FRIDAYS BET, Cheltenham

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

FRIDAYS BET, Cheltenham

Post by goldandblack » Wed Mar 17, 2021 11:05 pm

Cheltenham Gold Cup Chase.
Link to Runners, Riders and Current Odds

3:05.
BETTING FORECAST
5/2 Al Boum Photo, 9/2 A Plus Tard, Champ, 8/1 Royale Pagaille, 10/1 Minella Indo, 12/1 Frodon, Santini, 14/1 Kemboy, Native River, 25/1 Lostintranslation, 100/1 Aso, 150/1 Black Op.

A Plus Tard ...Classy form at shorter but showed staying depths when snatching late 3m win in December
Al Boum Photo ...Won this for the last two years and this is a perfect test for him; very reliable option
Aso ...A fine 2nd in the 2m4f Ryanair here in 2019; major stamina issues over 3m2f
Black Op ...Has fallen short a few times in strong races at 2m4f-3m2f since winning beginners' chase
Champ ...Stout stayer surely, who won the RSA over 3m last March; jumping can be the weak link
Frodon ...Excellent course form; fine King George win on Boxing Day; easy lead unlikely
Kemboy ...Jumped sketchily in this race last year when a well-held seventh; question mark back here
Lostintranslation .Huge effort when close 3rd in this race last year but has had worrying defeats this winter
Minella Indo... Two storming runs at the last two Festivals, including a 2nd in the RSA; ran flat latest
Native River.. Won this in 2018; up and down since but still has a big heart; drying ground not ideal
Royale Pagaille ..Improvement off the scale at 2m5f-3m1f on heavy/soft; big query about drying ground


Rules for this race,
you can only use the 10.00 Stake to bet.(any past profit is kept and added up at the end to get winner),
you can use this Stack to bet on 1 or 2 horses, Win or Each Way,

Thanks Wolfy for the comp. Sterling work again 👍

Im new to betting and have to ask about the EW bets on the bet calculator. How does IpswichtownNo1 guess correctly a horse on an EW - bet but then gets a negative profit?

He’d have to owe someone else a packet of crisps. Doesn’t make sense to me.

Hi Tang, if you have £5 each way on let's say a horse that is 5/1, so your stake is £10 if the horse is placed it's at 1/4 odds it's 5/4 so your return is £6-25 so you lose £3-75 on your bet. Hope that makes sense.🤔

I think on the packet of crisps bet the price of the horse meant that he got more than his total stake so he made a small profit of something like £1-88, confused I think I am

Sorry I looked at the return from the day before yet another senior moment I'm getting worried🤣.

Just had a look the horse he backed was 10/3 so to win £10 you need to have £3 on but for a place it's 10/12 so you lose money it needs to be 4/1 at 1/4 odds to break even, 4/1 a place is 4/4 so money back.

Thanks. Didn’t know that - good to know. It seems some of us were betting EW bets where there was hardly any return or you’d lose money.

Congratulations Tang well deserved, I must admit when it romped home today I thought I may have fluked the title as I hadn't seen your selection but over the piece you are a deserving winner. Well done.

You are too generous, WW Wolfie....., You could've gone with your forum name GnB and been alphabetically higher! High 5's all round. :D
Speaking of being "high"..... yep, that could be me with my weeks worth of picks.

Cheers for the comp, man and well done, Tang....., great job.

Yes Kerry was spot on, a 5.00 ew bet on a 10/3, you would have lost half because it didn't win,
your 5.00 EW bit with your stake returned would be, 9.17, so the loss was -0.83.
