Betway Handicap Steeplechase: Tips, Predictions and Previews
Note: the tips below refer to the 2021 Grand National Festival; updated previews will be available on the week of the 2022 Festival.
Happygolucky was rather unfortunate to run into an inspired Vintage Clouds at Cheltenham and Kim Bailey’s charge certainly holds excellent claims of going a place better now. Top Notch (Plate, third) and Cloudy Glen (Kim Muir, second) were also seen to good effect last month but maybe things will be right here for HOLD THE NOTE – fourth in the Kim Muir. Mick Channon’s charge is better off on these terms with Happygolucky compared to their Cheltenham clash in December and promises to be suited by this flat track. He’s some each-way value under Tom Scudamore before his mount in the big event.
