View from the traders - Which horses BetVictor fear most this weekend

Racing Tips Staff 7 Feb 2019
Al Dancer will look to extend his unbeaten record in the Betfair Hurdle on Saturday.

We’ve spoken directly to the traders at BetVictor to find out which horses they fear most this weekend on Saturday and a big liability at the Cheltenham Festival.

Saturday marks one of the busiest afternoons in the racing calendar for punters and bookmakers, with mountains of cash set to be splashed on the ever-popular Betfair Hurdle. There’s also Grade Two action on the card at Newbury, as several Gold Cup hopefuls collide in the Denman Chase.

We’ve spoken with the traders at BetVictor and they revealed that Nigel Twiston-Davies’ Betfair Hurdle contender, Al Dancer is the horse they fear most on Saturday afternoon.

"Al Dancer was very well backed with us in early January when sitting around 10/1. He's our 7/2 favourite now and will certainly be our biggest liability this weekend."

"Getaway Trump (9/2) has also been well supported with us and would be the second worst scenario. Samburu Shujaa (9/2) has been heavily supported in the Betfair Bet-In Play Handicap Hurdle."

When asked who they fancied would come out on top in the Denman Chase, BetVictor sided with defending champion Native River.

"We much prefer Native River (4/5) over Clan Des Obeaux (13/8) in the Denman Chase. He has to be our NAP of the weekend!!"

BetVictor's traders then revealed there had been a huge wave of support for Fakir D'Oudairies in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle betting at Cheltenham.

"We are now paying an extra place in the Champion Hurdle, the Stayers' Hurdle, the Gold Cup, the Ballymore and the Supreme Novices' Hurdle and we have seen plenty of each-way bets on those races. Interestingly, juvenile Fakir D'Oudairies (8/1) was well-backed on Monday for the Supreme, so it looks like he goes there."

An easy winner of the Triumph Trial on Trials Day, the Triumph would be the obvious option for Joseph O'Brien's juvenile. However, after Sir Erec hacked up in the Spring Juvenile at the Dublin Racing Festival, O'Brien and his team seem to have decided to split up their two top youngsters, with Fakir D'Audairies set to take on his elders in the Supreme.
