The Pre Cheltenham Comp Winner

Updated: Mar 19, 2022

As we get ever closer to the Festival we now have our Cheltenham competition open for registration and this years looks like it will be our biggest ever. This means we will have a bigger prize pot to play for and at £10 to enter you can signup today here and find payment details on our Cheltenham pages

You can also follow it all on our Social Media channels and get involved in all the latest chat and banter for festival week

We have had our warm up competition underway and after 7 gruelling weeks we have a winner, and top of the table with over 400 points is Tony Livesey. Week 7 was another really tough week with very few winners but a winning Nb on the day was enough to fire Tony to the top and just pip our unlucky 2nd placed player Matt Parkinson. It was heartbreak again for Matt who was also 2nd in our 2021 £100 challenge. An honourable mention as well to Natalie who was our early front runner and completes the top 3, a feat in more impressive with the return to wins ratio, those bigger priced wins proved key but fell short at the end

Thanks to everyone that took part over the weeks and now on to Cheltenham, hopefully we'll see you all again for the main event and can Tony take this form in to the festival or will Matt finally get home in front this time? Or will we have a dark horse come and sweep away everyone? You'll be able to follow it all along with all our tips and previews for the week here on The Cheeky Punts

The Final Results

Week 6 Results

With just 1 week to go, week 6 was a tough one for all players with only 2 players finding a winner. Stephen was the big winner with a 9/2 winning NAP which moves him in to contention in 4th spot just behind the early front runner Natalie. Tony was the only other winner on the day and that was good enough to move him in to 2nd behind the current leader Matt.

Could it be heartbreak again for Matt who also finished runner up in our Champion Tipster competition at the end of 2021 or can he go one better this time and secure the win?

It really is all to play for now as we go in to the final week on the 12th March so don't forget to those entries in to be in with your chance of taking the title, the free £25 bet for Cheltenham AND a free place in our Cheltenham competition

Submissions must be submitted by 12pm on the Saturday morning and must be submitted on the following link:

Week 5 Results

We have a new leader as we come up to the final few weeks as Matt landed a double for the day and scored a whopping 196 points. The early leader Natalie is still up there in contention and sits in 2nd and Tony was the big riser of the week with a winning NAP at 13/2.

With 2 weeks to play we may see some bigger punts going on the last couple of weeks, a 16/1+ winning NAP now would see someone potentially go from last to first! The final dash here could get interesting, so don't forget to get those entries in next week

Week 4 Results

Week 4 saw a couple of doubles up and the bonus points certainly helped our own Chris Bridgett who was the big mover, jumping from joint bottom up to 5th. Andrew also had a couple of winners and moves in to second spot above Matt who drew a blank.

The early front runner Natalie continues to lead the way and had a winning NAP to extend that lead over the field whilst newcomer James had the biggest winner of the day with a 9/2 winning NB, enough to just squeeze in to the top 10, a feat all the more impressive being his first week of entering

With 3 weeks left to go its still all to play for and wide open for a late run from anyone in the field. One big priced winner could change the whole shape of the table!

We'll be back again for week 5 to see who can take the crown and that free £25 bet of the Cheltenham festival

Week 3 Results

It was a difficult day for our players this week with the only winners coming in the shape of the well fancied Bravemansgame and Edwardstone. Matt had one of those to close the gap a touch on the early leader Natalie who stays top despite drawing a blank. With no one landing any significant blows the table remains relatively unchanged as we reach the half way point next week.

Thanks again to all those who are taking part and entry will reopen on Friday for week 4

Week 2 Results

It was another competitive day and with the Dublin Race Festival as well a number of players went for selections on the Emerald Isle but it was Natalie who struck again with the highest priced winner of the day for the 2nd week running, and with Green Book a winning NAP it was enough to fire her to the top of the table.

Matt landed a double on the day picking up the 50 bonus points with L'Homme Presse and Captain Cattistock both obliging which moved him up to second and a nice 9/2 winning NAP for Martyn sees him take 3rd. Stephen missed this week so has slipped from top to 4th and our own Tony Livesey makes up the top 5 with a 10/3 winning NAP.

This week has shown once again that its winning at a price that counts and our own #Oddsknows Saturday NAP would actually be in 6th spot from just 1 pick each week.

It can all still change and a bigger priced winner can shoot a player from bottom to top in an instant so we'll be back next Saturday with round 3. Can anyone catch the early pacesetter?

Week 1 Results

We kicked off with a difficult week as points proved hard to come by with a few short priced favourites getting beat. Stephen did however manage to find not 1 but 2 winners securing 50 bonus points to storm to the top of the table as our early leader. Natalie goes in to 2nd with the biggest priced winner of the day, Imperial Alcazar winning at 9/1.

Three players landed a NAP with Chantry House although there may have been some fingers over the eyes with his performance! Frank was the final one to score, also with Chantry House but as the Nb.

It was a good, competitive first week and with 6 weeks still to play it is wide open. A big priced winner can prove all the difference but who will dare go for the biggie?

It is FREE to enter and we will put up a small prize of a free £25 bet for day 1 of the festival itself for the overall winner as well as you having the glory of being named Champion.

Yet more great value from your number one preview site plus serious bragging rights for the winner
