Cheltenham selections Day 1

Ok for what it's worth here are my selections. Because I am on such a tight budget at the moment until the little one comes along I am limiting my losses to £50 for the next four days.

My aim is to make £7.50 per race, by dutching my bets on all my selections in each race. Obviously this isn't the quickest way to riches but just want good steady progress through the week (or at least see if it's possible!). Because I put these on last night I decided to only use bookies with guaranteed best odds, in case any of these drift like mad. I will miss getting involved in the jungle of the betting ring with decent cash, but it will have to wait until next year.

In recent years I've had pretty good success at Cheltenham. Captain Cee Bee won me £330 for a tenner at 33-1 antepost before in the Supreme Novice last year, while when Parlashan got up to win one of the big handicaps (forget which one) the year before it secured a nice exacta paying about £300. Anyway not such big ambitions this year, little and often all the way!
