Horse Racing Betting

The new year starts with a fantastic day of racing from Cheltenham and the 2:35 has a special touch about it. That is because Might Bite is making his return to the hurdles after a long absence. While he’s not going to be taking the start as the outright favourite, punters can’t help but ponder what could come up with.

Skandiburg heads a competitive field

Olly Murphy’s Skandiburg heads up the betting for this 2m 7f hurdle. He is in good standing after claiming a win in his last race. That was an effort at Aintree over 3m 1ft back in November 2019. That was the third time that the has taken a win at a distance between 2m to 3m 1f in his career and looks right in the zone at the moment.

After heading into the summer break on the back of a win at Huntingdon in April, Skandiburg returned in October with a second place finish behind Honest Vic at Market Rasen. He needed that run up for the step up in class to nail his Aintree success. Skandenberg is at 9/2 to claim this Cheltenham win* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on December 31st, 2019 at 3:36 pm).

Is there more to come from Tizzard’s Kilbricken Storm?

On his first outing of the winter, Colin Tizzard’s Kilbricken Storm lined up at Cheltenham in December and was well beaten over this distance. He came home 8th of 11 and 2019 wasn’t a great year for him. He won two of four races back in 2018 so has taken a little knock backwards. But in that 2018 positive year, he won at course and distance which may peak interest, but isn’t in red hot form for a 7/1 quote* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on December 31st, 2019 at 3:36 pm)

Can Might Bite make successful return?

What a fascinating entry Might Bite makes for this Cheltenham fixture. He hasn’t been over the hurdles since April 2016. He can back into action in early December at Aintree and unseated jockey Nico de Boinville when he was taking on Native River. That was after pulling up in his one other race of the 2019 calendar year, so punters will likely eye him with a degree of caution.

Might Bite’s last run at Cheltenham was in the 2018 Cheltenham Gold Cup when he was second behind the aforementioned Native River. The 11 year old has won three hurdles and seven chases between distances of 2m 3f and 3m 1f. He seems to have a lot to do to pull it all together here for Nicky Henderson. Might Bite makes his hurdle return at 8/1* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on December 31st, 2019 at 3:36 pm).

Other runners of note

Goodbye Dancer is well worth a look in his race. He goes to Cheltenham on the back of a course and distance win in December 2019. That was in a field of 11 in a Class 2 race. That was easily his best performance of the 2019 calendar year and it should offer a lot of promise for a confident return to Prestbury Park. The 9 year old is a decent hurdler and his recent wins stacks up his appeal as an 8/1 shot* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on December 31st, 2019 at 3:36 pm).

The Jam Man is a distance winner and is another of the contenders who is bringing some form to the table at 7/1* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on December 31st, 2019 at 3:36 pm). He is on course for five wins in a row after winning his latest hurdle outing at Navan last December. That’s three wins which the seven-year-old gelding has put on the board.

Rapper also comes back into action after scoring a win in his previous race. That was at Market Rasen at 2m 7f over the hurdles. Mason Jar is another with some great potential as well after banking three wins this season. It hasn’t quite gone to plan in his last couple of races, but a third at Aintree in December 2019 shows that there is every chance that he can keep maturing.

Predictions

Skandiburg’s win at Aintree showed the potential that he has and there is plenty of further progression to come from him. It will be interesting to see how handles the trip off a 6lb mark higher than he was at Aintree.

Goodbye Dancer may have enough about him to handle the weight too around the track. He scored a very good success last time out at Cheltenham and therefore cannot be dismissed, while the Jam Man has more about him than his last two efforts and can’t be dismissed.
