Fortune for once deserted VBET traders last weekend after all three of their big-priced selections finished second.
Our experienced team of wise judges gets back on the horse at Haydock and Ascot this weekend to bring you three essential value racing tips:
Things have not gone his way since winning last season’s Stayers’ Hurdle at Cheltenham – but it would be folly to write him off just yet.
Trainer Rebecca Curtis reports the eight-year-old in top trim for this assignment at a track where he won so well as a novice.
He needs to step up considerably on recent performances, but he obviously has the class and could well be rejuvenated by wind surgery.
Consistently game and durable chaser that has only once finished outside the first two in eight of his last starts over fences. Ran a screamer in the Classic Chase last time and, by contrast to others, is a guaranteed stayer.
This is trickier off a career-high mark but it’s little wonder that he’s been steadily backed in the build-up to this race.
Seemed not to stay in desperate conditions at Warwick last time, having previously caught the eye at Cheltenham in November.
A return to this shorter trip – a distance at which he won so smartly as a novice at Doncaster – should work the oracle.
This is a big ask, but he’s arguably one of the most unexposed horses in the field and looks fairly handicapped on a revised mark of 133. Looks a massive price if he’s on a going day.
