Cheltenham Trials Day Reflections
A bitter sweet day all round at Cheltenham on Saturday with the game and gutsy Many Clouds beating the short priced Gold Cup favourite Thistlecrack.
The mood then turned sombre around Prestbury Park as the news came in that Many Clouds collapsed and passed away shortly after. Many Clouds was a true legend and is the type of horse that ‘we’ the punters always admire and become fond of due to them always giving their all in every race.
Un De Sceaux won his trial race as expected and will either go for the Queen Mother or the Ryanair chase as expected at 1/2 . He will probably aim for the latter but the usual drying ground at Cheltenham come March come leave him vulnerable much like last year.
Charlie Parcs who was withdrawn by his trainer Nicky Henderson on Saturday due to the ground is one to keep an eye on for the Triumph Hurdle, and the current price of 8/1 makes each-way appeal. That price may quickly be snapped up if he goes for the Triumph Hurdle trial at Musselburgh next weekend. I know Henderson thinks a lot of this one.
Across the Irish sea on Sunday was the potential 14/1 horse I had lined up for the Supreme Novice Hurdle and that was ‘Melon’. However such is the fluid nature of the ante post market that’s now not the case with Melon now down to 9/2 after his win at Leopardstown. Although he jumped well with only a slight error on the day I’m not prepared to bet at that price considering his only other serious competition that day was Gordon Elliott’s Broken Soul, who although is a decent sort does not inspire me to back Melon at 9/2. A better proposition would be Charlie Parcs as mentioned above if he takes his place in the Supreme rather than the Triumph Hurdle at 8/1.
So that’s my early Cheltenham 2017 thoughts and the countdown begins now.
Week 4 Review Updates…
Flat Racing Master:
After a very decent first week the service has took a bit of a nosedive and that has continued into the 4th Week I’m afraid. Just one winner this week and that was a relatively short price. They still have plenty of time on their hands however. See more here:
Pro Footy Tips:
A tough week for the service but they are clinging by their finger tips to the cliff edge and have managed to stay in profit by the end of week 4. As with all ‘value for money’ services when the short priced teams win as their price suggests these services suffer, then again a few good wins can eat it into losses and throw them back into bigger profit.

Testing Pod Update…
The new Horse racing experiment has gone off to a tricky start but the Draw strategy continues to build with just over +15 points from the trade out option. Check them both out here;
That all for now and peak next week.
