2023 Jewson Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Cheltenham racecourse

Sunday, 19 November 2023

Guetapan Collonges was successful last time out and the Charlie Longsdon-trained runner has been installed as favourite to win the Jewson Handicap Chase. The seven-year-old is one of the leading contenders, with City Chief also respected by the market and Nicky Henderson’s charge returns to the track after a long lay-off.

This is a tough long-distance encounter where there are lots of lively contenders and that includes Your Own Story who could be favourably handicapped for this clash. Flash Collonges runs for trainer Paul Nicholls and the eight-year-old fell last time out, with Galia Des Liteaux and Royale Pagaille also ones to consider for the shortlist.

2023 Jewson Handicap Tips

Guetapan Collonges ran really well in his last performance and that explains why the horse has been made favourite to win the Jewson Handicap Chase. In a handicap chase at Carlisle Racecourse, the seven-year-old obliged by two lengths over three miles, half a furlong. Considering that was on soft ground, the horse appears to have the right credentials here.

City Chief was sent off as the 15/8 favourite when running in the Champion Handicap Chase over three miles at Ayr Racecourse, with the Nicky Henderson-trained runner being beaten into third on that occasion. The six-year-old is carrying a reasonable amount of weight for this encounter although this is a highly-rated runner.

Your Own Story also makes a seasonal debut here, with the horse carrying 9-9 and that could mean that the horse is the each-way value. Sixth place in the Scottish Grand National over four miles, with the runner having excellent staying ability. There was also a second-placed finish at Haydock Park over three miles, four and a half furlongs.

Flash Collonges also ran in the Scottish National and was in touch with the leaders when falling at the nineteenth fence, with Paul Nicholls saddling a horse who had previously secured a victory at Newbury Racecourse when winning by three lengths over a trip of two miles, seven and a half furlongs. There could be more to come from this runner.
