Anyone interested in the racing this week? any tips you want to share?
Ive been looking at the papers online this morning and a lot of them are talking about Hurricane Fly in the 3:20 and they backed him on Today fm this morning too. More so the Irish papers than the English ones tho might put a few euro on him.
I love a few bets for the festivals. Hopefully will make the day more interesting!
Time For A Change
I'm not a gambling person all, even though my uncle is a very well known horse trainer and I barely even do the Lotto. The rare time I do a bet, the most I'd put on would be a fiver but I play safe, and always put them as "each way" or whatever the term is (see, haven't a clue!)
When I do pick horses, even if I'm not betting, I don't go for who the trainer is, the state of the ground, previous wins - I've a much better method. FIL is a gambler, but only tiny bets, and he hates when I use my method - and win!!!!
Hi Wibbly Wobbly Wonder, Im no pro either and often go with names I like, I rarely back a favourite or even check what the ground is like. I have a few silly rules like I dont back grey horses and mainly only back Irish horses. I only put on a few bets for the big festivals like Cheltenham, Grand Nationals and Galway. So best of luck with your picks! Id love to win a few quid this week
I also love a little bet at Cheltenham, haven't a clue about horses but might be lucky this week. Good luck to all having a little bet
I Do I Do
I love having a little flutter on Cheltenham, OH loves his racing, he's friends with lotsa jockeys/trainers, and he's heading over to Cheltenham tomorrow, so if I get any sure things from him, I'll let ye know. I've one tip for Friday which is Unaccompanied, now don't go putting the house on it, and don't kill me if it turns out to be a complete donkey! I would say, keep an eye on the horses that Ruby Walsh is on (he's on Hurricane Fly), although he's only back from injury, he has the best overall record as a jockey at Cheltenham, so he's always worth a couple of bob. Oh and one tip my brother ALWAYS gives me, is that if Nina Carberry is in the 2nd last or last race, she'll always come somewhere...
Again please don't kill me if none of the above happen, I have yet to make a fortune from my gambling!

I got this from a guy in work whose big into his horse racing. Dont come after me though if you loose any money please!!
I read Ruby has a great record over there. Nina never wins when I back her, I think I must curse her and my family hate hearing that Ive put money on her when they have too. So for the good of everyone else I dont back her anymore.
Im not supersitious at all but when it comes to racing I have a few funny quirks and rules!
Not long till the off now.
Oooohh thanks Urban Fairy. Ive backed Cue Card already so fingers crossed!
Oh Charlei Im sure your OH will get a few tips during the week, would love to hear them. I know a tip is never a sure thing. We wont come looking for you I promise
