Skeltons secure one punter nearly £10k

A Betfair punter may have had a party on Wednesday evening after landing a Cheltenham day two double that won them nearly £10K from a £25 stake.

In a shrewd piece of antepost betting three weeks ago, they backed Langer Dan at 8/19.00 in the Coral Cup and Unexpected Party in the Grand Annual at 40/141.00 in an each-way double.

On day two both of the Dan Skelton-trained horses won their races and our punter scooped winnings of nearly £10K to make it an afternoon to remember at Cheltenham.

Langer Dan's victory was of special delight to Skelton as his eight-year-old became the first back-to-back winner in the Coral Cup's 31-year history.

Day three promises to be another exciting one at Cheltenham and Betting.Betfair tipsters and ambassadors have shared their insight to give you the best chance of becoming a big winner.

Rachael Blackmore is already a double Cheltenham 2024 winner and is targetting more success with Envoi Allen in the Ryanair as well as three other rides.
