Betting Tip: Shubaat @ 13/2 with bet365

The Chepstow Jumps Festival which heralds the start of the jumps season proper continues this afternoon with an eight race card.

The 2m7f novice chase (2.45pm) has attracted a field of seven and all are making their seasonal reappearances, so we are guessing over their fitness. They include Beast Of Burden, a dual winner over hurdles for Rebecca Curtis last season who went off as short as 8/1 for the Neptune Novices’, and Paul Nicholls’ It’s A Close Call, who won two of his three starts last term, but I’d rather back SHUBAAT against them.

John Ferguson’s charge is the joint oldest runner at eight, but he has relatively few miles on the clock and was unbeaten in three starts over hurdles last season, culminating in a seven-length defeat of the hat-trick seeking Masterofdeception in a handicap over three miles at Southwell. That’s solid form but he has always looked more of a chaser and could reach even greater heights in this sphere. With his stable still firing on all cylinders after a golden run over the summer, he represents value at 13/2.
