With so few favourites winning at the Cheltenham Festival so far, the opening two days has not been a week for the normal punter.

Matched bettors, on the other hand, have enjoyed a decent second day at Cheltenham 2017. Some are reporting that offers seem harder to dig out than last year.

But others were happy with their earnings and we calculated there should have been at least £270 of guaranteed profit - and this was before the refunds and extra place bonuses.

Here's a Cheltenham Day 2 review from some of our members

Littlestar1981: £119.98 profit and £41 free bets ready and waiting, not counting the ones due to be credited tomorrow. Happy!

Celt123: £85 profit today, very quiet day, only managed to get on boosts and a couple of other things, few FB's coming in tomorrow, puts me at £350 for cheltenham so far, not too shabby.

Archer1987: Just over £200 for me with £85 free bets to start the day tomorrow. Happy with that!

Daugan: 50 yesterday and 125 today, absolutely made up!

adamfotza: Made £240 today so £550 up over the two days. Pretty happy with that and hoping for similar luck over the final two days!

Irfy278: My eyes are killing but it's been worth it. I set myself a target of 1k for the 4 days. Should smash through it tomorrow! :-)

Davie92: Made about £120 today. Mainly using free bets and looking for refunds. Could've been better but i can't grumble. Don't really have the bank for many price boosts and I'm yet to get to grips with extra place offers.

Palacetom1: About 270 including QLs and a hefty £50 loss on the extra places - didn't hit in the end. Pretty pleased though - takes me over £500 after 2 days so on track for £1k by the end of the week.
