Last year in the Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide Kevin Blake took a look at the main favourites and said if he felt they were festival bankers or they would be beaten (Bust).
All 5 of he’s Bust selections got beaten in the respective races (Melon 2nd @ 3/1, Carter McKay 15th @ 11/2, Douvan 7th @ 2/9, Death Duty Fell @ 13/8 and On The Fringe – 4th @ 11/8).
There was 1 winner from his 3 Bankers (Yorkhill – 1st @ 6/4), plus he also had a winner from his 4 lively outsiders (Presenting Percy – 1st @ 11/1).
