2023 Persian War Novices Hurdle Betting Odds at Chepstow racecourse

Friday, 13 October 2023

Captain Teague might not yet have an official rating coming into the Persian War Novices' Hurdle at Chepstow Racecourse, although this is the horse being respected the most by the bookmakers for this race. The five-year-old could go well for trainer Paul Nicholls and looks likely to be sent off favourite for an encounter over two miles and three furlongs.

Rock House is another talented horse and the five-year-old will be saddled by Dan Skelton, with the runner among several contenders who have previously won their last race. Everyonesgame is trained by Charlie Longsdon and the highest-rated runner will have jockey Lilly Pinchin on board for this encounter in Wales.

2023 Persian War Novices' Hurdle Tips

There are a number of interesting runners when it comes to the Persian War Novices' Hurdle, with Way Out among them. The Syd Hosie-trained runner has landed three consecutive wins coming into this encounter, with the latest of these coming at Newton Abbot last month when obliging by ten lengths.

Back in May, there were wins at Fakenham and Warwick, so this horse definitely fits the profile of a potential winner. However, it’s Captain Teague who is an interesting runner and comes into the race after previously performing well on the National Hunt circuit. Sent off as a 40/1 rag in the Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival, a third placed finish was landed.

Therefore, don’t be surprised if we see a star performance from the Paul Nicholls-trained runner, with the horse having scored at Plumpton before that Cheltenham performance in March. Rock House is another charge that has been respected by the layers and it’s little surprise when you consider that thirteen-length win at Worcester last time out.

Resplendent Grey has not run since April although a victory came at Perth on that particular occasion and that came after a success at Wetherby earlier that month. The win in the BetVictor Kinnoull Novices’ Hurdle was a particularly smart one, with a victory achieved by nearly five lengths and that came after a Maiden Hurdle win.
