2023 Mares Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Cheltenham racecourse

Friday, 15 December 2023

Gavin Cromwell trains La Malmason and the five-year-old heads the racing betting market when it comes to this Cheltenham encounter. There was a third-placed effort last time out, with Walk In Clover running for trainer Dan Skelton and bidding for a first victory of the season. Mad About Sally is an older contender who also has the ability to perform well.

However, many punters might look beyond the market leaders in search of a bigger price. There are likely to be extra places available for each-way bettors, with lots of horses having a lively chance of securing a victory. Compare the latest odds for this two mile, four and a half furlong encounter and grab the betting value.

2023 Cheltenham Mares Handicap Chase Tips

There’s an interesting card when it comes to the Cheltenham Racecourse Food Bank Collection Mares' Handicap Chase, with La Malmason looking like a strong contender and punters might consider an each-way wager on the horse. At Down Royal on 10 November, there was a third placed finish behind 8/13 favourite Found A Fifty in a Beginners Chase.

Previously to this, the horse unseated his rider and perhaps Walk In Clover boasts stronger credentials, with the Dan Skelton-trained runner having regularly hit the frame this season. There was a third-placed finish out of eleven horses at Cheltenham last month, with the horse running well at betting odds of 14/1 and there could be more to come.

Mad About Sally landed a win last time out and the eight-year-old was impressive enough at Chepstow when securing an eleven-length victory. Oliver Signy’s charge looks well handicapped for this encounter and is trading at a similar price to Royale Margaux who goes for trainer Tom Symonds. This horse was well down the order at Cheltenham last time out.

There’s also the chance that I Am Gonna Be and Malaita could run into a place and punters are recommended to look out for extra places when it comes to betting on this race. This is the sort of encounter where the bookies will also have price boosts and it could be worth going for more than one selection against the field when they line up.
