National News And Tuesday’s best bets from Jack Milner

Jack Milner of with Grand National news and his views on Tuesday’s cards, BetVictor confirmed they are Non Runner No Bet on the Randox Health Grand National from yesterday morning’s five-day entry stage. The firm have been betting ¼ odds each way 6 places on the great race from Friday 31/03/2017. Former Becher Chase winner Highland Lodge (20 from 33s) and Lord Windermere (33s from 50s) have been the market movers over the weekend with the largely settled weather forecast this week considered a big boost for the latter a former Cheltenham Gold Cup winner. The likely good ground will be a positive for Charlie Longsdon’s Drop Out Joe, 66/1 from 100s with BetVictor on Monday morning, with the yard in excellent form over the weekend including a 1-2 in the Veterans’ Chase at […]

BetVictor’s Jack Milner takes a look at Monday’s cards

BetVictor’s Jack Milner takes a look at Monday’s cards The flat season came back with a bang at the weekend, with Oh This Is Us saving the bookmakers a fortune in Saturday’s Lincoln at Doncaster. Ryan Moore rode the first three winners of the new turf season, all well-backed on the show too, completing a 575/1 treble with Tupi in the Spring Mile. That saw Oh This Is Us backed into 7/2 favourite for the straight mile on Town Moor, only for the four-timer to be narrowly denied by former Ballydoyle inmate Bravery for Danny Tudhope and David O’Meara. The winner got up in a photo on the far side to save the industry millions and, after Moore’s other ride was withdrawn in the closing maiden, multiple backers were narrowly denied a monstrous coup on […]

BetVictor’s Jack Milner highlights Friday’s best bets

BetVictor’s Jack Milner highlights Friday’s best bets Yuften has been made the 4/1 favourite with BetVictor for the opening leg of the spring double, after ante-post favourite Morando was ruled out of tomorrow’s curtain-raiser on the flat, much to the disappointment of trainer Roger Varian. Trainer Brian Ellison will be praying for rain on Town Moor for Top Notch Tonto, who is now 8/1 from 16s for the Lincoln at Doncaster, and stablemate Definitly Red now 10/1 from 14s joint-favourite for the second leg in next week’s Grand National at Aintree. Lincoln prices from BetVictor Yuften 4/1 Donccha 6/1 Top Notch Tonto 8/1 10/1 Bar Ellison’s string remain in good form and I’m keen to see how New List (5.20) gets on in the Wetherby finale under 7lb conditional Kaine Wood. The pilot is well […]

BetVictor’s Charlie McCann runs the rule over Thursday’s cards

BetVictor’s Charlie McCann runs the rule over Thursday’s cards last year’s Scottish National winner Vicente, recently bought privately by Trevor Hemmings, has been the best-backed horse in recent days for the Grand National and was cut from 20s from 33/1 at BetVictor for the Aintree spectacular. The entries, but not weights, came out yesterday for the Topham Chase on Ladies Day and at first glance, my two against the field would be Stellar Notion for Ireland and Warrior’s Tale representing Paul Nicholls. I presented the champion trainer with the prize after Warrior’s Tale jumped superbly to win a BetVictor sponsored race at Newbury earlier in the month and we both nominated the Topham as his next port of call. At Ludlow this afternoon Kerry Lee looks to have found a gilt-edged opportunity for Gino Trail […]

Jack Milner reflects on Cheltenham and digs a few out for Monday’s racing

Jack Milner reflects on Cheltenham and digs a few out for Monday’s racing The Cheltenham Festival was another brilliant week of National Hunt racing with the three novice chase successes of Altior, Yorkhill and Might Bite in particular proving memorable and likely to be competing for Championship honours at next year’s meeting. Might Bite won the RSA Chase despite hanging across the Cheltenham track in the closing stages, and is 4/1 with BetVictor for the King George on Boxing Day at Kempton. King George prices from BetVictor Thistlecrack 5/2 Might Bite 4/1 Sizing John 5/1 Douvan 6/1 Yorkhill 8/1 12/1 Bar The gelding famously fell at the last when clear in the G1 Kauto Star Novices’ Chase in December but will likely head to the track in a bid to atone for that final fence […]
