Here we go again at arguably the best week of the year for horse racing. OK, so there will be no mingling in the paddocks, dressing up or hugging your friends when you get that treble – heck there won’t even be a quiet pint in the pub while you watch your nag fall at the first, but still! The race is on!
For entertainment purposes only, here’s what I have picked for Cheltenham 2021:-
Appreciate It at 13:20. Big favourite. I picked mainly because I always like to start with a good chance of a win!
Monkfish in the 13:55. OK I know everyone will be putting money on Monkfish, I will too. But I am going to put a side bet on Latest Exhibition. Why? Purely because he has come 2nd to Monkfish when out last and I think these pair will have a good race!
Paisley Park in the 15:05. What is not to like about this horse? I like that whenever I’ve put money on him I’ve won! This is definitely his race! I also love purple and am inspired by his owner.
Champ in the Gold Cup @ 15:05. The best race of the big meeting, so much to choose from. All the greats from this season will be there. I have chosen Champ as the one for me. The favourite in this race is Al Boum Photo but I like the name Champ and I’m sticking with it. Same age, same weight, whose going to get it is on the day!?!
