Today’s Horse Racing Odds: Thursday 24th February

There are five race meetings to take in across the UK and Ireland on Thursday, with a mixture of jumps action and all-weather racing to enjoy.

The action will get underway with the first of the all-weather meetings from Southwell where an eight-race card goes from 12:52-16:57, with the opener benefiting from Betfred’s ‘Free Bet if 2nd’ promotion, while the ‘Extra Place’ offer will be available for the Handicap at 15:12.

Huntingdon’s six-race jumps card goes between 13:00-15:55, with Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ offer coming into play for the finale from the Cambridgeshire track where course-specialist Lord Sparky (9/2) is expected to go well after he most recently won at the venue back in December.

Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion will also be available for two of the races that form part of Sedgefield’s seven-race card between 13:45-17:10, with the offer coming into play for the 15:30 Handicap Chase and the Handicap Hurdle at 16:05.

Thursday’s sole offering from Ireland will be the seven-race jumps card from Thurles that goes from 13:55-17:20, with the ‘Extra Place’ promotion from Betfred once again coming into play for the races 15:05 and 16:50.

The Grade 3 Novice Hurdle at 15:40 is also worth looking out for at Thurles, with Gatsby Grey (9/2) expected to go well for trainer Oliver McKiernan despite finding the Tattersalls Ireland Novice Hurdle understandably tough going on his most recent start at the Dublin Racing Festival.

The day’s action will then conclude back on UK soil with a six-race evening card on the all-weather at Newcastle from 17:30-20:00.

Again, there are plenty of promotions from Betfred to enjoy, with the opener benefiting from the ‘Free Bet if 2nd’ offer, the ‘Extra Place’ promotion coming into play for the Handicap at 19:00, while the ‘Super Extra Place’ offer, where they will be paying out on the first four places, will be available for the finale.
