Who's already placed a bet for Cheltenham 2018?
Ok lads, this year has come and gone.. some good, some bad and some ugly.. anybody placed a bet for next years frstival? Or what are we thinking of backing if we haven't already?
Altior QMCC and Death Duty RSA double at 80/1, only £5 back in Feb
I've had an each way patent on Melon (Arkle), Douvan (GC) and Cause of Causes for the X-C just because I had some winnings sat in the account and I thought each price was a little big at double figures.
No more until October most likely!
Posted in another thread , but . - Thistlecrack - king George , Labaik -Ch .hdl ,Might bite - gold cup . - patent.
Cracking bet that's looking now LR, even with the possible opposition

So my 'enviable' position on Death Duty doesn't look so string now then
Trip/Ground/Track/Overhyped? I've far from given up but not the performance I wanted to see (with RSA 2018 in mind i'd have been more than happy with a performance similar to No More Heroes 3rd).
2 bets stand out to me now, primarily the former:
Nichols Canyon - Stayers Hurdle - 8/1
Think he can be the key player in this division. Looks to have found his trip. No doubts on stamina on how fast the race was run with Cole Harden. Still only 7. Owner has previous with this type of horse. And the key - no doubt whatsoever in target.
Cause of Causes - Cross Country - 10/1
Completely got him wrong this race. 'Only 9' which compared to others in the division is young / on par. Josies Orders was my best fancy of the festival last year before getting injured but at the same age, with injury to comeback from i'm wary of his chances at least for now and there's a 0% reason why you'd back JO until next Winter before the Cross Country races kick in. Auvergnant the other for Bolger will improve being young for this sphere but I see nothing from this years race to be able to beat CoC again. Can see Elliott keeping him to these races for the next 2-3 years alongside nationals. Don't see any other race they'd go for at the festival and his festival record is ridiculous. Josies Orders was 4/1 after last years race. Big price for me...
Yorkhill I want to follow whichever race but i'll let the dust settle and it'll be the usual Mullins merry go round!
Nichols Canyon.... Will anything affect his odds between now and the start of the season?
9/1 is avail?
I saw they are sending him over to America... I might have to request odds on Rawnaq before he beats him at Aintree!
I CAN see the case, but those prices are skinny enough considering we have 360 days to go..... I haven't been put off by ante post at all, and I'll go in to detail later on in the week... but there is no rush to do anything before Aintree is there?
The 10/1 on CoC did catch my eye but as you say we've still got Aintree and Punchestown, i'll happily get the season finished before looking at next year
