That's more like it. Day two of the Cheltenham Festival and a nice £27 profit. No lethargic hippos today (Moscow Flyer was my big winner last year, so I knew better than to push my luck by backing him at even money this time around - a dying swan impression was virtually guaranteed), but it has to be said, I DESERVED to make a £117 profit today. No, really.

Two weeks ago I put £6 on my baby, Rhinestone Cowboy, to win the Coral Cup at odds of 14-1. By the off today, he was all the way down to 5-1, proving me to be the shrewdest punter this country has ever seen. Well, the shrewdest punter willing to risk a whopping £6. That £84 profit was rightfully mine. He finished a gallant third out of 27 runners. Close but no cigar.

Still, let's all go out on a high by backing Best Mate to fall at the first tomorrow, and First Gold to romp home at 20-1. Hurrah!
