Anyway, I am not a jack of all trades and I am all about promoting those who know their racing and niche. 

So I have a couple of recommendations for blogs that will see you well this Cheltenham Festival 2020.

Wayward Lad - Ian has run this well-informed blog since 2010 and must have over 1000 posts. He has been very successful over the years and loves Cheltenham. I like the fact he uses form and statistics which dictate what to expects. Someone I would recommend to all punters.

PG's Tips - Graham blog dates back to 2006 and he has a great style of giving top-class information with wit and wisdom. He is an astute man who not only enjoys his racing but puts in the work to keep ahead of the game.

Take note of these guys because they put in unending hours and if you want an expert option you won't go wrong with Wayward Lad and PG's Tips. 

Good luck.
