Novices Hurdle Betting Tips, Preview & Prediction

It’s very hard to pick holes in anything ENVOI ALLEN has achieved thus far. Gordon Elliott’s budding star has looked a real powerhouse during his blemish-free career, and is clearly going to make the headline in National Hunt racing for many seasons to come. 

I’ve already backed Envoi Allen and he features in a couple of my multiples. However, from a betting standpoint at this moment in time, he offers little value at such a short price. And, being horse racing, there’s always the chance of an upset. So, I’m going to have a second bet in this year’s Ballymore and the one who appeals at an each-way price is THE BIG BREAKAWAY.

Colin Tizzard’s charge has blown his rivals away in securing back-to-back victories at Newbury and Chepstow. We don’t yet know how well Robbie Power’s mount will respond to pressure, and this is a steep step up in Grade. Yet, my eyes are telling me that The Big Breakaway is a very talented animal. He could even be as good as Envoi Allen.
