Day 1 : £33,924,777 (2017 £34,322.245) Down 1.1%

Obviously depends on the race price profiles but to misquote Mark Twain, I think rumours of betfairs demise may have been greatly exagerated.
Hard to make a comparison but I would say it's about the same. Three odds-on favourites and a 7/4F this year, compared to one odd-on fav Altior (1/4), 6/4 & 2/1F.

I'll be happy if the markets continue to behave like this all week, only one I found difficult to read was the last (once livelovelast firmed up).

Hi All,

I can't beleive I am the only person that hates cheltenham week, I feel it is reserved for the very very very big traders only.

Great racing of course and the spectacle is eyecatching. But trading.....is at best questionable, to get matched you have to have started trading last week or possibly last year! you know what I mean....

That's exactly how I felt last year. This year I had a totally different approach.

Fewer trades concentrate on just making one trade, look at an earlier post of mine in this topic.

That's exactly how I felt a few years ago when I started trading. I used to back or lay the entire field in the antepost markets, get my green books and then just enjoy the racing. Cheltenham markets require a different approach when trading.
