What horse should I bet on today with my Ultima Handicap Chase Free Bet?
In this extremely large field of 41 runners and riders, we think an upset could be on the cards and one of the outsiders could capture the victory.
That being said, we believe Rapper has a great chance of having a good go at the Ultima Handicap Chase, at a magnificent price of 25/1 with William Hill. Having won on his last two chase outings, this Henry Daly trained 8-year-old is in great form and sits at a tidy 10st 5lb mark. He is rated at 143, which is in and around the same rating as the majority of previous winners of this race.
Rapper will certainly have a major say if he jumps, rallies and runs on like he did at Wincanton and Catterick in his last two chase starts. Massive price and a talented horse.
