Just a quick round-up of all the results from today, and a very good start to the festival.
Wasn't feeling that confident going into today - it looked the sort of card where it was going to be hard to win much, but quite easy to lose plenty ! However my early pessimism was misplaced.
Managed to back the winner of every race at Cheltenham, as well as some big priced ones which made the frame. Used a combination of the outright tips and also Paul Jones overnight trends e-mails, Formbet's ratings as well as other bits and pieces I've read along the way.
Cracking day for The Form Guru with two winners advised at 40/1 and 33/1, and a very welcome change in fortunes.
Tipping Legends also had a couple of winners - Sizing Europe and Quevega, while Formbet's outright picks found Binocular and a place for Get Me Out Of Here.The ratings themselves performed very well but I already had most of the selections covered elsewhere so didn't double up on the bets.
Nothing from Punter Profits from two selections - indeed General Miller was on the floor at the very first jump of the meeting !
Paul Jones ante-post bets didn't really fire on the first day, with The Package being the best result. However, there's plenty more from Paul for the rest of the week and he reckons the next couple of days are the strongest.
Last word today goes to SLH who gave out two winning bets - Quevega in the last at Cheltenham, followed immediately by The Kealshore Kid in the next race at Sedgefield.
A long way to go, but very pleased with today. Looking forward to another busy day tomorrow, and I'll be back on here around 9am in the morning.
