Cheltenham Results 2014

14 Mar

The final day started badly when long time Gold Cup hope, First Lieutenant was pulled out of the race. The rest of the day didnt get much better with some shock wins that I couldnt come close to picking. Ironically, Gigginstown Stud (who own First Lieutenant) has a field day with their other runners having 4 winners. Another reason not to fly Ryanair in the future!

It’s back to the day job for me now and the blog will be quiet until Aintree in the first week of April (before then any messages will be on Twitter)

Looking ahead to next year I see no reason why O Faolains Boy can’t be competitive in the Gold Cup. Ballyalton is a less obvious name that I’ll be following with novice chases in mind. More of That could prove to be one of the greats – he beat Annie Power on merit and stamina didnt come into her loss

It’s been a successful week for the blog – ending with a 39.87 pt profit to a level stake.

Hoping that some winners have come your way and thanks for reading throughout the week
