Interesting thread because if you listened to that clown Nevison you would have thought every punter had won. Not everybody can back the shorties that win and avoid the ones that don't. I won a couple of hundred but it could have been so much better having had a win bet on Djakadam and an each-way on Holywell, both at 50/1. Beaten by a horse that wasn't even a certain runner until a couple of days ago. That's racing.

My best ever festival. Having had good 3 days and a bad Friday the last two years, I got my Friday bets sorted early and had a great day, although an offer on one I fancied helped make it. Tuesday and Thursday especially were good days already but Friday even better. Had my biggest ever win on a horse on Coneygree, was very sweet on that one and Many Clouds but went biggest on Coneygree when Will Hill boosted to 11/1 earlier. Killultagh Vic was a bonus. Could have been even better had the second not been touched off in the Triumph and the 4th come 3rd. Don Cossack and L'ami Serge were big losers for me on the downside but my best ever festival by quite some way.

Nevison, shouldn't be allowed in the ring, with a mike, in his hand next year. The punters are winning, like you say we don't all back favourites and then said today he couldn't see how the Gold Cup favourite, could get beat, this morning. Did he not watch last years Gold Cup, when it came over the last and ran about, like a drunk on the run in, softer ground as well today. How did I do, about £200 down.

£466.99 up would have won more if I had bet level stakes and a lot more of Annie Power has stood up on Tue for the 4th leg of my Mullins/Walsh Tue L15.  My big wins were Faugheen, Don Poli, Martello Tower and Next Sensation the latter was bonus win thanks to a mate.  Big losers were Ptit Zig, Balders Success & Saphir Du Rhue.

Great festival this year I was a guest of PaddyPower in the Arkle stand on Tue and the atmosphere was electric best I have ever experienced live at a sporting event. The tension before the Annie Power race was something else and the gasp when she fell...

I didn't get too involved in the Gold Cup this year as I felt the new guard might take over but had no idea which one.  I think this years Gold Cup was probably an outstanding one and using Silviniaco Conti as yardstick (I think ran up to last years from) it sort of confirms by view that last years Gold Cup was probably one one the worst ever.

I backed only one winner Uxizandre at 20/1 but I still ended up about £100 down despite numerous big prices in the frame...it's all about placing them in the right multiple bets which alas never seems to happen - you need at least three of the four placed in an E/W L15 to make a proper dent and that didn't happen for me Sad

Backing two in every race the placings on each day were:
12/1 40/1 10/1 25/1 10/1 16/1
7/1 14/1 (same race) 40/1 40/1
11/2 33/1 & 25/1 (same race) 20/1 winner 25/1 & 10/1 (same race)

Report Gibberish March 16, 2015 8:15 PM GMT
Looking back at the results over the four days...of the 27 races there were only 4 head-scratchers for me that I wouldn't back NOW:

Rivage D'or - joke of a race where anything can happen...and often does
Qualando - little form to recommend it though he was 10 lengths behind Bonito Du Berlais last year
Cole Harden - only the best of its form would've given it an E/W squeak...there were far better alternatives
Darna - I hate chancing bets on horses with a history of injury at Cheltenham though the trainer fancied it

I'm sure there are plenty on here who backed those and figured they were decent bets!
It's all about opinions...one of my mates thought I was crazy for backing Somersby but I figured
the field was shíte except for the last two champions and they had questions to answer.
