2023 Foxhunters Chase Betting Odds at Aintree racecourse

Thursday, 13 April 2023

The Grand National meeting features many eye-catching races including the Foxhunters' Open Hunters' Chase, with a maximum of thirty runners lining up and this is an encounter where there are often extra places for each-way backers. Winged Leader has been out of action for over a year but trades as favourite to win this encounter.

Famous Clermont has run more recently and could be a popular each-way selection, while Latenightpass and Fier Jaguen are other runners who have been off the track for a considerable time, with Vaucelet and Magic Saint the other horses who are trading as the favourites for a heat where there are extra places up for grabs.

2023 Foxhunters' Open Hunters' Chase Tips

Several of the favourites to win the 2023 Foxhunters' Open Hunters' Chase have actually been out of action for over a year, with punters having to weigh up whether to side with these runners compared to the horses who turned out at the recent Cheltenham Festival. Winged Leader is clearly a talented sort but it’s been a long lay-off for this particular runner.

The nine-year-old has obliged in a couple of recent point-to-point encounters although his last proper race was at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival where the horse finished second to Billaway. A bit of educated guesswork is required to establish whether that performance in the St. James's Place Festival Challenge Cup Open Hunters' Chase can be repeated.

Famous Clermont was sixth in the running of the 2023 renewal, with the horse having run fairly impressively to run into the place money on that occasion. Vaucelet was a place behind and will take his chances at Aintree Racecourse after being sent off as the 9/4 favourite for that Cheltenham race only to end up falling short for backers.

Magic Saint might be the best bet in the race and the Paul Nicholls-trained horse swerved Cheltenham altogether after claiming an early March victory at Wincanton. It was a comfortable thirteen-length win on that occasion when overcoming Diligent and we might expect more for a trainer who appears to have his horses bang in form.


2022 Foxhunters Chase Tips

The big question is whether Winged Leader will have suitably recovered from that gruelling run at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival, with this horse among the many entries who lined up last month, although this horse looks to have serious claims. The top horse racing betting sites certainly respect the eight-year-old’s chances.

Trainer Christie claimed that the runner had come out of his Cheltenham race well and he put on a tremendous show of jumping at Prestbury Park, with the handler exclaiming: “We’ll enter him at Aintree and we’ll see how the next week or so goes. We won’t do too much with him and let him recover.

“In an ideal world you’d love Aintree being another week further back, but he is a strong horse. We’re keeping all options open at this moment in time.”

Jett Could Be a Strong Contender in Foxhunters

Jett is at the higher end of the age scale, with the Robert Waley-Cohen-trained charge looking to land the spoils for a trainer who has previously tasted success in this race with Katarino who won the race in 2005 and 2006. There are certainly no problems for eleven-year-olds winning considering that On The Fringe, Dineur and Balnaslow have been recent winners.

Jett finished eighth in last year’s Grand National after being sent off at a massive 80/1 and that run was eye-catching considering some of the horses that he beat. The horse jumped well and actually led the race at one stage and it was no disgrace that several runners overhauled him at the end of the race.

Bob And Co could be another interesting runner, with Paul Nicholls the trainer and this handler is looking to secure the trainer’s championship. There have been question marks over his jumping and the latest episode came at Cheltenham where the horse fell, although there’s no doubting his pedigree if he stays on his feet.


Who Are the 2021 Foxhunters’ Chase Betting Favourites?

The Foxhunters’ Chase looks to be one of the most open betting races on the Aintree racecard this year, with Billaway trading as the betting favourite with some racing bookies and the horse ran a blinder when losing by a short head in the St. James's Place Festival Challenge Cup Open Hunters' Chase at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival.

You can get horse racing betting odds of around 7/2 that the Willie Mullins’ horse goes one better in the Foxhunters’, with the horse having finished in the first two places when it comes to all four of his runs this season, beating Staker Wallace into first place when obliging in the Naas Hunters Chase at the end of January.

Cat Tiger is an interesting runner and the leading bookmaker websites clearly respect the Paul Nicholls horse despite having run just once since being pulled up in the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival, with the horse obliging as favourite in a rather uncomplicated Hunters’ Chase at Leicester.

What are the Best Horse Racing Tips for the Foxhunters’?

Many of the betting sites have excellent each-way betting terms when it comes to some of these big Aintree races and that means that punters could be interested in Bob And Co, with the horse available at a best price 7/1 which is a good each-way price and our betting tip would be to consider a runner who unseated his rider in the recent St. James's Place Festival Challenge Cup Open Hunters' Chase.

Bob And Co recently won a Hunters’ Chase at Haydock and has to be respected when it comes to the betting market, while Caid Du Berlais has only run once this season although the twelve-year-old won over two miles and four furlongs and has clearly been aimed at challenging for this race.

If you check out the Foxhunters Chase horse racing betting odds, then Some Man, Jury Duty and Sametegal are among the racing betting favourites on the Aintree racecard and you can place an each-way bet on any of these horses and get a favourable return should any of the horses finish in the frame.

Some Man won the Bluegrass Horse Feeds Hunters Chase in the middle of March at Down Royal, with Jury Duty another horse trading at similar betting odds and the ten-year-old won a Hunters Chase over three miles and one furlong, with Denise Foster training this horse and he has a good pedigree.

Sametegal has decent each-way betting claims and the twelve-year-old has plenty of experience under his belt, with trainer Paul Nicholls having seen this horse beat Porlock Bay who went on to win at the Cheltenham Festival.
