Eider Chase Betting Tips

The 2019 Eider Chase betting tips given by Betting.org experts say the unexposed Just Your Type is the value punt to land the 4m feature contest at Newcastle on Saturday, 23 February. Vicente is back down to his last winning mark and represents the in-form Paul Nicholls, so is feared most. Crosspark, meanwhile, looks a lively outsider and appeals each-way in a wide-open renewal. Full details about these horses’ chances can be found in our 2019 Eider Chase betting tips preview below.

Just Your Type ticks plenty of boxes in Eider Chase

Just Your Type looks potentially ahead of his mark and decent value to land the spoils in the feature race at Newcastle on Saturday, the 4m Eider Handicap Chase (14:40). This Charlie Longsdon trained seven-year-old is a lightly-raced and unexposed sort who has shaped with plenty of promise in three starts over fences this season.

In the first of those at Ffos Las, the son of Morozov raced prominently throughout until being unable to find any extra approaching the last to finish a seven-length fourth of nine to Albert Bartlett winner Kilbricken Storm – who is currently rated 152 over fences. The third home Steely Addition, whom he beat 3 3/4 lengths, also went on to win next time up on handicap debut off 137 and is now rated 150.

Has scope for plenty more progress

That gives the form a solid look and suggests that Just Your Type’s current mark of 123 could seriously underestimate his ability, given that he met those rivals on level weights. He was then far from disgraced when fifth of 11 to Chosen Path on handicap debut at Newbury, where he finished 12 lengths behind the third home Mister Malarky, who is unbeaten in two starts since and landed a Grade 2 at Ascot last time out to be rated 148.

That makes the form read well in the context of this contest, and Just The Type was all set to make a winning debut over the obstacles at Exeter last month when coming to grief two from home. He was six lengths clear and well in command, so had he stood up the handicapper would have put him up at least 7lb.

So, off an unchanged mark, Just The Type looks potentially ahead of the assessor and – judged on his aforementioned run behind Kilbricken Storm – could be thrown-in at the weights. After just six starts under rules he is also open to more progression than any of his rivals. It makes Just Your Type a fascinating contender in this and he thus features as the main selection in our 2019 Eider Chase betting tips.

Vicente weighted to go well

The market is headed by Vicente, a classy stayer who is back down to his last winning mark. This 10-year-old hails from the in-form yard of Paul Nicholls and has won seven of his 28 starts over fences. He enjoyed his finest hour when landing the 2017 running of the Scottish Grand National at Ayr in game fashion by a neck from Cogry off a rating of 146.

Vicente has been lightly-raced since and failed to get his head in front in sx starts, but has posted some solid efforts in defeat. They include when runner-up at Cheltenham off 150 and when a 9 3/4 lengths third to Royal Vacation in the Portman Cup last time out at Taunton.

The son of Dom Laco raced with plenty of enthusiasm in the latter until being unable to find any extra approaching the second last. It was a highly promising return to action following a 63-day break that should have blown away the cobwebs and put him spot on for this.

Having since also been eased a pound in the weights, Vicente is now able to race off 146 again and that gives him major claims from a handicapping perspective on the pick of his form. The forecast drying ground is also in his favour, while another plus is he has the services of the highly talented Sean Bowen in the saddle.

Taking everything into account then, Vicente’s claims look obvious. He looks sure to go well and stamina is not an issue, so he therefore rates the main danger to Just Your Type in these Eider Chase betting tips.

Crosspark looks a lively outsider

Of those at bigger odds, the Caroline Bailey trained Crosspark looks a lively outsider and each-way value. The nine-year-old looked better than ever when winning his first two starts this season, before posting a below par effort when a well-beaten fifth of eight to Lake View Lad in the Grade 3 Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase at Wetherby.

Crosspark was never travelling at any stage, but showed that running to be all wrong last time out when a fine third of 12 to Impulsive Star in the Grade 3 Classic Chase over 3m 5f at Warwick. After racing towards the rear, the son of Midnight Legend made stealthy headway to hold every chance three from home.

He then got slightly outpaced, but stayed on gamely after the last to be beaten 5 1/2 lengths. It was a fine effort in defeat and once which suggested the extra three furlongs of this should be right up his street.

Crosspark is also able to race off an unchanged mark of 135, 1lb lower than when a decent fourth in the 2018 running of the Classic Chase. It gives him every chance at the weights; so, with underfoot conditions also ideal, he features as the each-way punt and completes our 2019 Eider Chase betting tips.
