Today’s Best Horse Racing Bets: Friday, December 6

1.30 Exeter

KATESON showed progressive form over hurdles last term, winning in starts at Chepstow and Newbury respectively following some strong performances in bumpers which included a Grade Two contest at Aintree.

Tom Lacey’s charge subsequently ran with credit in defeat when denied his hat-trick attempt behind Champ in the Challow Hurdle, and three miles possibly stretched him when tried in the Prestige Novices’ Hurdle next time.

The Great Pretender gelding was disappointing again when rounding off his campaign behind Reserve Tank in the Mersey Novices’ Hurdle; but he shaped better on his reappearance over hurdles at Haydock last month and should come on for that effort where this softer ground will be more in his favour than the quicker conditions he has been contesting in in his last few outings.

He appeared to need that first outing of the campaign, making some tired late mistakes; but he should strip fitter and may be capable of making a winning transition to chasing now with these conditions more favourable.
