2022 Foxhunters Chase Betting Odds at Aintree racecourse

Thursday, 07 April 2022

Winged Leader is a worthy antepost betting favourite to win the Foxhunters’ Chase, with David Christie the little-known trainer of a horse who was desperately close to winning the St. James's Place Festival Challenge Cup Open Hunters' Chase at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival, with the horse now looking to go one better.

The eight-year-old ran a blinder at Prestbury Park only to be touched off by Billaway on the big uphill finish, with Winged Leader losing by a neck and the horse had previously beaten this opponent at Thurles, with the connections feeling confident of a big run.

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.
