Hunter Chase - 4.20 Listowel

Recommended Posts

Regular readers will know I rarely tip up in Irish Hunter Chases and have only put up two this season, both of which have won. Hopefully I can make it a hat-trick on what will be the final bet of the season. It would be great if On The Fringe can win this race for a 2nd year running on what surely will be his final ever race, although given I have been saying for at least 2 years that they should retire him maybe it wont be. As well as he ran last time, I don't think he will win this however as I really like Rewritetherules who is 9 years younger than On The Fringe. He didn't really look like he was up to much until he was a massive gamble to win a Down Royal Hunter Chase at the beginning of last month. He was an impressive winner that day and then 3 days later he went to Tipperary and was even more impressive. Talk after that win was that he would go to Stratford for the John Corbet Cup and he was entered at the 6 day decs, but they obviously decided to stay in Ireland and go for this instead. He looks a promising horse and his trainer has spoken very highly of him. In my view he should be favourite for this and I would be surprised if he didn't start favourite.

There doesn't look to be a lot else in the race. All Hell Let Loose has been running consistently well in points this season, but keeps finishing 2nd. Flirting Lesa won the Bishopscourt Cup at the Punchestown Festival, but that is always a very weak affair. So at 5/2 hopefully we can end the season with a winner.

Rewritetherules 2pts @ 5/2 with Bet365

Great to see him win again and it might not even be his last run. I thought they would retire him on the spot but that didn't happen. He made his debut a couple of days before his 5th birthday and won the Punchestown Champion Hunter Chase for the 1st time when he was 5. To still be winning races 9 years later is some feat.
