Jack Milner of BetVictor.com casts his eye over Tuesday’s cards and picks out a few Entries for the opening leg of the spring double were released with Roger Varian’s Morando the 5/1 favourite with BetVictor at the five-day stage, bidding to reverse the form with Roger Charlton’s Champions Day winner Yuften. The latter is 7/1 from 8s after an excellent third on his seasonal reappearance but must concede a pound to the Varian inmate, having been on level weights in the Balmoral Handicap at Ascot. Neither Charlton nor Varian are represented on the all-weather at Wolverhampton however, Newmarket trainers are still out in force with William Sayle (2.50) expected to go close in the 9f Maiden under Andrea Atzeni. The well-bred colt made an eye-catching debut last month at Kempton when not knocked about and […]

Jack Milner of BetVictor.com picks out Monday’s best bets Jim Crowley enjoyed a terrific winter in his debut season as Sheikh Hamdan’s retained rider and arrives back from Dubai World Cup night at Meydan to partner Wurdood (1.50) for William Haggas at Wolverhampton. The selection was a beaten favourite when last seen finishing fifth at Doncaster in November however, based on the Dark Angel filly’s excellent third on debut at Yarmouth, is chanced to shed the maiden tag at third time of asking stepping up in trip. Crowley partners exciting colt Muqaatil in the 3yo Handicap over an extended nine furlongs with Richard Hannon’s charge unexposed after showing promise in all three runs in maiden company. The son of Lonhro was a beaten favourite when last seen running over 7f and should improve for the […]


BetVictor’s Charlie McCann with Grand National update and Wednesday’s cards

BetVictor’s Charlie McCann with Grand National update and Wednesday’s cards News yesterday that Gold Cup runner up and Grand National favourite Minella Rocco (10/1 favourite with BetVictor) would miss Aintree and be trained next season with Cheltenham again his primary target. The news came as something of a shock given stamina is the horse’s forte but no seven-year-old has won the race since Bogscar in 1940 and connections must feel now is not the right time. As a result, Haydock Trial winner Vieux Lion Rouge is the new 10/1 favourite with Cause Of Causes (12/1 from 14s) and Blaklion (12s from 14s) cut following the news of the favourite’s defection. A good card from Haydock to look forward to today and a cracking 2m 4f handicap chase with all five runners having finished first or […]


Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com previews Tuesday’s cards

Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com previews Tuesday’s cards Good ground is the order of the day at Wetherby this afternoon for their seven-race card and William Of Orange (3.25) will appreciate the underfoot conditions having had a two-month break since finishing fifth of fifteen at Catterick last time in first-time cheek-pieces. The selection was rated 90 on the flat for Sir Mark Prescott and did run his best race over timber to date when runner up at today’s west Yorkshire track over two miles back in December. This additional half mile should suit given he finished runner up over two miles on the flat at York less than two years ago and the hope is that he is freshened him up after his mini-break. I hope to see Powerful Symbol (4.00) improve for the return to […]

Hopefully we can strike some gold and finish the week the way we started. Here’s another win double along with some each-way chances to have a flutter on. As ever, you’re covered if you lose the first and last race with our headline offer.

He won at both the Open and International meeting at the end of last year, while champion jockey Richard Johnson […]
