    5 caps so far the Friday this March will be my 6th and a big cap at that as it’ll be my stag weekend two weeks before I’m a retained jockey!

    If you like racing and you like a drink (and you have forgiving better halves) it’s easy! Best week of the year.

    That said, our group is getting tired of Friday’s. Too busy. The weakest card in my view (certainly least punter friendly) and WAY too many coked up lads about, who don’t know what a handicap is. Tues and Thurs my favourite days every year.

    I'd maintain if you can manage to drink 4 days in a row at the same pace, you aren't drinking hard enough

    Having 'a few' is for the weak.


    I actually like to keep a fairly clear head until it's all over. Helluva lot of time and money spent to start making drunken betting decisions for me

    I do the opposite, get leathered early doors and then lay off to ensure all is well for the following day.

    Only been on the Friday once, very different to Tues/Wed not so much that it puts me off going again but nothing touches the Tuesday

    That sounds the voice of experience HF! Exactly what I do... the days of being in Cheltenham late at night are long gone. Few pre match pints from 11... have a good go on course all day then an early dinner about 7 and normally back at our house by 10. A good kip each night is paramount for stamina.
