2024 bet365 Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Saturday, 20 January 2024

A maximum of eighteen runners go to post for a two mile five furlong encounter at Ascot Racecourse. They will encounter seventeen obstacles on soft ground, with this sure to be a stamina-sapping encounter and perhaps Ga Law can finish in the frame. The seven-year-old now has a spate of strong performances under his belt and looks to be each-way value.

However, the plain truth is that any number of horses can land a victory and Phoenix Way is carrying less weight on his back. Harry Fry will hope that the horse can benefit from the handicapper, while Dusart is a talented horse that is entered. Danny Kirwan could go well for trainer Paul Nicholls at a bigger price.

Ga Law heads the betting market to win the 2023 Bet365 Handicap Chase and perhaps a repeat of his performance at Cheltenham last November might be enough to land a victory for trainer Jamie Snowden. On that occasion, the horse triumphed by two miles and four furlongs and we should see a respectable showing from a runner who is capable of making further progress in his career.

Phoenix Way finished fourth on his last outing and the ten-year-old ran a solid race at Chepstow, with the horse performing well over two miles, three-and-a-half furlongs and this could be another each-way contender. Let’s not forget that this runner was the winner of this race last season and has the course and distance.

Fanion D’Estruval was second on that occasion and can’t be ruled out of the race, with Venetia Williams having a lively contender who was third in the recent William Hill Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase. There was also a respectable performance in the Ryanair Chase last March and this has to be one for the shortlist.

Danny Kirwan is probably one to consider at a bigger price. Back to back second-placed finishes have recently occurred and the latest showing at Ascot Racecourse, with the horse finishing second behind Our Power in the Bateaux London Gold Cup Handicap Chase over three miles. Back in March, the horse landed a victory in the Soil Science Handicap Chase.
