Summer Jumps Betting Pointers + 24.95/1 Treble!

Warwick Racecourse

The start of summer is just a month away, and at present, most racing fans have thoughts of the Epsom Classics, Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood in mind. For those who prefer the National Hunt game, however, this can be a sobering time of year.

The ever-evolving ‘Summer Jumps’ meetings now provide punters with plenty of betting opportunities though, and this article will run through some of the main pointers to consider before placing any bets, including a 24.95/1 treble for tomorrow’s meeting at Warwick. Read our views on all the action in our horse racing tips section.

Stable Form At This Time Of Year Often Crucial

Although it could be argued that stable form always needs looking at whatever time of year, this is often more prevalent with the so-called ‘lesser yards’, who will try and get as many winners on the board as possible when their horses are in form. Trainers will also target the early part of the jumps season, where the racing is often less competitive than usual.

Making Hay While The Sun Shines

With many jumpers currently on their holidays, those that notch a win often face less competition than normal when bidding to follow-up. This can result in horses racking up a sequence of wins and progressing through the handicap ranks at an exponential rate.

Don’t Ignore Flat Form

Although not all horses that switch from the flat to hurdles improve, it is worth paying particular attention to those that do so during the summer, as they are bred to be effective at this time of year, and more often than not get their favoured good ground conditions.

Yccs Portocervo – 2.20 Warwick

Dr Richard Newland invariably does well with his new recruits, and this four-year-old bought out of Guy Cherel’s yard for €28,000 in November appears to hold strong claims today. The yard is currently operating at a 30% strike-rate with their runners in the past fortnight, and since 2009, they have been +25.61 to a £1 stake in the month of May.

Kereman – 2.55 Warwick

An archetypal Dan Skelton handicapper, this gelding has won all three of his starts since returning from a 552-day absence. The assessor has raised him thirteen pounds for his latest success, and he is up in grade today, but he looks open to more improvement than most of these rivals so is backed to land the four-timer.

Not Never – 3.55 Warwick

Gary Moore’s seven-year-old has won three of his last four starts over hurdles, his latest success coming in a handicap hurdle at Fontwell in January. He is now running off a career-high hurdles mark, but being rated 95 on the flat, could have further improvement to come in this sphere.

Putting Yccs Portocervo, Kereman and Not Never in a treble pays 24.95/1 with BetVictor, which is the best price at the time of writing.
