Surge of bets for Keeper Hill to win the National Hunt Chase

The number of ante-post being placed at Oddschecker is increasing day-by-day and even with this flurry of bets, one particular gamble has stood out on Friday. 

A huge 72% of bets on the National Hunt Chase market today have been on Greatrex’s horse winning the National Hunt Chase. 

The seven-year-old fell four out when pushing Barney Dawn at Musselburgh last time out, but showed his class when winning a Novices’ Chase at Doncaster in December.

Warren Greatrex didn’t taste Cheltenham success last year, but punters believe he’ll fare a lot better in 2018.

Keeper Hill remains a 20/1 shot with two bookies on Oddschecker, however a sea of blue on the grids showcases the effect of the money coming for the horse. 

Blue indicates a price shortening on Oddschecker, and this has been the case with eight different firms, with the shortest price being 12/1.

Presenting Percy remains the 8/1 favourite, however these odds could narrow further following a win at Ascot this weekend. 

Since the start of December, Mall Dini has been the most backed in the market and remains a 10/1 second favourite.
