2023 Aintree Bowl Chase Betting Odds at Aintree racecourse

Thursday, 13 April 2023

The 2023 Betway Bowl looks set to be highly competitive, with some star quality horses set to compete over three miles and 210 yards. At present, the bookmakers have a number of runners trading at short prices. Shishkin is the race favourite with some horse racing betting sites, although the Nicky Henderson-trained runner has proved inconsistent.

Shishkin fell short in the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, with Conflated running in the Gigginstown colours, with Ahoy Senor and Bravemansgame also trading at short prices although there are multiple entries. A Plus Tard, Protektorat and Envoi Allen are the other horses who could make an impression at Aintree Racecourse.

2023 Aintree Bowl Chase Tips

Clan Des Obeaux has achieved consecutive successes in the Aintree Bowl Chase over the past two years, although the baton will be passed to another horse this time around. Shishkin is likely to run over a longer distance than the Ryanair Chase and perhaps this will bring things more into his favour after being beaten by Envoi Allen at Cheltenham.

It’s hard to trust Shishkin at short prices considering punters have had their fingers burnt too many times backing the Henderson runner, with Conflated having run well in the Cheltenham Gold Cup when finishing third at a big price and trainer Gordon Elliott will feel confident this charge has a cracking chance here.

Perhaps Conflated shouldn’t have been underestimated by the bookies considering his impressive Leopardstown performance when winning the Savills Chase, with this Grade One encounter over the festive period seeing the runner impress over three miles on soft ground. It certainly looks to be a better option than Shiskhin.

Ahoy Senor and Bravemansgame are also trading at a similar price, with the former having fallen in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, while the latter was really impressive when putting it up to Galopin Des Champs before finishing narrowly second. A Plus Tard should also be considered when you reflect on the horse’s previous achievements for Henry de Bromhead.
