I am on Monbeg Dude, but for the 1.30 I have several outsiders on ews. I am on Gligamboa on the 2.05 Outsider, but good value at 25/1 That was ante-post so I am not sure what the odds are now. Faugheen in the 3.20 Thomas Crapper in the 5.15. May make some more bets later.
Here are my picks of the day 1.30 Jollyallan 10/1 2.05. Vibrato valtat 6/1 2.40. Monbeg dude. 20/1 3.20. Jezki 9/2
Will bet them all in singles but in a small lucky 15 too ,just in case .
Good luck guys
Betting steady today as the Tuesday is never my favourite day to bet and I usually do better later on in the week where I have stronger fancies.
Here they are anyway... 1.30 L'Ami Serge 7/2. Tricky race, only betting in it because of the free bet offer if it gets beat. 2.05 No bet. Think the favourite will win but Josses Hill the best value if his jumping stands up. 2.40 Barrakilla. 12/1. My best value bet of the day. 3.20 Think Faugheen will win but Jezki is good value ew at 5/1s he has his ground. 4.00 Annie Power to win, Bitofapuzzle ew at 20/1 4.40 Sego Success 5/1 5.15 Little Jon 12/1

Here's my preview for this afternoon's events...
1.30 Small stakes on this race for me. Vautour is too short, if it was a hurdle race I would be lumping on but over fences I think I will side with APACHE STRONGHOLD 2.05 REGAL ENCORE - finished 2nd here in a bumper 2 years ago and was a close 2nd behind the highly rated Garde La Victoire in his maiden race, he proved he can stay 3 miles on his last outing and is surely on a good handicap mark off only 139. McCoy's first winner. 2.40 DON COSSACK - best form in the race and most solid profile, looked like running a big race in the RSA last year before falling. 4 wins this season. Looks an open race in behind him. Uxizandre could be overpriced for the place money at 20/1. 3.20 SAPHIR DU RHEU - Highest horse in the race on OR, Nicholls seems cautiously optimistic which is usually a good sign (Aux Ptit Soins yesterday), can't understand how this horse and Zarkandar are the same price. He won over CD on his last outing and I expect him to at least go close. Un Temps Pour Tout is interesting Each way, they paid a lot of money for this horse and the Pipe stable rank him highly, Scudamore's record over hurdles at the festival is of slight concern though. 4.00 MONETAIRE - The same stable, same owners and same jockey have won this race twice in the past 3 years with horses with similar profiles and you can't dismiss that. Also looks to be running off a good handicap mark. Champion Court may be overpriced at 25/1 for a horse that likes Cheltenham but I expect Monetaire to take the spoils. 4.40 Not really looked at this race in enough detail yet. JUST A PAR interests me as he is on a fair mark and has some good form around Cheltenham where he finished 7th in the RSA last year and 4th in a handicap on New Year's day which at one stage he looked like winning. A good amateur on board as well in Mr Biddick.
Just got back from working in Devon. Dodgy internet access so just got results. Still dreadful but not as bad as first day. I am up there tomorrow soIwill have a good time whatever but I am hoping for better results.
