Bet On The 2013 Racing Plus Chase – Odds Overview

Nacarat winning in the Racing Plus Chase at Kempton ParkThe Racing Plus Chase takes places at Kempton Park Racecourse on Saturday, and with a field filled with talent it promises to offer much excitement. The bookies’ favourite at this stage seems to be Wyck Hill, who was bought by leading owner JP McManus earlier this week and the new owner will be eager to see whether his new investment pays off this in this GBP 100,000 event, which could further bolster the horse’s chances of taking up entries in the Cheltenham Gold Cup and the Grand National.

With Cheltenham now only a few weeks away, the form and results of this event could give an indication as to how things stand in view of the next major national hunt target, the John Smith’s Grand National.

This year’s field is a strong one, including a two-time former winner in the form of Nacarat (winner in 2009 and 2012) as well as last year’s runner up, Hector’s Choice.

Trainer David Bridgwater believes that Wyck Hill could develop into a Gold Cup contender. He has won in his last two outings, most recently beating Katenko, and it is this recent success which marks him out as favourite. Nacarat, now a veteran at 12 years old, hasn’t raced often recently, and is likely to have been prepared well for this outing. Also to be kept in mind is that the horse placed in both the 2010 and 2011 editions of the race, and presents an interesting each-way option.

Opening Batsman is being talked about as the value bet for this race. The novice has won two of his three races over fences, his only defeat coming against Rolling Aces, the bookies’ early second pick for this race. He is a good jumper, given his relative inexperience, and with a number of entries at Cheltenham, could be an enticing prospect at +800. Rolling Aces, meanwhile, has steadily been improving and it looks like he may have been saved for this race since his convincing winning performance at Wincanton on Boxing Day.

Roberto Goldback beat Duke Of Lucca in November, and shouldn’t be overlooked for this event either.

The race could be run on ground on the soft side of good after a drying week at Kempton. The race takes place at 16:15 CET/ 6:15 EST.

About The Race

The Racing Plus Chase was first run back in 1988 and was known as the Racing Post Chase until 2011. This handicap is run over a distance of 3 miles at Kempton Park racecourse. The contest is often described as another Grand National trial, with two horses – Rhyme ‘n’ Reason and Rough Quest – landing both races in the same season, while it could pay to know that both those horses also contested the Cheltenham Gold Cup that season.
