2024 Swinley Chase Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Saturday, 17 February 2024

The runners and riders are competing for the Swinley Handicap Chase and the field could be as big as seventeen horses lining up for this encounter. There are twenty fences to be negotiated and the betting market looks wide open. Kilbeg King is among the leading contenders, with Threeunderthrufive bidding to improve on a couple of runner-up placings.

Paul Nicholls trains this horse, while Venetia Williams has saddled Victtorino to a double success this season. Iron Bridge finished second last time out and could go well for Jonjo O’Neill, with Shan Blue posting a third-placed finish and there could be more to come from the Nicky Henderson-trained City Chief based on the latest racing odds.

There will be no more than seventeen runners lining up in the Swinley Handicap Chase, with Kilbeg King trading as one of the favourites to win this race. There have been three third-placed finishes from the nine-year-old who has been assigned a weight of 11-4 for this encounter, with a solid showing in the Kauto Star Novices’ Chase last time out.

Sent off as the 28/1 outsider, it was a solid performance over three miles on good ground, with Threeunderthrufive available at a similar price for this race. Paul Nicholls trains a nine-year-old who has recorded back to back runner-up displays this season. Harry Cobden will be on board a charge who finished second out of eight runners at Cheltenham in December.

Victtorino landed consecutive successes before finishing seventh last time out. That was in a competitive handicap chase over two miles, four and a half furlongs following successive wins at Ascot. There was a win in the Silver Cup Handicap Chase over three miles and that came after a surprise win at the beginning of November when sent off at 20/1.

Iron Bridge could go off a favourable mark and the Jonjo O’Neill-trained runner has definite potential, with the eight-year-old having finished second last time around. In a field of nineteen runners, only winner Nassalam was able to triumph ahead of him in the Welsh Grand National and he was one of the few horses that managed to stay the long trip at Chepstow in testing conditions.

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.
