Hi guys, I’ve admittedly been a little out of my comfort zone choosing selections this far in advance of the Festival as I normally tip day to day and have found it much more difficult than anticipated. This is because many horses haven’t even had the race they’re running in firmed up yet, no one knows what the Going will be, jockey bookings haven’t been finalised, we can’t really see yet where the big money is going, Non Runner No Bet (NRNB) still isn’t in place with many bookmakers, and I’ve generally had much less information available than I’m use to. So, taking all those factors in to account, please don’t go overboard with you stakes and treat this first stab at an E/W Lucky 15 more as a small stakes fun bet. There will be plenty of much more confident selections from me over the coming weeks as the picture becomes clearer on the run up to the start of the Cheltenham Festival on March 16th.

All prices quoted are from BET365 who don’t have NRNB in place yet but were offering the industry best prices on all 4 horses. Good luck!

P.S. Just a reminder that while I suggest bookies to bet with because they have the best price available or are offering to pay extra places in a race these are purely profit optimising common sense choices for your benefit and I receive absolutely nothing from them. I am not affiliated with any bookmakers!
