1.30pm – Turners Novices' Chase (Grade 1, 2m4f)

Hype horses Facile Vega and Grey Dawning are respected, but there is just as much substance to GINNY'S DESTINY, who has been bossing it around Cheltenham all season. He won a handicap in good style from a mark of 147 last time, which closely mirrors how last year's winner Stage Star, also trained by Paul Nicholls, came into the race.

Selection: Ginny's Destiny

Understanding the Turners Novices' Chase

It was first run in 2011 and has been a plaything of Irish trainers and racehorses ever since. A team from the Emerald Isle has won all but three renewal editions since its inception.

The horse's age, physical condition, and previous experience are essential to predicting the race outcome. Get the most precise picture by taking your race research seriously ahead of the starter's call.

Top Turners Novices' Chase Contenders

Fact to File sits as the heavy favourite coming into the race after wins in Leopardstown in December and February. Last time out at Cheltenham, Fact to File was the favourite but fell short, finishing second in the Champion Bumper behind the horse - a Dream to Share. Worth noting that in it's last race, Fact to File came into the race as the second favourite in a two horse race against Gaelic Warrior and won after several mistakes from the opposition horse, the final of which saw Paul Townend unseated.

We think the main competitor for Fact to File here will be Ginny's Destiny. Whose last four runs have come at the Cheltenham racecourse. A poor performance in October has been followed up by three victories on the course in a row, including a win against second favourite Grey Dawning.

Turners Novices' Chase Betting Tips

Follow your Turners Novices' Chase betting tips by following through with a few of them, outlined below:

Win Bet Back the selection you think will cross the finishing post first. You receive a payout if the chosen horse wins but do not receive anything should the horse finish second or worse.

Each Way Bet An Each Way bet is a popular horse racing bet that provides insurance against losing your entire stake. It consists of two parts: a win and a place portion. The win portion pays out if your selected horse finishes first, and the place portion pays out if your chosen horse finishes first or within the top places defined pre-race.

Place Bet There are a variety of strategies that can be employed when betting on horse racing, however, the most successful and commonly used methods include:

Research Doing your homework is critical if you want to be successful at betting on horses. Studying form, understanding the conditions of each race and researching the horses' past performances are all crucial components of research before making any bets.

Favourites and Value Betting on the favourite is not always the best option in horse racing, which is why experienced punters often look for value in horses with longer odds. Try to find a balance between betting on favourites to ensure you have enough chances of success whilst still looking for value by backing horses with longer odds.

Money Management Always setting limits for how much money you are willing to bet at any one time is integral to money management. Allocating funds appropriately, understanding your tolerance for risk and developing a budget are all essential to successful horse racing betting.

Factors to Consider When Placing a Bet In addition to researching the form of each horse taking part in a race and its past performance, certain other elements should be considered before placing a bet on horse racing. These include studying the track conditions, analysing the jockey's performance, looking at the odds and more.

Ground Conditions Track condition is one of the essential elements to consider before placing a bet. Different tracks have different surfaces, and some courses may suit certain types of horses while hindering others. That's why it could pay to watch out for weather conditions ahead of the festival. The wetter it is, the more it will suit horses with stamina, while the drier it is, the likelier it is to suit speedsters.

Horse Handicap How fairly has the handicapper been at the weights? If you feel your selection has been unfairly punished at the weights, it could be worth steering clear. Likewise, if you think a horse has got away with punishment from the handicapper and is light at the weights, you could identify value.

Jockey's Riding Style The jockey's performance should also be taken into account. An experienced and capable jockey can make the difference between success and failure. It is, therefore, essential to keep up with the latest news on the jockeys, their previous performances, and any other relevant information that could impact their current race.
