Vibrato Valtat Favourite For Kingmaker Novices Chase
The Paul Nicholls-trained Vibrato Valtat is the 11/10 favourite to win the Titanbet.co.uk Kingmaker Chase at Warwick on Saturday and the sponsor is offering money back on all fallers at Warwick.
There are seven races on the card and Titanbet will ensure punters are not left empty handed, should their selection fall, be brought down or unseat the jockey at the meeting.
Vibrato Valtat is a general 14/1 chance to win next month’s Racing Post Arkle (tipped at 20/1 by Alan Kelly) and Titanbet offer 25/1 to combine victory at tomorrow’s Grade 2 at Warwick with success at the 2015 Cheltenham Festival.
Titanbet spokesman Russell Yershon said: “Paul Nicholls’ Vibrato Valtat is a worthy favourite to continue on his upward curve, but Top Gamble is looking for a four-timer and shouldn’t be dismissed at 2/1.
“We’re thrilled to be sponsoring such a high-class card and, as well as being top-priced on the race, we are offering money-back on all fallers on the day.”
Such is the confidence in the Vibrato Valtat camp, that jockey Sam Twiston-Davies will miss the first half of Betfair Super Saturday at Newbury as he re-acquaints himself with the horse ahead of a tilt at the Arkle. In doing so, he’ll miss out on riding Unioniste in the Betfair Denman Chase, before making the dash to Newbury in a helicopter.
Top Gamble arrives on the back of a hat-trick having beaten Far West over course and distance in January and looks the main threat to the market leader, while Kings Lad goes up in grade having won well at Ascot and the remaining duo will need to improve greatly on recent performances to be involved at the business end.
