The novice handicap chase scene is always one of the more fascinating areas of the jumps season in it’s formative weeks, and this time around is certainly no different.
Many horses will have been campaigned over hurdles with a view to aiding their experience bank, before going over fences with a handicap mark that has been assigned to them on what they showed over the smaller obstacles, as opposed to what they potentially could do now tasked with what they were perhaps always bred and bought to do.
It can be an area every late autumn/early winter where we find a few golden nuggets, and with that in mind, every time a decent novice handicap chase pops up, I have a slightly deeper delve into the form.
The Kevin Blake On attheraces.com Novices’ Handicap Chase at 2.17 at Lingfield today is the next instalment, and there are a couple of horses overpriced I believe.
The market was always going to centre itself around the chase and/or handicap debutants from the Dan Skelton, Venetia Williams and Paul Nicholls yards, but perhaps too much so.
While current favourite Dorking Lad’s form took a nice boost with his Fontwell conqueror winning again at Huntingdon, he is not the most straight-forward and has a set of blinkers applied for the first time here.
So, I advise looking a little further down the list of prices, and alighting firstly on the Alex Hales-trained Get Your Own, who at 8/1 each-way with Betfred, who offer 5 places online, is well worth a go at today.
It is Get Your Own’s chase debut today, but he does so off the back of a recent run over hurdles, in much the strongest race any of today’s field can lay claim to, at Ascot behind Soaring Glory, Boothill et al. This suggests to me that Hales has wanted to ensure his charge is race fit before encountering his chase debut.
Markedly outpaced in the mid-section of that Ascot race, for those of us who like to watch how the also-rans hit the line in any race, we were treated to a lovely staying on effort from Get Your Own, which suggests stepping up to 2m4f at Lingfield today is very much going to suit.
The increasingly impressive Harry Bannister takes the ride, and at 8/1 each-way, with the safety net of those 5 places with Betfred, Get Your Own is the bet of the day.
I was also intrigued by Foxboro making his seasonal debut, with some good chasing experience behind him last season, and wouldn’t put anyone off him at the 14/1 generally.
But I do feel it is worth having another small each-way bet on the 33/1 shot Honorary Colonel, with Paddy Power this time, who only offer 4 places. Betfred are 25/1 for 5 places if you would rather the extra place.
Philip Hobbs has begun the season very well, and can often be a trainer that the market undervalues for some reason, and that is very much the case with Honorary Colonel, who ran a huge race on seasonal debut behind Faire Part Sivola at Ffos Las.
Aficionados of the west Wales track will know that any horse who races on the inside on the hurdle track on ground with some give in it, is akin to wading your way through treacle, and that Honorary Colonel was able to inherit second place was testament to his engine.
Similar to the comments about Get Your Own making his chase debut on the back of a recent run, Honorary Colonel could benefit from a similar thought process, and at 33/1 each-way with Paddy Power is significantly overpriced.
