Elliott Duo Share Thyestes Chase Favouritism

Thyestes Chase

Outright Betting

Gordon Elliott’s bid to break his duck in the Thyestes Chase has been boosted after Out Sam was gambled in from 10/1 to 5/1 joint favourite ahead of Thursday’s big race.

Leading British conditional jockey James Bowen, who became the youngest jockey to win the Welsh Grand National this month, has been booked to ride the 9 year-old who last ran behind Anibale Fly at the Leopardstown Christmas meeting.

Ucello Conti, who was second behind Anibale Fly in the same race, shares favouritism with Out Sam at 5/1, meaning…

…Elliott can lay claim to both market leaders in a race that has so far eluded his CV.

Noel Meade’s A Genie In Abottle is the nearest competitor in the betting to Elliott’s pair at 6/1.

Call The Taxie was one of our biggest movers this week for the Thyestes and we had to cut him into 8/1 after receiving some chunky bets at 14/1 when the market went up on Monday so it’ll be interesting to see what he goes off at.
