2023 Mucking Brilliant Paddy Power Handicap Betting Odds at Cheltenham racecourse

Friday, 17 November 2023

We have as many as fourteen runners going to post in the Mucking Brilliant Paddy Power Handicap, with the horses competing at Cheltenham Racecourse over two miles. The bookmakers have this as a wide open encounter, with Calico, No Risk Des Flos and Richmond Lake installed among the betting favourites to land a victory.

Do Your Job, Guy and Triple Trade are also leading contenders, with the bookmakers likely to offer extra places for a handicap race where the going is predicted to be good to soft. It should be an interesting race, with Dan Skelton training Calico and this horse was able to register a couple of victories last season.

Calico produced some eye-catching performances last season and the seven-year-old is now head of the betting market for this handicap race at Cheltenham. The German-bred horse fell at Aintree in the Maghull Novices’ Chase last April, although there was a victory at Doncaster Racecourse at the beginning of March.

Dan Skelton will hope for a bright performance from his charge and the same applies to No Risk Des Flos, with the horse finishing third out of five runners in a handicap chase over two miles and four furlongs at Sandown Park. Previously to this was a victory at Wetherby in a handicap chase and Olly Murphy saddles a prime contender here.

Richmond Lake finished last season with consecutive wins and they came at Haydock and Ayr, with the latest of these coming in a handicap chase at Ayr over two miles, four and a half furlongs. Donald McCain will be confident that the runner can give a good account of himself here, although some might be dissuaded by a hefty weight allowance.

Do Your Job has already ran this season and might benefit from an outing in the Old Roan Chase at Aintree towards the end of October, with Guy having also made an appearance this season and that was a fifth-placed finish out of eleven runners over two miles. That performance at Cheltenham may well stand the horse in good stead here.
