Bit near to racing so sure you are busy but if you get chance later Peter could you expand on the above from yesterday re. the flasher would be interested to hear your views.
I usually find with Cheltenham that as the week goes on I get better results mainly I feel because I get used to the markets more. These kind of markets are not around very often so I get little practice at them but I trade thousands of 'rubbish' markets over the year.
The opportunity for putting more through the markets is there with Cheltenham but I have to say I prefer the 'rubbish' we get most days over Cheltenham and always have done. I don't get worried about not making a mint at Cheltenham because I see it as more as a bonus, to me the important thing is getting the every day markets correct. If you can crack those but not Cheltenham you can still have an outstanding year, but if you crack Cheltenham but not the everyday 'rubbish' you are highly unlikely to have much of a year.
Crack both of them and you are obviously on for a good year.
For me it is more about the racing this week and enjoying it - make a few quid and it is all the better
If I get chance I am going to have a look back at previous year threads on Cheltenham and see what we all had to say about it back then. I think that could be quite interesting.

Stewart I agree, I got some excellent results at Sedgefield yesterday, not so much at Southwell. One thing I remember from past years is that you can get a spill over from Cheltenham to these other courses as people are 'in the mood' for it and have often got bigger banks and get a little carried away still thinking they are trading a Cheltenham market.
Peter - do you have any stats on the other meetings to see if there was any extra money etc at them?
