Grand Annual Betting Tips, Predictions & Betting Preview

All of the past five winners of this handicap had previously run in the race. The betting for Friday’s renewal, however,  is dominated by novices, so backing a less-exposed handicapper could be the way to go. Greaneteen and Lisp hold obvious chances, but I’d prefer to side with Gordon Elliott’s youngster, ÉCLAIR DE BEAUFEU.

Elliott’s charge was running really well in the County Hurdle 12 months ago, only to fall at the final flight. Elliott has got plenty of chasing experience into his novice this term, running him twice in Graded-level novice races, and Éclair De Beaufeu comes into this on the back of a convincing victory over Paloma Blue at the Dublin Racing Festival.

Sean O’Keeffe comes in to take five pounds off his mount’s back, and I think Éclair De Beaufeu could be the start of a late day four double for Elliott and Gigginstown.

Verdict

Greaneteen and Lisp hold obvious chances, but my preference is to side with Gordon Elliott’s youngster, ÉCLAIR DE BEAUFEU
