3 value horses to follow for the weekend

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:


2.05 Haydock – LISNAGAR OSCAR

Odds: 15/2


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.


2.40 Haydock – ACHILLE

Odds: 10/1


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.


3.00 Ascot – KEPAGGE

Odds: 14/1


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.
