Betting - Tracked Horses Strategy - #3 - Bear Ghylls

Hi sports fans, and sports bettors.

Our last selection Dual Identity again went close but not close enough to give us our first winner from my list of horses to follow, finishing in third place just over 4 lengths behind the winner Turntable, but still showing plenty of potential that his last win in July landed him on the radar of the tipster who gave the one to follow tip.

Today our one to follow is Bear Ghylls, a brown gelding, who boasts a record of 3 wins from 4 starts over hurdles, and a win over NH fences from his only start over those obstacles. His last outing was, however, way back in March, 2021, so probably needs this trip to blow away the competitive cobwebs.

Once again Rendlesham Racing picked this one as one to follow recently and this is what they said about Bear Ghylls this time in the Tipsters Empire NH Horses to follow email with each of their tipsters picking 5 horses for the NH season.

Bear Ghylls Trainer - Nicky Martin
Nicky Martin’s 7yr old is still very lightly raced having only had 5 career starts after sitting out last season through injury, but made huge impressions two seasons back when going hurdling. He got off the mark at first attempt, winning a maiden over 2m3f at Lingfield by nearly 5L. He followed up at a very short price at Ffos Las before making his handicap debut at Exeter over 2m2f. He got the better of Stormy Flight by 5L, off a mark of 130 and he looked a very smart horse. He was pitched in at the deep end in his last run of the 2020/21 season when running in the Ballymore Novices Hurdle (grade 1) at Cheltenham. He was far from disgraced in finishing 4th there, albeit beaten over 12L by Bob Olinger but was bang in with a chance jumping 4 from home until making errors at the next two which ended his chances (he did start to stay on again after the last). There is plenty of excitement around the yard for this season with this horse who will be going chasing and looks built for it. He’s reportedly been schooling impressively over the summer and he’s been described as a “machine” by those that have ridden him. He’s certainly one to follow this season with the rumor that the Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase at Cheltenham is the target for him; he’s currently 50/1 in places for that.

Was in two minds whether to go for this as it is in the same race as a selection i have for my other strategy. In the end i figured better to have a second selection in the mix. And I used my other bookie as well, might get lucky one way or the other ... lol

Good luck to all if you take this on, and let me know how you do.
