Might Bite salvages difficult day for our experts at Cheltenham

It wasn’t just the bookies that took a battering on day two at the Cheltenham Festival. There were similar struggles for our experts in the Tipster Challenge, sponsored by Betting Gods.

Harry Lang, Marketing Director at Pinnacle, could only match the 3.50-point return for both Timeform and bettingexpert’s Stephen Harris. All three landed a single winner on Might Bite (7/2), which came as early as the second race.

The rest of the day was a struggle, with only Timeform recording another top three on 9/4F Cantlow. Timeform and bettingexpert held their positions in 15th and 6th, while Lang entered in 14th place.

Race Winners at Cheltenham:

  1. Willoughby Court 14/1
  2. Might Bite 7/2
  3. Supasundae 16/1
  4. Special Tiara 11/1
  5. Cause of Causes 4/1
