2023 Hurst Park Handicap Steeple Chase Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Saturday, 25 November 2023

Boothill is the highest-rated horse in the Jim Barry Hurst Park Handicap Chase over two miles and one furlong, with the eight-year-old having to carry plenty of weight when it comes to this tussle. Harry Fry will hope that his stable star can perform well although much will come down to the testing conditions and whether another contender can deliver.

Saint Segal is a younger contender and the Jane Williams-trained runner could be a value selection with the horse having finished third last time out. Corrigeen Rock has landed successive wins for trainer Lucinda Russell, with Dan Skelton saddling Frere d’Armes and this runner could benefit from a favourable weight allowance.

Boothill has been a star performer for Harry Fry and the eight-year-old was successful at Ascot last time out. Having been sent off as the 7/2 favourite in the Byrne Group Handicap Chase, the horse was was able to enjoy a four-length victory when seeing off First Flow, Saint Segal and Cap Du Mathan. Perhaps we’ll see another win here.

Saint Segal will hope to frank the form this time around and Jane Williams saw her runner finish third in a previous outing, with six lengths needed to find on Boothill, with the charge having achieved wins at Hereford and Chepstow last season. Corrigeen Rock is another interesting contender who has enjoyed successive wins.

The six-year-old last obliged when winning at Kempton Park in late October, marking a successful return to the track after beating four rivals at Perth Racecourse. The Lucinda Russell-trained runner looks like an each-way bet to nothing based on previous achievements, while Frere D’Armes could go well at a similar price.

The six-year-old finished fifth last time out, with Aucunrisque one of several runners who are available at double figure betting odds. Chris Gordon saddles a seven-year-old who was third out of six runners at Fontwell back at the beginning of October. Triple Trade also has solid form and could go well for handler Joe Tizzard.
