Terrific weekend of racing coming up
Coming up we have the first super-competitive weekend of the jump racing season coming up, with the feature race of the weekend being the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby which, although not a Grade 1 chase, looks very interesting on paper.
Alongside that we have a host of races of Class 3 and better to get stuck into and I'm hoping to find the odd "easier" target away from the main attention where the odds on the runners do not reflect the true chance. Even if we find the value, the horse still has to travel through the race unscathed and emerge as the victor at the business end, but we've had a spot of bad luck already this season and hopefully we can ride the wave.
I've already pointed those on my email list towards an entry on Saturday that looked absurdly long in the market this morning, and I notice that the odds I recommended taking have already been snapped-up and more. I'll put more about this on the blog on Saturday morning.
Tomorrow, there is the "Durham National" to be run at Sedgefield, and this could provide a wagering opportunity. I'll be taking a look at the entries and form when the final declarations are known later this afternoon. Friday, there are a couple of interesting races at Wetherby (we found the winner of the Listed 2m4f Chase last year with Wakanda), and again I will be looking at the entries as soon as they are available to endeavour to find an angle into the race. The weather still remains abnormally dry for the time of year (October is usually a wet month) and this will likely result in the fields for races cutting-up.
