2023 Veterans' Handicap Chase Tips

Le Ligerien has been installed at the head of the betting market for the Unibet Middle Distance Chase Series Veterans' Handicap Chase, with the same horse recently running well at Kempton Park. Over two miles, four and a half furlongs, the runner was able to oblige by seven and a half lengths at betting odds of 6/1 when beating favourite Danny Kirwan.

However, the horse previously got pulled up at Chepstow and perhaps there is merit looking for an alternative in the market. Nicky Henderson has Mill Green in the race and the eleven-year-old should be capable of running well at the weight allowance. A second-placed finish occurred at Warwick when the runner was second to Thomas Darby.

Go Steady was also second last time out and the eleven-year-old will line up for trainer Dan Skelton here. There’s a much lower weight allowance than several of the other leading contenders and this horse finished runner-up in a competitive race at Uttoxeter Racecourse, losing by a neck to joint-favourite Sound and Fury.

Ibleo is something of an unknown after not making an appearance for over two years, with Venetia Williams hoping that the ten-year-old is somewhere back to his best here. Other ones for the shortlist include Storm Control, Top Ville Ben and Lord Du Mesnil, with all of these horses trading at a similar price to land a victory.
