Le Beau Bai has been the main market mover this afternoon ahead of the totesport.com Classic Chase and Totesport have cut Richard Lee’s gelding to 8/1 co-favourite (from 12/1) alongside Richard’s Sundance and West End Rocker.
The eight-year-old ran a cracker over hurdles on his reappearance at Exeter and was last seen when running down the field at Cheltenham when the ground would have been too lively.
“Le Beau Bai is a confirmed mudlark and the fact that conditions are likely to be testing at Warwick has not been lost on punters who have been piling on Richard Lee’s gelding over the past twenty-four hours,” said totesport spokesman George Primarolo.
Midnight Chase has also been popular with punters since the entries for the totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup were announced this afternoon and the sponsors have been forced to cut the Cheltenham specialist to 20/1 (from 25/1).
Over at Doncaster this afternoon, Local Hero landed the Atteys Solicitors Juvenile Hurdle Race with the minimum of fuss and has been introduced into the betting for the Triumph Hurdle at 33/1 by totesport
