With the Willie Mullins, Ruby Walsh partnership dominating affairs on Day 3 of the Festival, the tipsters proofing to Racing-Index struggled to find value in the races, with only 4 returning a profit based upon 1 point level stakes at Betfair SP (6 based upon their advised odds).
Best performing tipster on the day was A Racing First, who was successful with Yorkhill winning the JLT Novices’ Chase @ 6/4 (BSP 2.76) and Road To Respect winning the Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase @ 14/1 (BSP 15.96). They also made a small each-way profit on Sub Lieutenant. Those winners mean they’re now showing a level stakes profit for all their bets at the festival.
Horse Exchange Betting Tips was another service to return a profit on Day 3, thanks to 2 winners from 2 bets, Yorkhill and Un De Sceaux winning the @ 7/4 (BSP 2.78).
Overall there wasn’t that much change at the top of the festival proofing table. None of the tipsters selected 40/1 winner Domesday Book to win the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup, so no big profits were to be had there.
SpeedRatings.com were unable to repeat their successes of Day 2, although anyone backing their selections each-way would have been happy with a couple of placed horses @ 16/1 & 20/1. They however remain top of our table.
2020 Racing remain 2nd with no winners from their 2 selections. Tipping Supermarket’s Valueman remains 3rd, with a profit on the day, thanks to a place only winning bet on Lil Rockerfeller (nearly a winner) and The Racing Edge remain 4th, having not proofed any selections on Day 3.
A notable mention goes to the Cheek Pieces service, who made a healthy profit on the day, based on their advised stakes, thanks to their selection Nichols Canyon winning the Stayers’ Hurdle @ 10/1 (BSP 13.0). It was their 1st day proofing to Racing-Index, so I’ll be keeping an eye on how they get on over the coming weeks.
