As it's the start of Cheltenham Festival tomoz, I thought to have a little laugh and share your tips for horses you know of that are running.

My supervisor is into horse racing, bigly. He gave me a tip for a horse:

Friday 17th. Albert Bartlett Race.
Ami Desbois. I think it's 20/1 in most bookies. He said to do an 'each way' bet on it.

I'm fine with you lot betting on Cheltenham.

But any of you strawberry floaters coming to my town, jamming up the place and causing mayhem are going on the list!

So is Hexx a horse or a jockey?

I believe the correct vernacular is "train or tunnel".

Altior in the 2.10 tomorrow is 1/4, a dead cert. If you have a spare £4k you could stand to make a reasonable profit. :mrgreen:

If there is a horse running called "Train or tunnel" then we have to bet on it now.

They put a wire through the skin on your back and hover you over a Swiss mountain?

Stop walking in the bloody road would be my tip for Festival go-ers. The number of times I nearly flattened some over-dressed twonks on the way home from work last night was ridiculously, and it's the same every year!

If I were more organised I would vacate the town for race week, but that's never going to happen!

Was *this* close to sticking a few quid on Douvan in the 3.30 today. Luckily I thought better. :slol: Would have gotten strawberry float all back for it at those odds anyway.

Heard on the sports update on Radio2 drive time show tonight that 1 punter staked £500k on a favourite at 5/1on (no idea of horse's name) but the horse came well down the field.

Punter lost £500k :shock: Of course they must be loaded in the first place to stake that much but even so....he must be gutted. And all to win just 1/5th of his stake. What a muppet
Edit: link turns out same punter won £400k yesterday

You never beat the bookies

Tight-Mouthed Larry says Sad Ken is tipped to win the 3.30 at Chepstow despite odds of 100-1.

My advice would be to not try and read up on as many tips as me and my mate did last year and instead do what our other mate did: ask your gf to pick a horse at random, and walk away £200 richer.

Probably made sense back when horse racing was the only thing you could gamble on, in these days when you can bet on when Prince George will take his next gooseberry fool it seems fairly redundant.

£100 at 5/1 that the next gooseberry fool will be 2.30pm today.
