For Wednesday’s action we have three Jumps meetings coming from Chepstow, Warwick and Musselburgh and I have selected one from each for you. The jumps season is really starting to heat up now and there are so many great races upcoming, as well as some big names returning to the track for their seasonal debuts.
The first of those makes his presence felt on Thursday. So, all eyes glued to the screen as Allaho gets back on course in the Clonmel Oil Chase. He is an incredible three-miler and even though he may not be at his best first time out, it will be great to see him fit, well and racing again. I cannot wait!

I was having a hard time deciding which of these great Jumps meetings to go for, so I’ve decided to bring you my best bets for all three. Today I’m pretty hot on the Chasers and all three of my picks have the potential to bring us in a tidy profit.
The opener at Chepstow looks a tricky one to solve, as there are plenty in the lineup with decent credentials. King Turgeon, running for David Pipe, is a nice horse and he looks like he ought to appreciate the step up to three miles, plus he has a valuable 8lbs off his back with Gearoid Harney in the saddle. He could go well if he is ready to go first time out and he’s also one that I think will improve further as the season goes on.
The one I find the most interesting here though is Rogue De L’Quest for the Rebecca Curtis team. He had some decent form over this trip from last season when he was running over Hurdles and the switch to fences seems likely to suit. I imagine sending him Chasing has been the plan with him for some time and Rebecca Curtis is no fool when it comes to Stayers. I’m expecting to see a big run from him on his first start over fences and he’s definitely worth an each way pop here.
Over to Warwick and the focus here is another three-mile Handicap Chase, where Hot Rod Charlie holds obvious claims having won last time out in decent fashion. He won at Fontwell back in May on his first try over 2m 6f, the step up to three miles looks well within his reach and he won’t be far away.
However, my selection here is Kim Bailey’s Hurlerontheditch, who placed in all of his three starts at the beginning of the year. Although he had a few issues that caused him to miss 2022, with those three runs behind him I think it’s time for him to put his best foot forward. I believe Chasing was always going to be the plan for this horse and the Kim Bailey team are absolutely flying this season, so I think he’s a great bet.
My selection for Musselburgh comes in the two-mile Handicap Chase and there are some very likeable types in here. The bottom three in the weights all have the benefit of recent runs, which may mean they are the fittest of the five runners, but I think this will develop into a battle between the two top weights, Dreams Of Home and Fidelio Vallis.
Although Dreams Of Home has loads of pace and is a real big danger here, I can’t get away from Fidelio Vallis, who looks particularly well-handicapped on his best form. He had a run for his new connections back in February and he ran really well considering he was off the track for over 400 days. I think Harry Derham will have him absolutely primed for his first run of the season and that makes him the one to beat.
