Cheltenham Fancies

As I said on Twitter - Cheltenham is a bit like 4 days at the races without going! I treat it totally different to my normal punting where I can go days and days without a bet. I guess there is one huge difference with Cheltenham - everything is trying!! I have an £800 budget over the 4 days - hopefully get that back with a little more besides. Enjoy and don't bet if you ain't got it.
