    Rhinestone Cowboy - Cheltenham 2020

    If you want a quick sense of what bets are cooking on the forum look no further. Heavily influenced by the great posters on FJF, with a sprinkling of Mark Howard and a dash of my own views.

    This might look a bit different to others as if I listed each bet individually differentiating between free bets and cross sport multis it would likely take me to the Festival just to get my diary up to date. The odds therefore will appear inflated including free bets and cross sport multis where the last leg is the Cheltenham horse and the previous legs have already won. I will put the biggest real odds taken in brackets next to the inflated odds. The points staked are real money.

    Should say that after a couple of great years and access to a couple of 365 accounts I’m much more heavily involved than I otherwise would be at this stage.

    Anyway I’m going to start with the bad news:

    Total lost as a result of losing cross sport multis, free bet farming and cash out: 21 points

    Ideally would split that total but have been lumping all together this season (majority down to losing cross sport accas). On to me bets:

    Main updates for the week Bright Forecast (RSA), Champagne Classic (Any race) and Reserve Tank (JLT), also had small top up for the RSA on the latter. Both BF and RT have received a bit of support this last week (especially the latter) which twisted my arm earlier than planned. Also added Minnela Indo (Any race) to my list above, was an old bet I forgot to include originally.

    One point to note on tactics reflected by Reserve Tank is that generally I'd prefer to back a horse in 2 races with 365 than back Any race if confident there are really only 2 options. Hope would be to cash one out later in the season if target becomes clear. Risk is not cashing out in time before injury and therefore losing double the stake.

    The joys of been able to cash out, if only, license to print money. If you can do it absolutely smash it lads.

    Main updates this week were cashing out Pic D'Orhy for the Arkle after the Nicholls stable tour, switching my Reserve Tank back up bet from the RSA to the Arkle also after trainer comments (appreciating he could still go anywhere) and adding Saldier for the CH. I'm heavily involved with Klassical Dream including many of my multiples, so having a back up for this race from the same stable at a decent enough price seems like a good idea. Also cashed out the e/w bet on Getaway Trump and reinvested win only. Boosted the odds on a few with free bets
