REECE’S LONGSHOT | 9th October @ Chepstow: Saturday’s Each-Way Bet

An interesting gelding makes the cut for the each-way selection at Chepstow

Hooper – 3:30 Chepstow (16/1 – bet365)

Hailing from Nicky Henderson’s yard, Hooper makes his return to handicaps in the Silver Trophy Handicap Hurdle at Chepstow.

The gelding was sent novice chasing over the summer but it didn’t go to plan, after unseating his rider on his first start over fences and failing to strike in a small field on his next start.

Could Hooper strike for Nicky Henderson?

He is revered back to the smaller obstacles here and faces a tough assignment as well as being 7lbs higher than his last winning mark.

The five-year-old does have a 7lb claimer in the saddle, which could help him here.

At the price of 16/1, Hooper could be one to note in this contest.
