Here at Against the Crowd we have plenty of big races and betting propositions to look forward to in the weeks ahead….
On Saturday 21st January, it is G1 Clarence House Chase day at Ascot….
I’m not sure we’ll be betting in the feature race – that will depend on how the entries cut up. But with a G2 race for the mares and a couple of big handicaps also on the card., we won’t be short of options….
Haydock offers options too. It’s Peter Marsh Chase day at the Lancashire track….
We always have a crack at the Thyestes Handicap Chase at Gowran Park. It’s a big-field event over the 25-furlong trip. This time round they go to post on Thursday 26th January.
The Cheltenham Festival is very much on the horizon now that we’re into the New Year. Festival Trials Day meeting takes place at the track this year on Saturday 28th January. We’ll be there – looking for bets and for clues….
We’ll also be up at Doncaster for the Sky Bet Handicap Chase over the 3-mile trip.
On Saturday 11th February, it is Betfair Hurdle day at Newbury. In addition to the feature race there’s also the Game Spirit Chase and the Denman Chase – both offering Festival clues aplenty.
The Cheltenham Festival will be on top of us before you know it. It starts this year on Tuesday 14th March and runs through to Friday 17th March.
This is not a comprehensive list of races we’ll be targeting in the weeks ahead. We’ll know more as we get closer to the dates concerned – so be sure to check back in from time to time for updates.
Nor does this list of races represent a list of definite betting targets. We only bet when we identify good betting options at value prices. If we don’t like the way the race cuts up or we don’t like the shape of the market, we don’t offer selections just for the sake of it.
