Top tips – Cheltenham Wednesday

Right. cheltenham is capturing the hearts and pockets of punters nationwide this week but there aren’t too many nice bets today.

Yesterday was much better. I backed Celestial Halo, L’Ami and Quevega as part of a Lucky 15 each-way. However, I’ll only be collecting a small amount.

Today, I won’t be having a bet…..but if i was, this is what I would do.

I’d do a Lucky 15 combining tonight’s football and today’s racing at Cheltenham.

Firstly, Mikael D’Hagenuet. Needs soft ground and has four times in Ireland for Willie Mullins on that type of ground. He could have done with more rain at Cheltenham but this is a horse I like a lot and he could be winning the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle at around 4/1 today.

Secondly, Master Minded. An absolute machine who will win easy bar a disaster. However, at odds of around 1/3 he is best included in a Lucky 15.

Now, on to the football.

After Liverpool’s brilliant win in the Champion’s League last night, and Chelsea’s win, English football is on a high. This will continue tonight. I can’t see either Arsenal or Manchester United not getting through. However, because I’m a Liverpool fan, I cannot back Man Utd. Therefore, I’m concentrating on Arsenal’s match with Roma.

Arsenal hold a 1-0 lead from the first leg, and I don’t see them crumbling tonight. Roma have a fair home record this season but I don’t see them breaking through what will be a very organised Arsenal team. I’m plumping for a draw in that one at odds of around 9/4.

Now, back to the Premier League. Fulham play Blackburn at Craven Cottage. Fulham’s form has dipped lately but their home record is fairly solid. Blackburn on the other hand, have been very hit and miss all season and currently lie in the relegation zone. Furthermore, their away form is terrible having only won three out of 13 games on their travels this season. I’m fancying Fulham at odds of slightly over 5/4.

 

A Lucky 15 at the odds quoted costs €15 and will return a lovely €192.38 if they all win. 

Oh sit down!
