Today’s Horse Racing Odds: Sunday 20th February

With Storm Eunice causing havoc across the UK and Ireland, there are just two meetings taking place this Sunday, with the action coming from Newbury and Musselburgh after Navan was cancelled.

An eight-race card was scheduled for Navan but heavy rain overnight has left parts of the course waterlogged and the decision was made to cancel the meeting after an inspection on Sunday morning.

That leaves two meetings to get stuck into in the UK, with Musselburgh’s seven-race offering up in Scotland getting proceedings underway from 13:35 until 17:00.

Betfred’s ‘Free Bet if 2nd’ promotion covers the 14:10, which Emirat De Catana and Lastofthecosmics are the joint 11/4 favourites to win, while there are extra places being paid out in the 14:15 and 15:20.

The 15:55, a Novices’ Handicap Hurdle set over 2m 3f 171yds, benefits from the Super Extra Place Race promotion and this promises to be a close battle in a 10-runner field, with Gemologist a non-runner.

Aazza finished second last time out, missing out on recording back-to-back victories, and Rose Dobbin’s charge is 9/2 to return to the winners’ circle, while Killane is the 7/2 favourite and Rickety Gate is 11/2 to triumph.

The second and final meeting of the day comes from Newbury and there are six races to take in, starting with the 13:55 and concluding with the 16:50.

There is an extra place being paid out in the 15:05 and there could be a big battle between Shakem Up’arry and Amarillo Sky, who are both priced at 11/4, while Dreams Of Home is priced at 6/1 and Not Available is 13/2.
