5.15 Cheltenham

SLH's second tip of the day Solway Minstrel just got turned over at Huntingdon - traded 1.55 in running but could only finish third.

Time for the Bumper now, couple of ante-post plays with Day Of A Lifetime and Frawley both advised each way. Few other digs as well, see how it goes.

Bets Placed

Day Of A Lifetime £30 e/w @ 10/1, £20 e/w @ 12/1
Frawley £50 e/w @ 25/1
Shot From The Hip £25 win @ 7/1
Tavern Times £25 e/w @ 10/1
Shot From The Hip £60 win @ 7/1
Drumbaloo £30 @ 10
Elegant Concorde £30 @ 14

Total Staked £395

Well, big shock there. Cue Card romps home at 40/1, Al Ferof second and my ante-post pick Frawley a remote third. Frawley keeps the damage to a minimum and it's about a £30 loss on the race.

A cracking day JP. Makes it worth the effort when things goes the way you want, doesn't it?

An important stat in bumper for next year.
If the favourite is unbeaten going into race then lay the win bet.

Both Rite of Passage (2009) and Shot in The Arm were backed into 7/2fav and beaten but the stat applies to 13 races from 18 renewals (13-13 possibles)

4yo winner with a single run was a first this year but the stats this year were subject to weather and the fewer bumper races available - especially Naas meetings.

Like your blog as it gives a good insight into tipsters value.
