Simon Rowlands: Five ante-post bets for the jumps season
Simon Rowlands uses a data-driven approach to identify five jumps horses worth backing ante-post for the Cheltenham Festival.
A jumps season ante-post preview becomes a de-facto Cheltenham Festival ante-post preview unless you want to have a stab at the Betfair Chase, King George VI Chase, or, even tougher, the Grand National.
One or two mentioned below will be of interest for the first two of those races, if probably not the last-named, but who knows what those horses’ states of readiness will be in November and December?
The “all-roads-lead-to-Cheltenham” narrative, which sometimes works to the detriment of the jumps season overall, is something of a God-send for anyone trying long-range forecasting. If your horse is Cheltenham standard it is likely to turn up at Prestbury Park in March. Though not always in the “right” race!
