Just a heads up, but I've noticed that Stan James is the only bookie to give 1/4 odds on their E/W Cheltenham bets ( everyone else is 1/5).

Luckily for me Stan James is one of the few bookmakers that I haven't got an account with, so I think I shall be joining and taking advantage of not only their better E/W odds, but their new customer free bet offer.

Anyone got any experience with Stan James? Or should I stay well clear?

Decided to get some practice in for Cheltenham

3.00 Sandown - William H Bonney
3.15 Wolverhampton - Keystroke
6.15 Chelmsford - Fleckerl
4.30 Ayr - Lochnell

Fiver e/w = £2183

There goes a tenner I'll never see again

Edit: Cheers for the heads up A&C. Originally had Aintree My Dream on my acca but switched for Fleckerl.

Fleckerl is running on the AW at Chelmsford tonight. I've been following that one.

Moon Racer in the CH now

So with that in mind, (and FO out) the likelihood is;
Melon - Supreme
Neon Wolf - Neptune

Don't understand why Mullins / Ricci running VVM and Limini in the Mares and no one in the Champion, doesn't make sense

Yeah me too. The only thing I got was Altior as the first part of an Acca ( which is hardly surprising) and a poxy £4 back from an E/W Yankee I did.

Still, I have a £10 free bet to use from Skybet, so I have to decide where I can piss that up the wall :D.

I did have Apple's Jade coming in for me but didn't net me much - definitely Bookies 1 Punters 0 after the first day.

I'm actually kicking myself I didn't try to claw back some money on the tricast for that race. It was obvious it was going to be those three, but I didn't want to chase my losses. Gamblers hindsight is a wonderful thing.

I think Regal Encore is worth a little e/w just because R. Power is riding like a man possessed at the moment

On Skybet Tawaaflq is (currently) 7/2 to win the 2.30 at Lingfield today but for some strange reason he's a massive 5/1 in the insured bet market, so not only do you get a bigger price if he wins but also if he finishes second you get your stake returned.

Fair enough it's not a nailed on winner but it must be a decent value gamble.
