2024 Grimthorpe Chase Betting Odds at Doncaster racecourse

Saturday, 02 March 2024

Some Scope looks like the one to beat when it comes to the Grimthorpe Handicap Chase, with the six-year-old boasting some bright form. Richard Hobson trains a runner who has passed the previous two assignments with flying colours. However, the racing odds imply that it could be a wide open encounter and that might bring others into play.

Undersupervision has been pulled up twice this season and the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained runner might struggle to make the trip here, although there could be a strong showing from Java Point who was successful last time out. Erne River and Git Maker are also strong operators and we’re looking forward to seeing the market shape up.

2024 Grimthorpe Handicap Chase Tips

Some Scope is the horse that they all might have to beat in the Grimthorpe Handicap Chase, with the runner boasting the strongest credentials. The charge looks to be favourably handicapped to make it a consecutive hat-trick of wins, with the six-year-old having enjoyed back to back successes and punters might be keen to back this runner.

There was a triumph at Doncaster at the end of January when the horse obliged by seven and a half lengths, with this coming after a win at Catterick back in November. Richard Hobson will be glad that the handicapper hasn’t been too severe, although there are several other contenders in the field including Undersupervision.

The latter has been pulled up twice this season although perhaps he will be suited to the conditions at Doncaster over three miles and two furlongs. In between the two flops was a credible third-placed finish at Cheltenham in November, with that coming at betting odds of 18/1 in a big field of runners.

Java Point scored for Henry Oliver last time out and the nine-year-old is another one for the shortlist, with a victory at Sandown Park coming against seven other runners. The horse was able to oblige as favourite on that occasion, with the horse previously winning at Catterick when fending off six other rivals.
