Matchbook Betting Exchange Handicap Chase 2019 Analysis

14:00 at Cheltenham on 26th October

This is the eighth edition of this handicap over 3 miles and 1 furlong, and the last seven have all been won by horses rated between 133 and 140. Six of the last seven winners were also returning from a break of over 100 days. SPs have ranged from 7/2 to 16/1, whilst Philip Hobbs and Richard Johnson have each won the race three times.

Hobbs and Johnson team up with Rock The Kasbah, who often goes well fresh, but he has to defy a mark of 150. That’s, amazingly, now 3lb higher than the mark of former Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up Minella Rocco, who would win this at his best, but probably has the Grand National as his ultimate aim.

Only six horses fall into the narrow rating band of previous winners, but Captain Chaos, Red Infantry, and Na Trachtalai Abu are all a few pounds above their last winning mark. That comment also applies to last year’s winner Cogry. Bob Mahler is also above his last winning mark but Daryl Jacob looks a decent booking for a 7-year-old that may have more to offer.

The vote goes to West Approach, who was rated 150+ over hurdles but finds himself off a mark of just 140 over fences. Admittedly, his fencing has left something to be desired, but he was backed from 25/1 to 5/1 to win last season’s Bet365 Gold Cup before not staying that extended trip. He drops back in trip here and Robbie Power takes over the steering after winning a novice chase on his only other ride on him.

Masterson Holdings Hurdle 2019 Analysis

14:35 at Cheltenham on 26th October

Tiger Roll, Dodging Bullets, and Sceau Royal are three top-class horses that have won this 4-year-old hurdle in recent years and connections of many of this year’s entries will be hoping their horses can reach a similar standard.

The Irish challengers Soviet Pimpernel and Construct both arrive here race fit, but that hasn’t been a prerequisite to success in the race. Both also have a fair bit to find on ratings with the top English runners.

Torpillo is officially the highest-rated horse on a mark of 148, a mark which he earned when dotting up on his seasonal debut. But it’s worth noting he finished a long way behind Quel Destin last season when the pair met at Haydock, and he’d be of more interest if the rain gets in the ground and changes it to soft.

Quel Destin is the pick. He is owned and trained by connections of former winner Dodging Bullets, and he won over course and distance last year. He faded into fifth in the Triumph Hurdle but could prove too quick for his rivals.

Randox Health Handicap Chase 2019 Analysis

15:10 at Cheltenham on 26th October

This handicap chase takes place over 1 mile 7 furlongs and 199 yards. The previous four renewals have all been won by horses aged six or eight suggesting Gino Trail, Duke Of Navan, Knocknanuss, Doitforthevillage, and Vaniteux are all older than ideal.

Northern Beau, Master Work, and McGroarty all bring decent recent form to the race but the last four winners have all been making their seasonal debuts after breaks of at least 192 days. That suggests that Marracudja is also up against it as he raced just two weeks ago.

Paul Nicholls and Barry Geraghty teamed up with Modus to win last year’s renewal of the Randox Health Handicap Chase and they team up again this year with Brelan D’as. The 8-year-old put up some decent performances last season off similar marks including when third at the Cheltenham Festival. He could go close but could find himself outclassed by the top-weight Saint Calvados.

Saint Calvados had been highly-tried in the last two seasons and, though he’s mainly fallen short in grade one company, he was good enough to finish in front of former Arke winner Footpad on his seasonal debut last year. That’s the third time he’s won first-time-up and he could be thrown in back in a handicap off 155.
