Cheltenham Open Meeting (Day 3)

David Johnston was in seventh heaven Saturday as his splendid grey Great Endeavour landed the Paddy Power Gold Cup for the Pipe team. What a fantastic legacy of winners the Pipe/Johnson dream-team have accumulated between them in this race. In a sporting context their recent years of domination in this particular race is a truly remarkable achievement. I bet David Johnson is positively glowing this weekend. Hic!

When Saturday kicked off with Hinterland (R Walsh, 6-4 fav) winning the first race I thought this blog was picking up where it left off on Friday. Sadly, Friday’s booms fizzled out like a damp squib and the rest of the afternoon was a no show. Time to regroup 😉

Today’s fancies are at Cheltenham:

1.10 Chelt- Comb F/C 2-4-6-9 (12 bets).

1.45 Chelt- Gauvain (win).

2.20 Chelt- Moon Dice & Via Galilei (e/w).

2.55 Chelt- Pride In Battle & Mannlichen (e/w).

3.30 Chelt- Grandads Horse & Letter Of Credit (e/w).

4.00 Chelt- One Term & Catch Tammy (e/w).

Pride in battle

Spare a thought today for our brave troops past and present…
