Wetherby – Value Bet

Published by on November 23, 2016

Wednesday November 23rd

Wetherby and Hereford today. I am heading to Wetherby, where it is soft ground but not too bad. This course is a stiff jumping test usually, and the run-in is short but can lead to some late drama as it is steadily uphill. It is otherwise pretty flat and fair.

I think the Ewart stable have a couple of good chances today including Catching Shadows in the second division of the novice hurdle at 12.50. There is already money for this horse and the drop in trip today could be the key in another race that lacks strength in depth. This horse won two bumpers over 2 miles, but was upped to 2 and a half miles on his hurdles debut. This looks the ideal test today, as the horse has traveled notably well on soft ground. The 3/1 is a decent price and is worth taking now.

Suggested Bets – Wednesday 23rd November

12.50 Wetherby (Race 2), Catching Shadows, 1.00 Point Win at 3/1 BOG with Bet365 and BetVictor.
