Cheltenham Festival 15.03. - 18.03. 2016


Some say in sports nothing is more exciting, than standing next to a huge obstacle,
when those fabulous equine athletes are huffin´and puffin´over them. Unfortunately
these fences are also responsible therefor, that even plenty of high favorites do not
finnish their races, thus betting on them remains a risky business. Nonetheless i want
to have some jollies on my side and here is my rota of bets ...

- On day one trainer Willie Mullins will probably mop up many prizes with some of
  his superstars going to post. Among them is ANNIE POWER (IRE) and i will back
  her to win the Champion Hurdle @ 2.75 *** WON

- My banker bet is THISTLECRACK (foto) to win the World Hurdle. He jumps for fun
  and is a joy to watch. Odds of even money are skinny, but there we go.*** WON

- Furthermore i like the chances of BARTERS HILL (IRE) to win the Albert Bartlett
  Novices Hurdle. Unbeaten in six races this horse got an enormous engine and i
  expect him to gallop the opposition into submission @ odds of 3.5. *** 4th

- Last but not least i put a silly fiver on CUE CARD to win the Gold Cup. Colin
   Tizzard´s pride and joy looks a different horse since he received a breathing 
   operatin and @ odds of 6 is worth a dabble. *** F
