2023 Reynoldstown Novices Chase Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Saturday, 18 February 2023

The 2023 Bateaux London Reynoldstown Novices' Chase is packed with quality runners and we’re intrigued as to which horse will be able to stay over three miles and potentially lay down a marker for Cheltenham. Bold Endeavour could be the pick of the bunch and Nicky Henderson will be hoping that his charge is able to get the three mile trip and make a big impression.

However, Galia Des Liteaux appears to have regained her confidence and might benefit from the mares’ allowance in the race. We shouldn’t discount Kinondo Kwetu or Super Survivor from this race and both could be a good each-way option, especially if you compare the latest odds and select a bookmaker who has increased each-way terms.

2023 Reynoldstown Novices Chase Tips

The Bateaux London Reynoldstown Novices' Chase could give us some valuable pointers as far as the 2023 Cheltenham Festival is concerned. Bold Endeavour heads the betting market and the Nicky Henderson-trained runner is bidding for his third successive victory, with the seven-year-old looking like the one to beat over three miles at Ascot Racecourse.

There was a handicap chase win at Leicester in early December and that was followed by a win in a more competitive chase at Doncaster. However, that was over a trip of two miles and four furlongs, so there is a question mark over the distance. Galia Des Liteaux is next in the betting and Dan Skelton has high hopes for a horse who has won twice this season.

The seven-year-old was able to score a thirteen-length win at Warwick on 14 January, with the runner beating Complete Unknown and The Goffer over three miles on heavy ground. That was after the horse was pulled up in the Kauto Star Novices’ Chase following a bad mistake early in the race although the mare appears to be back on track now.

Kinondo Kwetu catches the eye considering that the Sam England-trained runner has scored five consecutive wins this season and the seven-year-old has to be considered in this small field. Over three miles and one furlong at Aintree Racecourse on 23 October, we saw a narrow win in a handicap chase and Super Survivor is another runner who merits respect based on achievements so far.
