5.15 Cheltenham

Gutted, SLH's tip Benedict Spirit blunders at the last, loses momentum and is beaten half a length, £240 @ 4/1 and a £1200 swing against me there.

Well this is it. 25 races down, just one to go - absolutely knackered to be honest and be glad when it's all over.

Ante post bet on Tataniano is a non-runner due to ground issue, but on NRNB so stake will be returned.

Still got Beggards Cap at 20/1 ante-post.

See how this goes.

Gutted ! Thought sure Consigliere was coming to win the race there, traded very low in running but in the end couldn't get past French Opera, No matter though Pigeon Island came up the hill best to beat both of them. Couldn't have had that one. £475 lost there and it's been a bad half hour as two trade very low in running for no reward.

Going to have a break now - put everything together and see what the final score is. Disappointing way to finish.

I guess it's difficult to manage so many bets.
It's definately very difficult to keep a running blog.
Cheltenham, and most big meetings, are notorius difficult.
You did exceptionally well in the circumstances and we all appreciated your efforts and your honesty.
