2022 Ascot Chase Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Saturday, 19 February 2022

We’re getting into the nuts and bolts of the National Hunt season and this is one of the last big horse races before the 2022 Cheltenham Festival betting extravaganza commences. The Ascot racecard throws up the 2022 Betfair Ascot Chase and it’s worth comparing the horse racing betting odds and finding the biggest price about the selection that you want to back.

We might see the Cheltenham Gold Cup betting odds affected by the winner of this race, with Saint Calvados heading the betting and Paul Nicholls has enjoyed plenty of success in this encounter. We might also see Mister Fisher have the stamina to run a big race and we have Betfair Chase betting tips available for the big showdown.

2022 Ascot Chase Betting Tips

Before we get to the Cheltenham Festival betting tips, let’s focus on the Ascot Chase which takes place on Saturday 19 February. This is a race sponsored by one of the leading racing betting sites, with Betfair worth checking out considering that you can choose between fixed odds or exchange betting when it comes to this leading betting site.

Saint Calvados is the betting favourite, with the nine-year-old having outrun his King George VI Chase betting odds, having been sent off at 25/1 at Kempton Racecourse before finishing third behind surprise winner Tornado Flyer and Clan Des Obeaux. This was over three miles at Kempton Park racecourse and it was on soft ground so we have to consider this experienced horse for this encounter.

Mister Fisher is also among the popular Betfair Chase betting tips, with Nicky Henderson training this eight-year-old and there was a remarkable victory in the Coral Silviniaco Conti Chase, with the horse being sent off as the 15/8 betting favourite.

Jockey James Bowen was on board a runner that got the better of Eldorado Allen and there could be more to come. Mister Fisher was previously pulled up in the King George VI Chase and there are question marks when you look at the number of races that the horse has failed to win.

First Flow was the winner of the 2021 Ascot Chase, with Kim Bailey hoping that his ten-year-old can return to Ascot racecourse and repeat the performance of twelve months ago. Many Ascot Chase betting tips will include this runner on an each-way basis, with the horse most recently getting an outing when finishing well behind the high class Shishkin and Energumene.

Previously to this, there was an impressive turn of foot when the horse claimed the spoils in the Fitzdares Peterborough Chase, with jockey David Bass on board a runner that was sent off at 12/1 and there were a number of leading horses in that field which gives us an Ascot betting tip and we wouldn’t be against the idea of backing First Flow.


Cyrname Favourite to Win Ascot Chase Despite Recent Hiccup

Cyrname won the Betfair Ascot Chase in 2019 as a seven-year-old and the horse will return to the Berkshire track two years later to compete in the same race, with the Paul Nicholls-trained charge having then lowered the colours of the legendary Altior in November 2019, although the horse fell in last year’s Ascot Chase in 2020 when being sent off as strong favourite.

The horse bounced back by winning the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby although he was then pulled up in the King George VI Chase on Boxing Day and there’s certainly an erratic nature about the horse which might put certain punters off.

Paul Nicholls Trains First Three in Ascot Chase Betting

Master Tommytucker comes next in the Ascot Chase betting and there is plenty to recommend another Paul Nicholls runner who has run five times already this season and scored a victory on three occasions.

The ten-year-old finished well down the pecking order in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup Handicap Chase in December, although a triumph in the Ladbrokes Silviniaco Conti Chase in January implies the horse is in good condition for this race which will be run in similar conditions and over the same distance.

Nicholls could arrive for this race with lots of lively chances and this includes Clan Des Obeaux and this horse finished second to Bristol De Mai in the Betfair Chase earlier this season before being sent off as favourite to win the King George before managing to only land third spot.

Ascot Chase Betting Market Looks Wide Open

If you’re looking for a horse not trained by Paul Nicholls, there are plenty of lively chances and this includes Saint Calvados who will run for lesser-known trainer Harry Whittington, with the eight-year-old landing a creditable fourth place in the King George back in December and that came after a lengthy break when the runner was narrowly beaten by Min in the Ryanair Chase at last year’s Cheltenham Festival.

Mister Fisher runs for trainer Nicky Henderson and his last three outings have been at Cheltenham Racecourse, with the horse finishing fourth in the Marsh Novices' Chase, with the horse then pulled up in the Paddy Power Gold Cup and the runner bounced back when winning the Peterborough Chase.
