Cheltenham Festival 2009 - Day 1

Unfortunately couldn't take the week off for the biggest week in UK gambling, but have been kept up to date by Jp's brilliant live blog today. An expected busy day for Tipping Legends got off to a flier with Go Native winning in the first and Medermit a close second. From then on the day sort of stalled...but finished the day with a small profit from both services....though ROI percentage will be pretty low.

Tipping Legends had the following bets today to which I staked the following.

1.30 - Go Native 25 ew @11/1, Medermit 25 ew @ 14/1
2.05 - Tatanen 50 win @4/1 , Made in Taipan 50 ew @25/1
2.40 - Calin Alaan 50 ew @ 14/1 , Possol 25 ew @ 8/1 & Nenuphar Collonges 25 ew @16/1
3.20 - Askazar - 50 ew @ 20/1, Whiteoak 25 ew @ 18/1
4.00 - Garde Champetre - 75 ew @ 7/2
4.40 - United 100 win @ 9/2 & Caroles Legacy 25 ew @ 16/1

I also backed the two other bets they suggested:

£25 Ew Double consisting of Made in Taipan @25/1 and Nenuphar Collonges @16/1 and also had a dabble at 25 e/w on Snap tie @40/1.

A total of £1000 staked with two wins( Go Native and Garde Champetre) and two places (Medermit and Nenuphar Collonges). I believe Hills paid out on the e/w double despite Made in Taipan coming in fourth. I backed this with Paddypower who didn't pay out. I'm guessing they were restricted to three places..however if anyone knows any different please let me know!

A less busy day for Probandit with two races covered. A win in a three horse dutch by Princess Cagliari and earlier a place for Decider brought a small profit.

So profits for both services in the end..nothing ground breaking..but with so much staked I was pleased to get out of the day with something and hopefully the big profit will come later in the week.

Results from today

  • Tipping Legends Profit of £99.96
  • Probandit........... Profit of £12.01
