Saturday Each Way Double Tip

Saturday Each Way Double Tip

 Two e/w fancies to get you excited for this Saturday..

Many of you will be very pleased to see the back of the flat season and the start of the jumps. If this weekends cards at Wetherby & Ascot are not enough to get racegoers excited for the forthcoming season then I don’t know what will. At Wetherby we see the return of the prestigious bet365 meeting. Featuring the £100,000 Grade 2 bet365 Charlie Hall Steeplechase, an early highlight in the Jump Season which will see potential Gold Cup contenders battle it out in their first trial on the long road to the Cheltenham and Aintree Festivals.

We will also be seeing the much loved Cue Card, Coneygree & Lil Rockerfeller in action over the two days. The attendance is always high for this meeting and this is seen as the North’s opportunity to see the big guns of the National Hunt racing world.

We will be going for an Each Way Double this weekend. An Each Way bet is 2 bets on one horse, one on it to win and one on it to place, so therefore your stake on an each way bet is double (E.G. £1 each way is a total stake of £2). The ‘Win’ part of the bet is on your horse to win the race, and the ‘Place’ part is on your selection to finish either first or in one of the number of places, e.g. 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc.

If your horse wins (Get in!), both the ‘Win’ and ‘Place’ parts of the bet will pay out. However, if your selection only places, you will lose the ‘Win’ part of your bet (and the stake) but get paid out on the ‘Place’.

The odds for the ‘Place’ are given as a fraction of the odds for the ‘Win’ and will be displayed to you when you place your bet.

Our first selection comes in the Charlie Hall Steeplechase


The 11 time winner was last seen in action when being pulled up in the Grand National. Unfortunately, he was an unlucky faller early on and didn’t get to show his true potential. Since joining Brian Ellison, he has been a remarkably consistent horse who has won some big races. He is proven on the course, having won one race and came 2nd in his other start. If Definitly Red can rediscover his pre National form then he should go very well. He is a very game horse and at only 8 years old he could prove the one to side with in opposition to the ageing 11 year old Cue Card & 10 year old Coneygree.

Our second selection also comes from Wetherby, in the bet365 Hurdle


There is no debating that Nigel Twiston-Davies’ Wholestone is a very classy horse. Two – time Class 1 winner, he proved his ability last season by winning two races at Cheltenham and finished a very respectable third in the Novice Hurdle during the Cheltenham Festival. His reappearance this season didn’t go entirely to plan but he finished a decent fourth and travelled like the best horse in the race. He was slightly outpaced in the finished but looked like a horse that needs further and the step up from 2m3f to 2m5f this time out should suit him. We are expecting a big run.
