Well that's perked me up a bit !
Featured race of the day and seem to have most bases covered here.
I've had a little each way nibble on Well Chief based on a note in Paul Jones' Cheltenham guide. Age and injuries have probably caught up with him now, but what about this for a profile...
Second last year, lightly raced for his age and has form figures of 111121121 over 2 miles when coming back from a break of at least 6 weeks from his last completed start.
Otherwise I'm on Masterminded for the win, also for the winning distance. Plus big each ways on Forpadydeplasterer and Twist Magic.
Ratings and Trends have Masterminded and Twist Magic so we'll see. Kalahari King or Big Zeb would be bad results, depending on the places.
Already £40 down with Petit Robin re-routed elsewhere, put up by Paul on his midweek service before Christmas.
Petit Robin £20 e/w @ 33/1 - ANTE-POST, NON RUNNER - STAKE LOST
Masterminded to win by 6L+ £100 @ 2/1
Forpadydeplasterer £25 e/w @ 10/1, £50 e/w @ 9/1
Forpadydeplasterer £15 e/w @ 11/2 - (w/o Masterminded)
Twist Magic £80 e/w @ 15/2
Masterminded £100 win @ 10/11
Well Chief £15 e/w on BF
Total Staked £610
Well that didn't go to plan - Big Zeb puts in the jumping performance of his life to win with Forpadydeplasterer back in second. Kalahari King third, with Masterminded running a shocker back in fourth.
Backed Big Zeb one year too early !! Loss on race around £325
