My Drogo the 5/4 FAV for Bet365 Premier Novices’ Hurdle

We have MY DROGO at the head of the market for this contest as he looks to continue building on a positive start to his career.

My Drogo is the 5/4 favourite in horse racing betting* (betting odds recorded at 04:04 GMT on March 5th 2021 at Bet365).

He was last seen at Ascot 78 days ago in a Grade 2 fixture in which he collected the win by almost three lengths.

My Drogo is really looking like a smart prospect and there is plenty more to come from him.

He got that Ascot win incidentally from a 9/1 mark in the Supreme Trial Novices’ Hurdle. The first of his wins this season was at Newbury.

My Drogo is conceding weight to the rest of the field but there looks plenty more to come from him as he makes the step up in the trip as well.



Bareback Jack the biggest threat to the favourite?

It has been a perfect four wins from four for BAREBACK JACK and the form that he has shown puts him in the frame.

Bareback Jack is a 9/2 contender for Saturday’s fixture* (betting odds recorded at 04:04 GMT on March 5th 2021 at Bet365).

He completed his third win of the season a month ago when he produced a strong run at Musselburgh over 2m.

That was a win secured by two and a quarter lengths.

Bareback Jack has just gone from strength to strength this season and looks as if he poses a huge threat to this field.

It’s been nothing but positives over the timbers so far from him.

Can Any News build on strong Cheltenham effort?

ANY NEWS just missed out on a hat-trick on his last run, which was at Cheltenham 85 days ago.

But it’s been a really positive start from him under rules regardless.

He opened with a win at Bangor on his hurdles debut to build on a national hunt flat success back in October last year.

That Cheltenham effort had seen him compete against better qualifying options in a Novices’ Hurdle and he had entered as the 7/4F.

But he missed out by a length to MAKE ME A BELIEVER.

But Any News returns from a nice break and with plenty of potentials still on his side.

So he warrants a look at 11/2 in Bet365 Premier Novices’ Hurdle betting* (betting odds recorded at 04:04 GMT on March 5th 2021 at Bet365).

Cna Lucky One double up?

There was a victory for LUCKY ONE on his latest run, which was a month ago at Wincanton. That form has actually been franked since.

That victory came in an 18-runner novices event. As Lucky One jumps in grade for this one, he easily commands a bit of respect.

It has been two wins in his last three runs and he is a really gutsy front runner.

So the rest of the field may not want to let him get to the front and dominate.

Lucky One is a 9/2 option for Bet365 Premier Novices’ Hurdle betting on Saturday* (betting odds recorded at 04:04 GMT on March 5th 2021 at Bet365).

Castle Rushen could improve

CASTLE RUSHEN is an interesting one in his field even though he is out at 12/1 for the victory* (betting odds recorded at 04:04 GMT on March 5th 2021 at Bet365).

He was a good jumper winner and this season has made a very positive start. Castle Rushen scored back to back hurdles victories to open the season with.

Then in search of a hat-trick, he was only very narrowly touched off at Carlisle 18 days ago.

The form is there and grants this is a higher-quality field, but as each-way options go, he’s not bad.

Can Alright Sunshine make hurdles progress?

Another of the very useful bumpers winners in this field, ALRIGHT SUNSHINE is of some each-way interest in horse racing betting as well at 20/1* (betting odds recorded at 04:04 GMT on March 5th 2021 at Bet365).

Two weeks ago he went over the hurdles for the first time and put in a very encouraging performance for connections.

That hurdles bow was here at Kelso when he was runner up on a 2m trip.

That was in a field of 17 and while Alright Sunshine was nowhere near the winner, he still caught the eye.

Do Your Job with too much to find

DO YOUR JOB returns to action for the first time after wind surgery. He will also have the tongue tie on for the first as he looks to step things up.

He was last seen in the Tolworth at Sandown a couple of months ago and he looked a long way short, taking fourth-place.

Before that, the Irish point winner had opened the season with back to back wins over the hurdles. But his ability may have been exposed last time out.

Do Your Job is a 16/1 option in the field* (betting odds recorded at 04:04 GMT on March 5th 2021 at Bet365).

Predictions & Tips for Bet365 Premier Novices’ Hurdle Racing Odds

This is such a good field and a really interesting contest. But we do have to go straight to the top for MY DROGO.

He does look to be the one to beat and is justifiably the shortest-priced option at 5/4 in this competitive field* (betting odds recorded at 04:04 GMT on March 5th 2021 at Bet365).

That’s a huge compliment to his ability frankly and he looks as if he can really go places after that Grade 2 Kennel Gate Novices’ Hurdle win at Ascot.

The form of BAREBACK JACK can’t be ignored and he is a fascinating prospect coming up on the trip, which really should see him get close to extending his unbeaten record.

We also like the each-way interstate at 12/1 on CASTLE RUSHEN* (betting odds recorded at 04:04 GMT on March 5th 2021 at Bet365).

He really wasn’t far away from completing a strong hattrick for the season 18 days ago so could arrive back bang in form.
