So before I start a little disclaimer: I am not encouraging betting, I am not a professional and these are just my own opinions from what I have seen and read about the horses, the races and the trainers so I am not responsible for anything that may happen if you choose to copy my tips. If you choose to gamble over the festival period, please only bet money you can afford to lose, do not gamble more than you can afford to, please remember that betting is supposed to be fun. Thank you.
So now the serious part is out of the way, let’s get into my tips for the festival! Disclaimer: The prices I have put are correct at the time of writing this post via the Ladbrokes iPhone app, all horses are currently down to run, however this may change as the festival gets closer.
