice.

Todays Final day blowout is:


£5 win Cue Card
£5 win Uknowhatimeanharry.

End of another great Festivals racing, it is exceptionally thrilling and also fun, even when you lose a few pennies, like I generally do.. 8)

Brilliant outcome for Victoria Pendleton. I don't know what Francome and Scudamore's agenda was but their empty words make them look foolish.

Dave, the £5 win on Mr Bruno's hoss :wink: has sealed the tipping medal i believe.The overall winner of the competition though is of course,...... Embers followed by knocker, so well done to those runners.

weighed in, weighed in :lol:

A great week's racing, but let's spare a thought for those horses that didn't come home. Of those that did, and triumphed, some new stars were born.

TBF ken when Cue Card went I was concerned that he was ok as it was a dreadful fall, then I was hoping he had pulled a few down with him, then I was chuffed to see the best horse winning well cos I was on him so to speak,tis what makes National Hunt racing so enthralling.

As Embers says a few of them wont come home, we feel for the people who own and cherish them, but the sport will go on because those horses would never have been born without their future in the trade being pre-ordained.

My dad is dying of cancer in New Cross as we speak. After spending the best part of a month watching him become a pain ridden husk of a man, I for one would swap his demise whilst pursuing something that he would achieve greatness for or loved doing, than his current inhuman corrosion of life.
Its a paradox I found quite poignant this week as, given the choice, I would erect the screens around me dad and put a hypodermic or a bullet in him meself as an act of kindness.

Unfortunately we are humans driven by a religious ideology that ALL life is sacred, I doe feel that to be correct at the moment.

Rozza, so sorry to hear this very bad news you have to bear. My Dad passed away from cancer in 1997 and watching him reduce to a frail shell was heartbreaking to behold. Remember the memories you have had with him through life and celebrate his life when it sadly ends. Hard days to endure and get through. Keep your chin up.

As I saw Cue Card approach the 3rd last fence and get his nose in front before the jump, I thought he would go on to win but somehow he contrived to take off a bit too early and messed it all up. Such are the fine margins between success and failure in racing. C'est la vie.

Had a nice £42.50 win on a £2-50 e,w bet on Uknowhatimeanharry, so not too bad. Pooled my bet winnings with a mate in the pub and we ended up with £107 in our kitty, deduct the £35 each that we bet, £5 per race X7...left a profit of £37 that paid for the curry and a few more ales. The remaining £50 was put into our Grand National Kitty.

All in all, the usual great Festival with many highlights, Sprinter Scare and Thistlecrack were awesome. Mullins and Ruby Walsh are a licence to print money. Top jockey Richard Johnson did not get a winner all week. Bring on the Grand National on April 9th.
