I’ve just returned from my local GP surgery, a cold heartless individual at the best of times it’s fair to say but still the first port of call in the battle to stay fit.
Lack of sleep, wishing away time, repetitive speech, anxiety, repetitive speech sorry I’m doing it again. He had a long think, well for him it was about thirty seconds in reality and said it was something he had seen before particularly at this time of year. It only turns out I have a particularly bad case of Cheltenham Festival Fever!!!
I knew it deep down but to have it confirmed has taken a huge weight off me and when he prescribed the upcoming Cheltenham Special between Andy Bell and The Gambling Don, well the past few weeks of stress just disappeared quicker than Andy Bell himself when the two cruellest words in his vocabulary are heard “your round.”
BetFan moves en masse to Prestbury Park and every advisor worth his salt will be giving his subscribers the best bets from the meeting which is our Olympics and World Cup merged into one.
Every where you look for the next fortnight there will be previews, and people bending your ear with Cheltenham offers, the Bookmakers will attempt to be your best friend with offers you must take because they are never in such a generous mood normally.
However within this jungle of offers we feel at Betfan Towers we have the offer to beat all offers and one of the great gambling challenges of recent times as two of the very best pro gamblers go head to head and here’s the good bit, it’s WINNER TAKES ALL.
They also have a five thousand side bet on the table or under it more likely so one is going to walk away loaded and the other will crawl away gutted.
Quite simply, one bet a race to an agreed staking plan over four days and you get to have them both in your corner for one week only. Some of the big handicap fields you will be receiving two against the field to go to war with. These guys make a big part of their money at the Festivals and both appear in bullish mood.
I can assure you that we are dealing with a couple of egos here, I personally think that is what has made them agree to winner takes all. It should be messy and on Saturday and Sunday in their respective columns you can hear their reasoning for why they will come out on top.
Bell has more contacts than your local opticians and seems permanently on the phone to various yards whilst The Don can read a big race better than anyone as we have seen countless times.
I can’t tell you who I think will win as I keep changing my mind only that you would be mad to miss this, this is the biggest sidestory in punting terms to a wonderful week.
Get your name down and get in early, then you stop worrying and it’s over to them.
An Official announcement will be made later today so do keep your eyes peeled.
Back next Thursday.
