Missed this post before - assume the bet lost? The bet always loses when you really, really need it to win :(

Boo :( I had that happen to me once before when I was at home, someone knocked on the door. Turned out to be a very chatty neighbour who I could NOT shut up and ended up missing the start, really annoying!

Having one of those why didnt I do this sooner moments. I know cos I have a built in suspicion of "I made 1000 doing this" adverts came here to get roamler code, found something completley new :)

my philosophy today is use this week as learning time and ignore small sums I make (due to liquidity) but watch and learn how you all do :)
Ditto-you and me both!

I decided to do this yesterday and made £81 today.
One mistake made, I layed a race for tomorrow instead of today, so placed another back bet else where when I noticed what I had done. Only realised once my free bet didn't win and my exchange didn't update.

Phew! You have to be on your toes, don't you?

It was made a bit easier by the fact that I was able to work from home today. I'll have to go in to the office tomorrow, so will have to sort most of the free bets I've earned either tonight or in the morning.

As well as the Cheltenham offers, I have a first go at the Bet 365 ITV racing offer for horses at 5.0 and above, and wouldn't just know it, it won at 5.5, so I've got a £50 free bet to place on tomorrow's 1.30 race as well.

Woohoo nice one!

I do that and betfairs above 4.0 version every Saturday and each month I would say I pull in a good few hundred from them :)

On the bright side, I honestly cannot think of any other MatchBetting situation that's as intense as the 4 days of Cheltenham, so if you can survive this, you can survive anything!

Tomorrow and Thursday should be a bit quieter, Friday is usually busy with offers so fingers crossed.

Some great results there. I have made £22.02 and have a couple of free bets on for tomorrow and bets to get more free bets. As I said I hoped to make £50 over the 4 days, I think I will easily do that.

I made about £155 today which I'm happy enough with, especially as I only had about £600 in the Exchange to mess about with. Had some decent slot offer luck on top of that too.

Next to nothing stashed for tomorrow though so aside from the 365 offer I'll be chasing refunds, but probably nothing crazy as I'm so knackered from today - I'm not used to having to think so much :p

Hopefully there will be some more decent Price Boosts knocking around too as was a bit disappointed with the lack of those today.

Out of little acorns.........Last year my first day winnings were £50 (although I did have £100 of free bets to use the next day) and ended up £650 better off at the end of the week.

Think I’m £200 up overall today. But as @Pbrail said, not a lot on tomo. 365 I’ve yet to do, skybet, and will try some BFSB refunds. Oh and a refund to come from today’s coral which I haven’t included...
Two flippin meetings tomorrow so I’m not going to be as engaged (or as manic) as I was today!!!;)

Have to say, extremely underwhelmed this year. I'll be lucky to have made a profit at all after day 1, didn't hit a single refund, and every single risk free bet lost (i don't lay these, and one i've just found out i won't be getting the refund for).

I can't sit at home all day trying to hit the 4/1 and extra places so it's left me with not a lot of options.

Did anyone else do the betway first and last race? Just wondered if you had received your free bets yet I'm still waiting.
