Betfair Hurdle

The Betfair Hurdle can throw up some decent winners including 'My Tent Or Yours' & 'Zarkandar' in recent years and this years renewal looks interesting rather than vintage. Here are the main contenders and our verdict on Saturday's race:-

Ballyandy (5/1)
Last season's Champion Bumper winner hasn't quite lived up to expectations over hurdles this season, however, trainer believes he has been let in lightly on handicap debut, can see running in first three but no steal at the prices. 

Movewiththetimes (11/2)
behind Ballyandy in November at Cheltenham but in good hands and looks the type to improve with racing.

Clyne (11/2)
Winner in the fog in Dec and career best last time, all three of those runs came at Haydock on v soft ground and others preferred here.

William H Bonney (9/1)
Good winner at Cheltenham last time and value for more than winner margin, fancied to go well and 9/1 looks value EW.

 

Conclusion: - At the prices 'William H Bonney' looks overpriced, was value for more than winning margin at Cheltenham last time and fancied to go close.
