2023 Skybet Chase Betting Odds at Doncaster racecourse

Saturday, 28 January 2023

A maximum of twenty runners will go to post for this long-distance steeplechase race at Doncaster Racecourse. There are eighteen obstacles to overcome and it comes down to the horse who is able to provide a fluent round of jumping and also has the stamina to succeed. Into Overdrive appears to tick the boxes although this is a wide open race.

Mr Incredible runs for trainer Willie Mullins and the seven-year-old was pretty impressive when finishing second last time around. Dusart needs to find improvement if he does end up lining up in this race, with French Paradoxe a talented horses who is just as likely to fall as win the encounter.

2023 Sky Bet Chase Tips

Into Overdrive is a horse that has been shortened in the horse racing betting odds for the 2023 Sky Bet Handicap Chase and perhaps there’s still some value backing a runner who hasn’t been out of the first two in his past six encounters. Indeed, five of them have ended in victory and the latest success came at Wetherby Racecourse on Boxing Day.

A three-mile success in the William Hill Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase saw the horse triumph narrowly against Sounds Russian, having run impressively a month earlier when finishing second in the Betfair Exchange Rehearsal Handicap Chase and it was just a one-length defeat on that occasion when being chinned by L’Homme Presse.

However, Mr Incredible is another potential winner of this race and Willie Mullins will have high hopes for a runner who recently finished second in a race at Warwick. That was over three miles and five furlongs on heavy ground, so it seems clear that the horse might get the trip and the same applies to French Paradoxe although there are greater question marks over his jumping ability.

The eight-year-old was a faller last time out at Ffos Las but showed his class when winning a handicap chase at Wetherby. We are never going to see the horse jump fluently although he has demonstrated lots of stamina when staying on his feet. Dusart is a horse with plenty to prove and Nicky Henderson might pitch the eight-year-old at this race with some confidence.

2022 Skybet Chase Betting Tips

There is a fantastic spectacle on the cards at the end of January, with the 2022 Sky Bet Handicap Chase set to be an exciting showdown over three miles. The race will take place on Saturday 29 January, with Fusil Raffles among the favourites to win and it could come down to a stiff test of stamina, especially if the ground is soft.

Does He Know will run for trainer Kim Bailey and has already landed two victories this season, while trainer Paul Nicholls has an interesting runner in the form of nine-year-old Kapcorse. This horse won a handicap chase towards the end of November and perhaps we will see him run a big race at Doncaster.

Can Cap Du Nord Win as Sky Bet Chase Betting Favourite?

Cap Du Nord has been installed as the Sky Bet Chase betting favourite and it pays to compare bookmaker odds to get the biggest possible price about the eight-year-old who is trained by Christian Williams and has produced some reasonably good performances this season.

After finishing fourth in a field of ten horses at Wincanton Racecourse at the beginning of November, there was then a victory in the Sir Peter O'Sullevan Memorial Handicap Chase at Newbury at the end of November, while Cap Du Nord then finished second in a Kempton chase race over Christmas.

Who Are the Other Sky Bet Chase Favourites?

The winner of that above race was Royale Pagaille and this runner features prominently in the Sky Bet Handicap Chase betting market, with the seven-year-old trained by Venetia Williams and this could be a big price to grab from an each-way runner who has proved to be ultra-consistent.

Charlie Deutsch rode the horse to victory in a Novices’ Chase at the beginning of December before the horse followed that up with a win and he will now be bidding to land major honours in the Sky Bet Chase.

Canelo and Notachance are next in the betting and the former is trained by Alan King, with the horse winning the William Hill Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase at Wetherby on Boxing Day and this could be another bright performance from a horse that finished second to Cap Du Nord at Newbury.

Notachance is another Alan King runner and he’s only been seen at a racecourse once this season, with the six-year-old winning a handicap race at Bangor-on-Dee in early November and there are lots of lively chances for a horse race where the each-way terms could be four places or even five.
