Doncaster Betbright Handicap Chase Betting Preview: Un Prophete To Win with Paddy Power
The 2.25pm race at Doncaster on Saturday afternoon is a 2-mile handicap chase and this class two event presents a real test of speed and jumping ability.
ITV Racing will be covering the card, which hosts a wealth of competitive National Hunt horse racing action and this £30,000 contest is sure to draw a quality field of horses in search of their share of the pie.
Cheltenham Festival betting may be in full swing, but there’s still a Saturday or two of great racing beforehand to whet your appetite!
Venetia Williams is a stable in really good form at the moment, with six winners in the last fortnight and she has long been a trainer partial to a nice handicap chase winner at Doncaster.
Her Bright New Dawn is the top weight here, set to shoulder a burden weight of 11st 12lb. This ex-Irish trained horse has been fairly consistent this season, but does struggle to hit winning form and in truth, it is more significant that she is responsible for stablemate UN PROPHETE having a nice racing weight of just 10st 8lb, and is now at 6/1 with Paddy Power bookmakers.
A three time winner in France, this six-year-old struggled for form when he first started racing in the UK, but the grey gelding has now started to settle into our way of life and his form on the track has improved considerably.
Un Prophete has already raced four times in 2017, with two wins at Ludlow and Southwell and he followed that up with a somewhat unlucky second on testing ground at Leicester last time out.
He will race here from the same handicap mark of 127 and with jockey Charlie Deutsch claiming a handy 3lb, the horse is weighted to run another massive race and at odds of 6/1 at the time of writing, the Venetia Williams charge looks the value bet here.
Paul Nicholls is likely to saddle up Click Work, an in-form and progressive youngster who is the likely favourite and biggest threat to all.
