2023 Irish Cesarewitch Betting Odds at Curragh racecourse

Sunday, 24 September 2023

Tower Of London could end up going off favourite and there are obvious reasons for considering the runner from an each-way point of view ahead of this high-profile race. The three-year-old could be capable of kicking on, while Absurde is another lively contender who is set to run a big race for trainer Willie Mullins.

Speaking of Mullins, trainer Emmet has Teed Up lining up and the horse hasn’t been out of the first two in three outings this season. Valiant King also boasts decent form for Joseph O’Brien and we could see a big effort from Brazil who has previously demonstrated strong National Hunt form, with Echoes In Rain also a lively contender.

Tower Of London has achieved two wins already this season and they have come at Leopardstown and Down Royal respectively. In the King George V Cup at the former, there was a triumph over one mile and four furlongs, with this being followed by a comprehensive victory in the Ulster Derby over one mile and five furlongs.

However, the horse was beaten in the Bahrain Trophy Stakes at Newmarket last time out when being sent off as the odds-on favourite and perhaps punters will look at alternatives here. Absurde certainly catches the eye and there was lots to like about that Ebor Handicap victory over one mile and six furlongs when the horse beat favourite Sweet William.

Teed Up is an Irish raider who has claimed two wins in the past three races, with the latest coming in a handicap hurdle race at Galway, although the horse was previously sent off as the 5/2 favourite in the Guinness Handicap before being beaten by Brazil, a horse who is also entered in this encounter and merits respect.

Valiant King finished fifth out of seven horses in the Paddy Power Stakes at Leopardstown last time out and needs to find improvement, although that came after a more impressive showing in the Ballyroan Stakes at Newbury Racecourse, with the horse finishing narrowly behind odds-on favourite Vauban on soft ground.

Earl of Tyrone is a talented four-year-old who has won three of his five races and finished third in the other two. Last time out, the horse was able to be among the places in the Sky Bet Ebor Handicap at York Racecourse, with the runner finishing just over a length behind eventual winner Trawlerman.

Previously to this, there had been some strong form in Ireland. There was a win in a listed race in the form of the Martin Molony Stakes, with that coming over one mile and four furlongs meaning that more stamina is required although there was a win over a mile and six furlongs at The Curragh at the beginning of June.

Waterville has been in the places in all five races this season and will therefore be a warm order from an each-way horse racing bet, with the runner finishing second to Point King at Leopardstown over one mile and five furlongs, with the horse having won over two miles and one furlong at Limerick.

Echoes In Rain had an eye-catching win at Galway Racecourse last time out, with Willie Mullins having a flat horse that could secure a big win at The Curragh. Having won over two miles and one furlong in that encounter, there is plenty to like about a runner that finished second in the Irish Champion Hurdle.
