Our resident Cheltenham Tipster, Little Sidekick, returned an overall profit of 40 points on day one of Cheltenham.
Perhaps his best tip of the day on Tuesday was Holywell at a huge 10-1 winner in the Baylis and Harding Handicap Chase. In the third race of the opening day, the outsider wore down Ma Filleule in the run-in to win. Ma Filleule, bravely ridden by Nico de Boinville, was at 33-1 but Holywell managed to get ahead thanks to the magnificent ride by R P McLernon and clinch it for the second year running.
He also picked the highly fancied Quevega at 16:00 as a sure thing – winner only – and the mare duly claimed a record sixth Mares’ Hurdle.
