Unibet Racing’s Will Petit brings us their biggest market moves and ones to watch from Friday’s racing action.
Beware the Dundalk steamer! Plus who’s on the move antepost for the Ultima at Cheltenham?
7/1 from 28/1
TOTAL RECHARGE is the biggest steamer of the day. The once raced 3yo shaped with promise when green on debut in December over course and distance and is a likely improver today. We took a beating on a similar gamble yesterday and perhaps Halford’s charge has been showing plenty at home as this is a significant gamble. Ominous?
13/2 from 8/1
Joseph O’Brien is in redhot form at present and punters believe this unexposed 3yo can continue that run. IFYOUHAVEAMINUTE didn’t appear to handle a marked step up in trip on handicap debut and he drops back to 6f today. Wayne Lordan takes over in the plate and stall 6 is ideal. Every chance.
100/30 from 9/2
Course and distance winner JACK THE TRUTH is currently our best backed at Chelmsford this evening. He’s sliding down at the weights despite placing in two of his last four starts. Unibet ambassador Luke Morris is back in the saddle, which is a plus, and punters have decided now is the time to catch George Scott’s 5yo.
Ultima Handicap (antepost)
16/1 from 25/1
Year after year after year Festival form proves a key pointer when trying to pick winners at March’s event and it’s interesting that we’ve seen good support for MISTER WHITAKER last night and this morning. It’s the 7yo’s only handicap entry at The Festival and punters appear to have latched onto this and got stuck in following the release of the handicap entries yesterday.
