Dodging Bullets Misfires And Drifts In Champion Chase Betting
In his pre-race interview Paul Nicholls was visually apprehensive about Dodging Bullets chances of kicking off his campaign with a win in the Game Spirit Chase at Newbury, but the lacklustre display put up by the reigning Champion Chase hero would have majorly disappointed the Ditcheat handler, and the two-mile king drited considerably for next month's two-mile Championship crown.
- Dodging Bullets now 12/1 for Champion Chase after Game Spirit defeat
- Top Gamble still available at 33/1 for Ryanair Chase after Newbury romp
- L'Ami Serge drifts to 16/1 for Arkle after Kingmaker loss
Gamble Pays Off For Lee As Bullets Draws A Blank
With Dodging Bullets struggling to land any sort of blow in one of the weekend's highlights, bookmakers were quick to ease the eight-year-old in the Queen Mother betting and Betfred have the Somerset-based gelding as a 12/1 shot for the Grade 1 event on March 16, which duly saw red-hot favourite Un De Sceaux become an even firmer jolly for the second-day showpiece at the Cheltenham Festival.
However, the flat display from Dodging Bullets left the door open for the heavily-backed Top Gamble, who produced a sparkling front-running display under Richard Johnson, and the Kerry Lee-trained star was slashed in the betting for the 2016 Ryanair Chase, but Betfred have still well and truly dangled a carrot at 33/1 for the 2m 5f Grade 1 on the third day of the Prestbury Park extravaganza next month.
Since taking over the reins from her father, Richard, Kerry Lee has been a regular in the winner's enclosure in big races, as this cracking win with Top Gamble added to Mountainous' sparkling victory in the Welsh National last month, and she is certainly a trainer that is showing that she can battle it out with the big boys of the National Hunt sphere.
Kelly Continues To Shine With Betfair Hurdle Success
Lizzie Kelly catapulted into the limelight once again at the weekend, as she partnered 16/1 shot Agrapart to victory in the valuable Betfair Hurdle, and having become the first lady rider to bag a Grade 1 win on board Tea For Two over the festive period, Kelly continues to show her talents in the saddle.
As red-hot favourite Blazer was in trouble turning for home, Tom Scudamore on board Starchitect looked to have kicked clear, but Kelly kept her mount up to his work, and having outjumped the aforementioned Starchitect at the final hurdle, she breezed comfortably clear in testing to conditions to land the most valuable handicap hurdle in Europe to record her 12th success of the season.
L'Ami Serge Could Still Head To Arkle Despite Warwick Defeat
Despite L'Ami Serge's odds-on defeat to Violet Dancer in Warwick's Kingmaker Novices' Chase on Saturday, Nicky Henderson has said that his Seven Barrows raider could still take his chance in the Arkle Challenge Trophy, but the bookmakers feel that he will struggle to land any sort of blow on Douvan, and L'Ami Serge is now available at 16/1 with Sky Bet for the 2m novice chase crown on the opening day of Cheltenham.
Jamie Moore's front-running tactics on board Violet Dancer certainly had L'Ami Serge out of his comfort zone, but whilst ground conditions may not have been ideal it was his novicey jumps in the latter part of the race that raised the most concern, and it's hard to feel that last year's Supreme Novices' Hurdle contender can bounce back to shine next month and it's hard to get too excited about the double-figured odds offered by bookmakers.
Another novice chaser that blotted his copybook this weekend was Black Hercules, who suffered a final fence fall in the Grade 2 Ten Up Novice Chase at Navan, but despite his late tumble the Willie Mullins-trained star is still the 4/1 favourite for the National Hunt Chase with bet365 and is the one to beat in the four-miler next month.
