2023 Swinley Chase Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Saturday, 18 February 2023

The runners and riders will compete over three miles at Ascot Racecourse to compete in the Swinley Chase, with Cap Du Nord one of the older horses in the race. The runner has been installed as favourite to win, although some punters might be looking for more juice in the odds and there are several horses that have a viable each-way chance of securing a victory.

Harry Fry has two interesting runners in the form of Revels Hill and Phoenix Way who could both run into the frame, while Venetia Williams has Laskalin and this horse has hit the frame in all three appearances this season. Farinet also runs for the same stable, with Danny Kirwan set to make a showing after back-to-back runner-up performances this term.

2023 Swinley Chase Betting Tips

The LK Bennett Swinley Handicap Chase takes place at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday 18 February, with the runners and riders competing over three miles on good ground. There are fourteen horses set to go to post and it will be interesting to see which one is able to come out on top, with Cap Du Nord capturing the bookmaker’s attention.

Christian Williams’ charge is now ten but there’s a feeling as though his better performances are behind him. Nevertheless, the runner was second in the Sky Bet Handicap Chase at Doncaster at the end of January, with the horse bouncing back after a poor display at Cheltenham when finishing dead last. It’s definitely worth looking for a bigger price.

Laskalin was able to produce a solid performance last time out when finishing second out of twelve runners, with the horse narrowly missing out on a victory after being sent off as the 7/2 favourite. Indeed, the horse also fell short when being sent off as the market leader in a handicap chase at Newbury Racecourse, so perhaps it’s worth consider a few alternatives.

Danny Kirwan has not been seen since finishing second in the Bateaux London Gold Cup Handicap Chase and the horse ran pretty well behind Our Power. That was a premier handicap race and Harry Cobden will be on board for this encounter, while Revels Hill will hope to improve on his showing at Sandown Racecourse over three miles and five furlongs.
