Trainer Elliott is one to watch

December 13, 2012 08:47:07 UK

Irish trainer Gordon Elliott is a man who has emerged as a real punter's pal over the last few years.

He is slowly climbing towards the top of his profession but - sitting just outside the top bracket - his horses often run at longer odds than would or should be available in other circumstances.

He's a regular visitor to the mainland and can be found from the humblest seller at Leicester - as was the plan with Oscar Hill yesterday until the card was abandoned.

The two big horses we have are Don Cossack and Mount Benbulben and, if they do well this season, it would be great.

So what looked like a sure-fire winner was lost but there will undoubtedly be other opportunities from one of the cutest yards around.

Speaking to At the Races during a stable visit, Elliott explained: "We have more young horses than ever before - probably 70 per cent - where before it was usually the other way around.

"The two big horses we have are Don Cossack and Mount Benbulben and, if they do well this season, it would be great, but we have an awful lot of nice young horses for the season - more so than ever before - so you just never know what'll be in them."

He's a great believer in finding races - wherever they may be - to suit every inmate from the all-weather at Dundalk or Wolverhampton, a point-to-point in the most northern part of Ireland or even Perth and Punchestown.

It's often a yard that is overlooked particularly on a Saturday afternoon when Noel Meades and Willie Mullins and dominating the scene across the water, but Elliott's is very much a yard to keep in mind.

Cue Card is 6.00 to win the King George VI Chase on Boxing Day while Finian's Rainbow can be backed at 1000.00 and Kauto Stone at 8.00.

Don't forget all of the fantastic markets we have to offer, including In-Play betting, can be accessed on your mobile phone and tablet with the new and improved bet365 On The Move.
