    Heh, my tip in the first came 4th. Tip in the second was nowhere, but fortuitously I'd forgotten to actually press the button! Also recouped some cash in a free fall promo from the other day

    Cooldine in the Gold Cup at 10/1 might be a good e/w today. I've no bets on today, but so nearly broke even this week - spent 40, won 38.70 :)

    Just got back, cracking day. Finished slightly down, though was on IC for the Gold Cup, but also on Kauto - quite sad watching him go down. Shame about the weather, though it meant we had loads of space to watch the races. Back to Cheltenham around end April for another slightly less exciting meeting, but hopefully armed with experience!

    Nobody any money to bet this year, eh? Time for Rupert looks good for the 2.40.

    Had a flutter or 2 yesterday, an outside shot in the first and then a place in the Champion Hurdle. Not really looked at today's card. Might save it for tomorrow, when I can actually watch the races...

    I don't bet much, but my Grandad was one of those small amount/long term gamblers, kept little notebooks detailing his fortunes, they went back years. I always bet on the Gold Cup in memory of him.

    btw any tips I have are of course not my idea. I know nothing. But this friend did make me 75 last year from a fiver, so who knows?

    Also, I just got a 20 bonus from quidco for opening a new account with Paddy Power & depositing a tenner, so I can't actually lose.

    Never a good thing to say when gambling, I've found :)

    Going back for Gold Cup on Friday again. The only tip I have this year is Grands Crus in the World Hurdle tomorrow. My missus's dad know his horses, and has been tipping him for a few months - sadly when he raced last month he won by about 10 lengths and his odds for the WH came straight in from 20s to about 5/2... balls! What makes me think he'll beat Big Bucks is that in that race Tom Scudamore had to rein him back throughout - he literally runs like a bloody whippet with his tongue practically hanging out. I'll be heavy and on the nose with him.

    Ante-post is where you get win your big bucks.

    Caved and had a few low flutters. Really should do a yankee or something instead though.

    Nice one. I lost 1 on Big Zeb, but got 8 off my 1 on First Lieutenant.

    They gave me a 10 free bet and I put it on a double for tomorrow and Friday that could potentially hit 20K. Which would be nice.

    C'mon Plan A...
