2023 For Free Handicap Hurdle Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Friday, 01 December 2023

Ramo has clocked up a number of victories during his career and the bookmakers have respected this runner, with the Venetia Williams-trained horse sure to put up a decent showing. Meanwhile, Hoe Joly Smoke could go well for trainer Dan Skelton and the five-year-old has also been installed as one of the market leaders here.

Hyland comes into this race off back-to-back victories and Nicky Henderson could well achieve a win with this six-year-old, while Uncle Bert was a faller last time out although the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained competitor looks to be favourably weighted. Gentleman At Arms and Ed Keeper are other contenders for the shortlist.

Ramo could run well in the Play Coral "Racing-Super-Series" For Free Handicap Hurdle, with the Venetia Williams-trained runner having won last time out. The six-year-old was able to triumph at Ludlow over two miles and five furlongs, with this win coming at the beginning of November and there were two victories in the previous season.

Hoe Joly Smoke could be the pick of the five-year-olds and Dan Skelton saddles a horse who was third last time out when running in a field of sixteen horses. It was a solid enough performance over two miles, three-and-a-half furlongs, with Hyland another runner that needs to be respected after achieving consecutive victories.

Nicky Henderson was able to see his charge secure a win against nineteen other rivals at Cheltenham recently, with this coming in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle. Sent off at odds of 9/1, the runner was able to achieve a two-length victory and this came after previously obliging in a handicap hurdle at Warwick Racecourse.

Uncle Bert was a faller at Cheltenham Racecourse on his last appearance, with the horse sent off as favourite in that particular encounter although perhaps he will bounce back with a victory here. Previously, the horse was able to secure fourth place at Chepstow in the Silver Trophy Handicap Hurdle on heavy ground.
