Yesterday didn’t go particularly to plan, but we attack day two, Ladies’ Day, with plenty of gusto and hope. Selections for every race bar the bumper here and hopefully we can have a little more luck this afternoon at the festival.
For a short time last night, I fooled myself that I quite simply didn't fancy anything strongly and would focus my attention on Sedgefield today. Thankfully, I came to my senses and for better or for worse, we've gone full tilt today with a Cheltenham betting bonanza in the Tips Den. Here goes nothing...
At Sandown we're taking a couple of chances with some outsiders, while over at Gowran Park we are banking on the first two favourites bringing home the bacon today in the Tips Den. Good luck today whatever you're backing!
After a good day at the races for den followers yesterday, we follow up this fine Friday with one solid looking bet on a favourite up at Ayr and one extremely speculative punt at Sandown. Lets see how these two beasts get on.
Enticing action has been low on the ground so far this week since our winner on Sunday, but today there are a handful of races worth looking at. All eyes are on the festival now, but maybe we can get a little head start for the month before it kicks off.
Three jumps meetings are on today but the racing is tricky from a betting perspective. The first race at Huntingdon caught the eye however, and we have one selection for the afternoon.
I’ve always said that if a gambler can break even over a period, he is doing an excellent job. Well, thats what happened in February - The Tips Den broke even. Do I think we done well though? Nope - behind the scenes there were some shocking decisions on my part, but hey, thats betting. Here are today’s selections.
There is plenty of action around this Friday, with action from Newbury and Doncaster to back up lots of A/W racing, but to round off the month we have just the one selection from Newbury in the 2.20 Novices' Hurdle.
We concentrate on just the two races today in a bid to close out a very hit-and-miss month on a positive note. Its a shame tomorrow is the 28th and last day of February, because the last few days the racing has been terrible, and we have unfinished business with this month!
Another cross-bar day yesterday with two placed efforts. There are a few horses who catch the eye across today’s jumps cards - here are today’s selections:
