2022 Shloer Chase Betting Odds at Cheltenham racecourse

Sunday, 13 November 2022

According to the horse racing betting sites, Edwardstone is the strong favourite to win the 2022 Shloer Chase, with the eight-year-old having enjoyed a successful National Hunt career to date. This is his seasonal reappearance after a fantastic previous season, with Alan King having high hopes that his charge can produce a strong performance here.

Nube Negra is the other class act in the field and Dan Skelton is hopeful that this horse could yet become a Queen Mother Champion Chase contender, with Editeur Du Gite the other runner that is trading at single figure betting odds. We’re looking forward to a high-octane two-mile race around Prestbury Park.

2022 Cheltenham Shloer Chase Tips

Edwardstone enjoyed a string of victories last season, with the eight-year-old looking to enhance his reputation and he’s trading at odds-on when it comes to the Shloer Chase. The horse was previously sent off as the 5/2 favourite to win the 2022 Arkle Chase at the Cheltenham Festival and duly obliged when winning by over four lengths.

However, Edwardstone then went to Aintree and was unable to oblige when being sent off as the 4/7 favourite. Gentleman De Mee was able to lower his colours on that occasion and there’s always an element of unpredictability when it comes to the first outing of the campaign, with plenty of other horses lining up here.

Nube Negra has had a fine career of his own to date. Dan Skelton’s charge was the winner of the Shloer Chase twelve months ago when landing the spoils at odds of 9/4. He was able to beat Politologue and Put The Kettle On in a small field, with the horse able to adapt to good conditions and could yet end up running in the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

However, Nube Negra has plenty of improvement to find in order to win this race. There was a distant third placed finish at Sandown behind Greaneteen and perhaps Editeur Du Gite offers better value after a promising recent run at Cheltenham in a handicap chase.
