Brilliant race from Hazel Hill there, had so much in the tank. Was blocked by a stray horse for ages.
Better than the Invincibles. Better than Mourinho's Chelsea. Better than the fabled Man Utd treble team. I'm alright with that.

Hazel Hill (IRE) 7/2 f........................15
Shantou Flyer (IRE) 7/1....................10
Top Wood (FR)33/1.........................7+10 = 17


Maybe a two horse race now.  They have different horses in the last 2 races so who knows.

***CONGRATULATIONS TO RED_IRISHMAN*** :champ

Similar to his fellow Irish trainers at Cheltenham he also dominated the field and wins the 12th RAWK Cheltenham Tipster competition.  Very well played mate.

After a shaky first day R_I went on to deliver 109 points on Day 2 and never looked back.  Finishing the festival today with a high score of 62 he frankly cruised to his first title.

Robbie pushed our winner to the last day but couldn't find the winners he needed to win back to back titles but still a great effort from RR.

Youngest Son of Skittle wins the Tipster fail trophy for the second time but I don't think he will want to dwell on that.

Here are today's scores and final standings.  Trophy presentation will occur sometime over the weekend and thanks to everyone who took part.

I actually forgot to check this yesterday lads. I can't believe I've won it, i don't look at racing at all only for Cheltenham! Fair bit of luck involved believe me because I actually pick them myself and generally I'm crap at it. I picked the same horses for a work competition and won 300 out of it so I'm very happy with both!

Fair play for organising it Pete and the rest of the lads, gentlemen. There's a bit of work involved in it. I will enjoy the trophy until next year! Cheers.

On a side note there been some talk about extending the meeting to 5 days -- I really hope that doesn't happpen. In fact I'd be strongly in favour of going back to three.
