Placepot pointers – Cheltenham – Saturday 14th November 2015

Placepot dividends for the second day of the Cheltenham 'Open' meeting for the last five years: 

 

2014: £25.70 (6 favourites - 2 winners - 3 placed - 1 unplaced)

2013: £149.40 (8 favourites - 1 winner - 3 placed - 4 unplaced)

2010: £118.90 (7 favourites - 2 winners - 3 placed - 2 unplaced)

 

The following results dictated the large Placepot dividend back in 2011: An 11 runner handicap chase (second event on the card) witnessed the front four horses in the market all finishing out of the frame.  In the feature event (Paddy Power Gold Cup), only one of the first seven horses in the market secured a Placepot position at odds of 8/1.  The finale saw a 5/4 market leader miss out on a Placepot position alongside the 7/2 second favourite.  In all, ten horses priced between 10/1 & 33/1 claimed Placepot positions via 20 available places.
