THE HIGHWAY TO CHELTENHAM 2016
Our Antepost portfolio begins today. As we build up to the festival we will expand on this and we will also take advantage of the bookmaker offers. Updates will be emailed to you!
URGENT FIRST BET: TAKE 10/11 FOR MARES HURDLE
ANNIE POWER 10/11 = take 10/11 for Mares Hurdle before today’s race at Punchestown. Paddy Power are offering 10/11 (CLICK HERE FOR ODDS). She runs on Wednesday at 1.35. Whilst she is 10/11 and will win, she will be cut and the 10/11 will go!
You may recall she fell at the last in 2015, when the race was won. She will be aimed at this again and will go off SHORTER than 10-11. Banker for the meeting!
FESTIVAL BANKER ACCAS
These are my Festival Accas, at the early prices. If you can put this on with Paddy power. These are:
You will notice that the WORLD HURDLE and CHAMPION HURDLE are Non Runner No Bet. Which is absolutely as it suggests. Paddy Power are BEST PRICES on all THREE horses.
Douvan for the Arkle is also a banker, which at 2/5 can be added to your Festival Banker Acca
- Annie Power 10/11 (Mares Hurdle)
- Faugheen 4/11 (Champion Hurdle)
- Thistlecrack 11/8 (World Hurdle)
- Douvan 2/5 (Arkle Chase)
This pays 7.6/1
13/2 CUE CARD FOR THE GOLD CUP
I really like the chances of Cue Card for the Gold Cup. Best price again is Paddy Power. Best odds HERE. Since having a wind operation this is a completely different horse, he is chasing a £1m bonus, as won by Kauto Stare for winning the Betfair Chase and King George. The Gold Cup will make it £1m. With no Conygree, who we backed last year, this is a great price. He has shown under Paddy Brennan that they have a great partnership. I think with doubts about many he is a HUGE BET at 13/2. Take the price now, PP are Non Runner No Bet!
“I think he has a massive chance as Cheltenham brings out the best in him.”
One final bet, I think will go off odds on…
MIN SUPREME NOVICES 7/4 PADDY POWER
They think the world of this horse, another Willie Millins horse but they have so many good horses that when they think this much of one t is compared to some very very special horses. I think this is the one the Irish will bank on, get the Festival off to a flyer. It is the FIRST RACE remember. So 7/4 NOW is value. BEST ODDS HERE
