Cheltenham Festival Racecard 12/03/13

For those of you lucky enough to be taking part in the Place a Bet Online sponsored Cheltenham Festival Competition, here’s a run of events for 12/03/13 including form and current odds available.

Our pick for today is a £10 E/W bet on His Excellency, in the 2:05 Racing Post Arkle Challenge Trophy Chase with Bet365.

Competition Preview

In 2012, The Cheltenham Festival produced moments that will live in the memory for years.  Unfortunately we witnessed Kauto Star’s final run of an illustrious career with two Gold Cup wins, five King George V victories, two Tingle Creeks amongst others. But his final run was one to forget, with the 12 year old legend pulling up with over a lap to go.  It was typical of the Passionate Cheltenham Crowd that Kauto received a standing ovation as he was walked back by jockey Ruby Walsh.  In that race the ill-fated Synchronised produced a surging late run to beat the Giant Bolster.  Big Bucks once again romped home in the World Hurdle for his fourth consecutive title.  This year’s ante post Gold Cup favourite Bob’s Worth dominated First Lieutenant in the RSA Chase, whilst Nicky Henderson had a record 7 wins at the Festival.  The highest priced winner was Une Artiste who won the Fred Winter Juvenile Hurdle at 40/1.

A massive thank you to’ for sponsoring this years’ competition, they have very kindly provided £20 cash prize plus five £10 free bets courtesy of Bet365 and I encourage you all to visit the Place a Bet Online website for all the best and up to date betting offers you will find on the internet.  The Competition results and info will also be published on the website on the following link

This year I have set the entry form on the spreadsheet slightly different to last year.  Each race has its’ own individual tab and each spreadsheet comes with an entry form for your benefit.  On the entry form tab you can click on the blank cell next to the race name and a drop down box will appear to the side, where you can find your selections.  Your banker however must be keyed in manually.

Good luck to everyone and thank you once again for participating.

Dave Moore, Competition Organiser
