Betting Tip: Chosen Well @ 7/1 with bet365

These days it’s far less if a worry if a horse is returning after a break as training techniques have improved and, indeed, first time out is often the best time to catch some horses. I’m hoping that is the case with the second bet, the Alan King-trained CHOSEN WELL, as the race he reappears in looks ultra competitive. The bet365 Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase (2.45pm) features a whole host of potentially well-handicapped novice chasers, which includes the selection of course

The winner of an Irish point-to-point, he won his first two hurdle starts last season, only for the wheels to come off in two subsequent runs. However, an excuse came to light and King, who has long considered him to be a stayer chaser in the making and had his wind ‘tidied up’ a few weeks ago, is hopeful that will allow him to finish off his races better. This is a stiff introduction for the six-year-old but the fact he’s running here rather than in a small novice somewhere is a tip in itself and the stable does have a 1-3 strike rate with chase debutants in handicaps since 2010, landing this very race 12 months ago with a similar type.
