REECE’S LONGSHOT | Thursday’s Each-Way Bet Of The Day at Cheltenham

A mare with interesting pedigree headlines the each-way selection on day two of Cheltenham’s April Meeting



Jeremy Scott
Petticoat Lucy– 5.00 Cheltenham (22/1 – William Hill + Sky Bet)

The Spreadex Sports Betting Mares’ Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race closes the April Meeting at Cheltenham, with a mare from Jeremy Scott’s yard holding some each-way value in the bumper.

Petticoat Lucy is yet to start under rules and she did fall on her sole point to point start in Ireland.

But what catches the eye with this mare is her pedigree, which could see the five-year-old thrive in her first bumper.

Scott’s new recruit is sired by five-time Group 1 winner Fame And Glory, who has produced several talented runners in the jumping sphere.

Ballyadam won one of his two starts in bumpers for Henry De Bromhead and finished second in the Supreme at Cheltenham

Embittered, Commander Of Fleet, Ballyadam and Soaring Glory are just a few to be named, with all four landing victories in bumpers in the early stages of their career.

Petticoat Lucy could be a surprise performer here at a big price of 22/1.
