in town Mikey

Honest Mike Gibbs Bookmakers

Recommended Posts

Anybody up for a bit of fun? Posh birds? Fat Al's? Pimms at £25 a jug?

Rules of comp.

Everyone starts off with a £100 pot.

Bets to be placed by 2pm each day.

All standard bets taken, ie yankees, Lucky 15/31/63, forecasts, tricasts, singles, doubles..... (No spread bets sorry) Only official result paid. No FPP's

Bonuses paid, for all correct. 10% Lucky 15, 25% for an all correct Lucky 31, 100% bonus for an all correct lucky 63.

Dead heat rules apply.

In true, its a knockout style, you can play your joker on your nap (best bet of the meeting). If nap bet is a winner, double the odds are paid, eg a 10/1 winner returns 20/1 etc.

Winner is the person with the most money in the pot at the end of the festival.

Winner announced Monday morning.

I will be leaving each day at 1.30 to put my feet up in front of the excellent Channel 4 coverage. So if you get your bets up before then I can take them home with me and settle them there. All results will be posted, hopefully by 9am following morning.

Prize is the respect of everybody on soul source. (prize value 0.0000000001 euro)

Good luck sports fans.

Mind if I opt out of this Mikey? As a Cheltonian, I follow the local convention -if you ain't actively engaged in making money out of the mass of punters that descend on Cheltenham this week, you stay well clear of town!

It must be a nighmare for the locals Hippo.

I will be in Cheltenham on Thursday night, meeting a few Sheffield United fans, for a guiness or two, before they loose their money on the Friday.

The experts (Dave) are coming in now Mikey.

I expect Shane to make an appearance, but he's probably busy talking to Pipe, Timmy Murphy and Derek Thompson at the minute.

Seriously, he will know them, judging by our 'what celebs have you met' competition at PF on Friday.

I got one name in and then he stubbed me out completely AND had it corroberated

by another Soul Sourcer. unsure.gif :angry:

In fact, when I met Troy Keyes there, he asked me if I knew Shane !! rolleyes.gif

But I'll let him tell you who it was. :D

I've got it a 5 pointer Steve but it's shorter than I expected....I've left an order for evens :thumbsup:

Yes, that Valley Ride was overpriced, really. Did you get those two on Friday?

I happen to know that O'Gradys think Ned Kelly is some sort of machine......but it is Cheltenham!!!!!

Will have a small one on Irish Hussar, Henderson always has a good ratio here. Cheers Steve

Steve has £121.25 :thumbsup:

The poor old ex bookie has £60 :angry:

I'm going to play my joker and have £30 on Well Chief. Out of the 3 principals, its the only one that has its price.

We have TV at work :yes:

Terrestrial and Sky. :D

Month end figures wanted, otherwise it would be Guiness in a pub somewhere from 1.30pm, warming up for the journey down tomorrow afternoon.

Do you really fancy Well Chief Mikey ?

I really do.

At the price.

I think Moscow is the best of the three, but his jumping can come into question.

Azertyuiop, has been beaten (just) by Well Chief.

Well Chief saves his best races for Prestbury. The win in the Victor Chandler was superb. The hill suits his style.

7/4 the first two or 3/1 WC. I think thats the price.

Going by the basic principle of 1 point for each close rival, and 1 point for the field, that makes WC @ 3/1 a bet, and the other two have the same criteria, so 7/4 each is a lay I think.

We shall see.

I'm off in a minute. Got held up in traffic yesterday and only just saw the start of the first race.

How about Moscow as a win back and a place lay? It has never been beaten- either wins or tips up. I've had half a dozen free bets on him in the past....but its gonna go wrong one day :):D

NICE TOUCH YESTERDAY STEVE with Irish Hussar :thumbsup: Saved my bacon!

Right,

3.15 Oneway £1win, £2place (in case one of the three doesn't get round)

4.40 Indalo £10 EW

HINT!!!!

I,ve just opened an account with Billy Hills, placed a pony bet, laid 15 back on betfair and they (Hills) have kindly given me £40 to bet in another race, half of which I have laid again.

Aren't they nice people? :):lol:

BTW Mikey, you could well be right about WC! By the look of that Contraband yesterday, Pipes horses are running, er, shall we say, better than the form suggests!! :D

This is one of the few times a year I can actually say I am home sick.

As a Bishops Cleevonian ( about a mile from the course ) we used to have a good week at the races ( best year was when Garrison Savannah won the Gold Cup ) as he was part owned by one of the guys in our football club - Bishops Cleeve - pride of the Hellenic league.

To cap it all I was listening to Five Live on t'internet Monday and they were broadcasting from the Kings Head in Prestbury.

Steve £156.25

Dave £101

Bunter £30 :thumbsup:

Newer. I'm meeting a couple of mates in Cheltenham tonight, in the pub opposite the train station.

Any suggestions on good boozer's in the centre of town during the festival?

I will add, its never great to loose money, but yesterdays Champion, proved just what a Champ, Moscow Flyer is.

After the initial disappointment, I enjoyed all the post match analysis.

The only people who wouldnt have enjoyed it would have been the supporters of Azertyuiop (surely the only horse easier to type the name than write it), who was out of it way too early. At least I had a run for my money.

If i was being hyper critical... I realise Well Chief takes time to get going, but why give away 8-10 lengths before the tape goes up? Why not get him level at the very start of the race, and let him go around in his own time, from then on. He was beaten 2 1/2 lengths, but began so far behind Moscow.

Having said that I believe if he had got closer, Moscow would have pulled out more. When WC challenged coming into the straight Moscow just went away again.

fantastic race, and I can be happy that I will win my money back when WC wins it for the next three years :thumbsup:

Good summary Mikey.

Todays wagers are as follows:

£10 EW Quazar 2.00

£20 Win Rathgar Beau 2.35

£5 EW Double on the pair.

I'll post Fridays selections shortly as I leave for Cheltenham and a St Patricks Day piss up early this afternoon. No doubt passing hordes of drunken english students wearing C*lt*c shirts in an attempt to be Irish for the day. The w*nkers.

Have a good one tonight with the Blades Mikey.

in the bin tray :yes:

Need to get my thinking head on now :(

Going on the ladbrokes rules, as I used to work for them I am only paying out on the first 4. I believe some are paying ou5th, but dont know what place odds they are using so:

Steve has £106.25

Dave £77.90 (Is it just a place at 16/1 1/4 odds)

Bookie £30 (I forgot to post. )

Dave I talked myself out of Thisthat....I thought he was a bandit...Wrong AGAIN!!!
