StarGate the 11/8 FAV for Winter Novices’ Hurdle betting

The exciting Evan Williams’ prospect STAR GATE is the current 11/8 favourite* (betting odds taken from Coral at 23:10 GMT on Thursday, 3rd December 2020).

He scored in an Irish pointer last season. Then he made an excellent impression on his reappearance run.

Star Gate was sent out in a maiden hurdle at Chepstow in October and got the win there.

It was a facile victory as well and a quick one at that. So there is a lot of promise there after going so well on his first run under rules.

There is a nice steep curve ahead of him we would suggest. Star Gate has to be in the frame in this five-runner field.



Sending Love the big threat to the favourite?

SENDING LOVE benefited from wind surgery as he has come back to form on his last effort.

That was on his reappearance run as well, scoring at Ffos Las. That was the third go under rules for him and that saw his potential unleashed.

That victory at Ffos Las was after an 8-month break. That success at Ffos Las was a long time coming for the Paul Nicholls gelding.

Sending Love had secured a point win back in 2017 and had only two races before getting that success.

Sending Love is the 11/4 second-favourite and goes for last year’s winning combination of Coben and Nicholls.

Valleres the way to go for Winter Novices’ betting?

Our tip for the Ballymore Winter Novices’ Hurdle is VALLERES at 5/1* (betting odds taken from Coral at 23:10 GMT on Thursday, 3rd December 2020).

We think that a is a reasonable quote to snap up on Alan King’s gelding.

Valleres opened this season with a win at Wetherby in a novice hurdle. There was plenty to spare from him in that one as well.

He followed that up with another excellent run at Ludlow.

That was a second-place finish that Valleres took on his most recent run. So the former Irish point winner could have a big say in this contest.

Press Your Luck seeks a hattrick

PRESS YOUR LUCK will likely enjoy himself on this big step up in distance.

The Irish point winner showed up at newton Abbot for his first run of this campaign. He got the win there in October, staying on very well.

Then with a penalty slapped on him, Press Your Luck followed up with a very good score at Uttoxeter, travelling well.

It does look as if he has the extra trip in him really and is not to be counted out as a 9/2 option* (betting odds taken from Coral at 23:10 GMT on Thursday, 3rd December 2020).

Any News to write the headlines?

This is a very strong renewal of the Winter Novices’ Hurdle and ANY NEWS will be looking to complete a hattrick in it.

On his first go under rules on his reappearance run, he struck a win at Exeter over the hurdles on his debut in the discipline.

He followed it straight up with a success at Bangor last month, crushing the second-placed Easy As That by 10 lengths.

It was impressive stuff all the way and he could have a say in this really hot contest.

Predictions & Tips for Winter Novices’ Hurdle Racing Odds

This is a really strong renewal with big claims everywhere.

STAR GATE is an obvious one to gravitate towards after posting a very quick time to score at Chepstow over the hurdles on his reappearance.

But there’s no easy run for him here and we think VALLERES has enough to take this from 5/1* (betting odds taken from Coral at 23:10 GMT on Thursday, 3rd December 2020).

We like both runs that he has had this season and looked to be in fine jumping form at Ludlow last time out.

The other three remaining all bring some excellent claims to the table, with SENDING LOVE perhaps the most intriguing of them.
