Adonis Hurdle (Kempton) Betting Tip: Charli Parcs to Win 8/13 with Sky Bet
The Betbright Genius Adonis Hurdle at 1.50pm on Saturday is traditionally a springboard for some of the best juvenile hurdlers around.
Nicky Henderson’s Charli Parcs stands out like a sore thumb for the 2017 renewal, where he is a rock solid looking 8/13 chance to follow his win here last time out.
The race will be shown live on ITV Racing on a fantastic afternoon of top National Hunt action in store.
Below Charli Parcs in the betting market is the Evan Williams’ trained Evening Hush, a very useful filly that has won two of her three starts to date.
She ran a bit flat behind Defi Du Seuil in the Grade 1 Future Champions Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow last time out, but looked good at Aintree before that and getting 7lb from her main rivals, she is a danger for sure.
Alan King’s Master Blueyes has been steadily progressing this season and justified short odds in good style at Ludlow last time out. It is possible he could take the jump up class in his stride and go very well here for a racing yard which excels with juveniles. He has a bit of a hill to climb to reach the level of the favourite and Evening Hush.
But Charli Parcs is the big elephant in the room here. Even though he faces some useful opposition here, he may well be the top class prospect and that will probably be the ultimate difference.
He arrives from France with a lofty reputation and on his UK racing debut over the course and distance over Christmas, this four-year-old displayed many of the signs we associate with a class horse.
He’s physically imposing for his age, he jumps and travels well and he quickened up very smartly.
He can be expected to land this race in style and cement his position in the betting markets for the Supreme Novices Hurdle and the Triumph Hurdle at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival next month. Though going by the Cheltenham betting odds, the first mentioned race looks the more likely target.
