Severn Sport Tipster League 2019 – Cheltenham Festival Day 1 Tips

It’s that time of year again. For most in Gloucestershire it is one of the most exciting weeks of the year, if not THE most exciting weeks. It is of course the Cheltenham Festival 2019 and welcome to the tipster league. 

If you missed it last year the tipster league sees 11 local competitors (individuals and teams) who pit their wits and tips against one another in a bid to be crowned King Tipster here at Severn Sport. Last year’s reigning champion Colin Gay of Slimbridge AFC will be putting his crown on the line in four days of tipping and fun.

On each of the four days the competitors are given three races. In these races they are to pick a winner, an each way shot and a reserve. They accumulate points depending on how well their horses run and are punished if they tip bad tips.

There are three boosts our competitors can use (once each throughout the week). They are, double points (2xPoints) which sees their horse receive double points. Double price (2xPrice) which sees their horse’s starting price double – increasing their chances of getting bonus points. There is Extra Place (XPlace) which sees the competitors pick two each way shots in one race.

For this year there is also the Ultimate Gamble. The competitors can pick a winner in any of the other races during the card at Cheltenham, but if the horse fails to finish in the frame then they will lose all points scored for that day. If the horse wins however, they will see an additional 5 points added to their daily score.

Today is day one. And today’s races are:
