Cheltenham Festival Day Two Preview – Horse Racing Betting March 14

Cheltenham Festival
SAMCRO looks a banker in the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle at the start of day two of the Cheltenham Festival. Gordon Elliott resisted the temptation to run his star novice in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle yesterday and probably has another Irish raider, Next Destination, to beat in this lesser contest, though nobody will be getting rich at the current best 8/11. Honours were fairly even between Ireland and the home team on the opening day of The Festival and day two promises to be just as competitive, though Irish eyes should be smiling again after the second race, the RSA Insurance Novices' Chase. This is as much a race for future stayers as yesterday's National Hunt Chase and Presenting Percy has been popular with ante-post punters and is set to go off favourite (currently a best 5/2). He won the Pertemps Final over hurdles last year for Patrick Kelly and has proved just as adept over fences but could find MONALEE a tough opponent. Henry De Bromhead's seven-year-old has always looked a chaser in the making, despite having the speed to finish second in last year's Albert Bartlett over the smaller obstacles. He's won both completed starts over fences, beating today's rivals Al Boum Photo and Dounikos in a Grade 1 at Leopardstown last time, and the return to 3m is probably a plus - the 7/2 with Betbright looks a bit of value. Bryony Frost has developed a terrific partnership with Black Corton but this may be a step too far for the Paul Nicholls runner.

RSA Insurance Novices' Chase Current Best Odds

Presenting Percy 5/2, Monalee 7/2, Al Boum Photo 7/1, Black Corton and Dounikos 8/1, Elegant Escape 11/1, Ballyoptic 18/1, Bonbon Au Miel 25/1, Allysson Monterg 50/1, Full Irish 100/1 The Coral Cup comes under the 'too hard' category while a late injury scare has dampened enthusiasm for backing ALTIOR at a best 5/4 in the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase and who's to say which of Willie Mullins' five runners in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper will prove best but TIGER ROLL could be worth an interest in the Glenfarclas Chase over the cross-country fences. Gordon Elliott won the race last year with Cause Of Causes, ridden by Jamie Codd, and that partnership has been backed for a repeat (a general 11/4). But the stable also run Bless the Wings, who has run over the cross-country fences, and Tiger Roll. The latter won the National Hunt Chase at the meeting last year and his run behind Bless The Wings at Cheltenham in December had all the hallmarks of a prep race, though he's now into a general 6/1. The Last Samuri is the potential fly in the ointment but the Aintree specialist will have to adapt quickly to the unique challenge of the obstacles.  

Betfair Hurdle Odds and Preview – Horse Racing Betting February 10

Horse Racing Betting
The Betfair Hurdle is a Grade 3 Handicap run over a distance of approximately 2m at Newbury. The race, worth more than ÂŁ88,000 to the winner, is considered among the most prestigious races of its type in the UK racing calendar. It's certainly one of the most vaulable and always attracts a big field with the average number of runners taking part since the turn of the century around 20. A maximum 24 have stood their ground this year and there are also two reserves.

Betfair Hurdle History and Trends

The Betfair Hurdle was first run in 1963, originally at Aintree. The race was first sponsored by drinks maker Schweppes and was known as the Schweppes Gold Trophy. Ryan Price won the first two runnings with Rosyth and trained four of the first five winners of the race. Schweppes’ sponsorship continued until 1986 when it was taken over by Tote Bookmakers (later known as totesport). The race was renamed the Tote Gold Trophy from 1987 to 2004, and the totesport Trophy from 2005 to 2011. Since 2012 the race has been sponsored by Betfair and has assumed its current title. Two winners of the race — Persian War and Make a Stand — subsequently achieved victory in the following month’s Champion Hurdle. Lightly-raced five and six year-olds, in their first or second season jumping, have dominated this prize with that age group responsible for the last 10 winners. All had had no more than 10 career starts over hurdles with five having had no more than four, but three outings over timber is probably the minimum requirement. None of the last 10 winners have carried more than 11st 2lb and only one finished outside the first three in its previous start. Gary Moore has trained three of the last 10 winners and saddles Knockanuss this year.

Betfair Hurdle Current Best Odds

Irish Roe 10/1, Lalor and Jenkins 11/1, Bleu Et Rouge, Kalashnikov, Kayf Grace, Waterlord and Verdana Blue 12/1, Knocknanuss and Silver Streak 14/1, Lough Derg Spirit 16/1, High Bridge and Misterton 20/1, Coeur Blimey, Moon Racer, Poppy Kay and Spiritofthegames 25/1, William H Bonney 28/1, Charli Parcs 33/1, Divin Bere and Project Bluebook 40/1, Zalvados, Nietzsche and Remiluc 50/1 Lalor arrives with similar credentials to last year's winner Ballyandy and has been popular with punters. He was a high-class bumper horse last season but has yet to win over hurdles. However, the late Richard Woollacott held in him high regard and time will tell he's well treated on a mark of 137 on his handicap debut. But, as race time approaches, he's on the drift and is out to a general 11/1. High Bridge (a best 20/1) and Jenkins, the top two in the weights, are both unbeaten at Newbury. The latter carries a penalty but has rediscovered his mojo in recent weeks and James Bowen's claim is a plus - he is also a general 11/1. Spiritofthegames ran a cracking race in the Lanzarote at Kempton having won his two previous starts. The ability to stay further is usually an advantage in this contest and Dan Skelton's gelding may be overpriced at 25/1 with BetBright in first-time cheekpieces. As well as Jenkins, champion trainer Nicky Henderson also runs Charli Parcs, Kayf Grace, Verdana Blue and Lough Derg Spirit. The latter pair may be the pick of that quartet at 12/1 and 16/1 respectively but Amy Murphy thinks the world of KALASHNIKOV, who may have lost his unbeaten record at Sandown last time but would not have been suited by the heavy going and that was a Grade 1. He is another hovering around the 12/1 mark at the time of writing and might be the one to beat. Peter Atkinson is not a trainer one normally associates with valuable handicaps like the Betfair Hurdle but the North Yorkshire trainer has done well with Irish Roe and his mare deserves to take her chance. She's gone up a stone in the weights in the last year but looked as good as ever when just failing to overhaul Maria's Benefit in a Grade 2 at Doncaster two weeks ago. She goes well on Town Moor and this track is similar in nature, though she is a little more exposed than some and is now only a best 10/1 with BetBright.  

Investec Derby Odds Update – Horse Racing Betting June 3

Horse Racing Betting
All the meaningful trials for next month's Investec Derby have been run and the field is beginning to take shape. But 2000 Guineas winner Churchill will not get the chance to prove his stamina and compete for the Triple Crown - he's due to run in the Irish 2000 Guineas and will probably be kept to a mile.

Investec Derby History and Trends

The first running of the Derby Stakes was at Epsom on May 4th, 1780. But, in those days, it was open to three-year-old colts and fillies and run over a mile. There were nine runners, and although Lord Derby won the toss of the coin to decide the name of the race, it was Sir Charles Bunbury who owned the first winner – Diomed. The Derby distance was extended to a mile and a half in 1784. Towards the end of the 18th century, Derby Day had established itself as not only a major sporting event but also 'The Londoners’ Day Out'. That remains the case with the Downs always packed with viewing platforms at a premium. The 1913 Derby produced the most sensational race in its entire history when a protesting suffragette – Emily Davison – brought down the King’s horse by running onto the course at Tattenham Corner. She was unfortunately killed in the collision. Those near the head of the market have a terrific recent record in the Investec Derby. Five of the last 12 favourites have won and all of the last 12 winners have been among the first three in the betting on the day. None of the previous dozen winners had run at Epsom before so that form line involving Cracksman and Dante winner Permian (who still has to be supplemented for the Derby at the time of writing) may not be wholly reliable. Cracksman, himself, winner of the Derby Trial at Epsom last month, was not an original Derby entry and Permian has already run four times in 2017 - none of the last 12 winners had run more than twice as a three-year-old. Most recent winners had run in the previous five weeks and all but one had won a Group race at some stage of their career. Aidan O'Brien has won three of the last five renewals of the Investec Derby and five times in total. The master of Ballydoyle has a very strong entry this year, despite the likely absence of Churchill. Venice Beach beat stable companions Wings Of Eagles and The Anvil, and Tamleek, in the Chester Vase but only one of the last 12 winners had run over 1m4f previously and he's already run three times this year. Cliffs Of Moher looks a better bet as he'll have learned plenty from his win in the Dee Stakes at Chester but the Derby is a significant step up in class and stablemate DOUGLAS MACARTHUR is more than five times his current odds (25/1 with Betbright). The Galileo colt is making up into a smart three-year-old and, having finished second to Rekindling at Leopardstown on his reappearance, beat the better-fancied Yucatan and Capri in the Derby Trial at the same track. Betbright are something of a relative newcomer to the betting industry but everything that you would expect from a high quality online bookmaker is in place on their site. So to get access to a pretty high quality service and the bookmaker offers up a nice welcome bonus for new customers in the form of a risk free bet, so you have nothing to lose right off the bat. There is a good feel about the site, from the layout through to how easily operated it all is. In order to get started with them, their quick signup process won't slow you down at all. After you have signed up and deposited with them, you get some insurance on your first stake with them as their bonus offer. If you go and bet at least £10 on your first wager on the account, you will get the 50% of it as a free bet, if it loses (max. £50!). You can see the full terms and conditions of the Betbright welcome bonus here. So essentially this is just a risk free bet covering half the opening bet that you make on your account to keep on betting without risking all of your money.  We fancied Eminent in the 2000 Guineas but little went right for Martyn Meade's stable star on the day. Trapped wide, he saw too much daylight and was beaten inside the final quarter-mile. His trainer thinks he'll stay the Derby distance but his breeding suggests otherwise. Best Solution beat Glencadam Glory in the Lingfield Derby Trial but doesn't have the profile of a classic winner.

Investec Derby Current Best Odds

Cliffs Of Moher and Cracksman (9/2), Eminent (7/1), Best Solution (12/1), Permian (14/1), Venice Beach and Yucatan (16/1), Dubai Thunder (20/1), Douglas Macarthur, Waldgeist, Wings Of Eagles, Rekindling and Capri (25/1), Benbati and Best Of Days (33/1), Crowned Eagle and Thunder Snow (40/1), Glencadam Glory, The Anvil and Tamleek (50/1), Salouen and Finn McCool (66/1), Firece Impact (100/1), Pealer (200/1), Diore Lia (1000/1)

BetBright Best For Festival Betting Handicap Chase Odds and Preview – Horse Racing Betting January 1

Horse Racing Betting
Saturday's racing is ending 2016 with a bit of a damp squib but there is a cracking card to look forward to at Cheltenham at the start of 2017, when the ITV cameras take over coverage of UK racing from Channel 4 with some old and new faces. The Grade 2 Betbright Dipper Novices' Chase and Dornan Engineering Relkeel Hurdle are excellent support races to what is likely to be the biggest betting heat on Sunday - the BetBright Best For Festival Betting Handicap Chase. BetBright have close ties with Cheltenham via Executive Chairman Rich Ricci. The former Barclay's CEO has seen his silks become synonymous with National Hunt racing and the Cheltenham Festival in particular. Annie Power, Douvan, Min and countless other top-class jumpers run in the Ricci colours and BetBright have poured plenty of euros into the first fixture of the New Year at Cheltenham in the last two years. BetBright, who are an Irish operator, allow customers to get deep into their sports betting with an extensive sportsbook. They have produced some rapid growth in the industry, even though they are something of a relative newcomer to the game. Everything that you would expect from a high quality online bookmaker is in place on the site and the bookmaker offers up a nice welcome bonus for new customers in the form of a risk free bet, so you have nothing to lose right off the bat. There is a good feel about the site, from the layout through to how easily operated it all is. In order to get started with them, their quick sign-up process won't slow you down at all. After you have signed up and deposited with them, you get some insurance on your first stake with them as their bonus offer. If you go and bet at least £10 on your first wager on the account, you will get the 50% of it as a free bet, if it loses (max. £50!). You can see the full terms and conditions of the BetBright welcome bonus here. The Best For Festival Betting Handicap Chase is the third in a series of competitive handicap chases run over 2m4f throughout the season at Cheltenham's big meetings and some old favourites are going into battle again. Village Vic (a best 5/1) has already been placed in the BetVictor Gold Cup and the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup and won this weekend's race last year. He has another 14lb to carry, however, and connections of last year's second and third - Tenor Nivernais and Top Gamble - will fancy their chances of revenge. Tenor Nivernais (a general 12/1) ran a fine race when third at Ascot on his reappearance, though is probably better going right-handed. QUITE BY CHANCE meets Village Vic on the same terms as when finishing half-a-length behind him last time at Cheltenham but he could probably count himself unlucky having been hampered on the final circuit. He had to recover lost ground so the 7/1 on offer this time could be quite attractive if he gets a trouble-free passage and his yard continue to come up trumps on big race days. As Du Mee easily won the Grand Sefton over the National fences at Aintree last month but really needs some give in the ground and Vaniteux doesn't have the best of records at Cheltenham so Thomas Brown (11/1 with BetVictor) may be best of the rest having failed to handle the mud last time.

BetBright Best For Festival Betting Handicap Chase Current Best Odds

Village Vic (5/1), Vaniteux (11/2), As De Mee (13/2), Quite By Chance (7/1), Top Gamble and Thomas Brown (11/1), Henri Parry Morgan and Tenor Nivernais (12/1), Shantou Flyer and Foxtail Hill (16/1), Shutthefrontdoor and Thomas Crapper (20/1), Solar Impulse (50/1)
