Now that the dust has settled on the Cheltenham Festival 2021, we can reflect on the performance of the tipsters last week. The chart below shows the performance (profit/loss) of the traditional newspapers and recognised online tipping sources who made regular predictions.
Non-runner predictions were excluded and a hypothetical stake of €10 (€5 each-way) was placed on the starting price of each horse predicted to win.
If a punter was to follow the tips from the Scottish newspaper The Daily Record they would have returned a profit of €305.44 over the four days. This profit was driven by their excellent performance on Wednesday and Thursday (in particular, tipping Put the Kettle On at 17/2, Sky Pirate at 14/1 and Flooring Porter at 12/1). The Sun finished second - with profits heavily reliant on tipping Belfast Banter at 33/1.
Five of the tipsters made profits on both win and each-way bets. From the tips offered on horseracing.net only Spotlight made both win (€181.47) and each-way profits (€123.86).
