2023 Drinmore Novice Chase Betting Odds at Fairyhouse racecourse

Sunday, 03 December 2023

The 2023 Drinmore Novice Chase, with Letsbeclearaboutit running for trainer Gavin Cromwell, with this horse having secured back to back successes in the lead-up to this encounter. The eight-year-old looks to have solid credentials, while Found A Fifty will make an appearance for trainer Gordon Elliott and has to stand a chance.

Sharjah has picked up a couple of recent victories and the ten-year-old is still going strong for trainer Willie Mullins, with the runner trading at a short price for victory. I Am Maximus is also a backable each-way price and this is another Mullins-trained charge who could make a strong appearance, with the seven-year-old’s price catching the eye.

2023 Drinmore Novice Chase Tips

Letsbeclearaboutit is the shortest-priced horse to win the 2023 Drinmore Novice Chase, with the eight-year-old looking for a consecutive hat-trick of victories. There was a win against seven other runners at Gowran Park Racecourse

Found A Fifty is a talented six-year-old who will go for trainer Gordon Elliott, having achieved an eight-length win at Down Royal on 10 November. The 8/13 favourite looked to be in decent nick following some underwhelming performances at Punchestown and Aintree, with the horse eighth in the Top Novices’ Hurdle.

Sharjah is something of an old stager, with the Willie Mullins-trained runner having landed a victory at Galway in early August, while a more recent win came at Tipperary and that was a twelve-length triumph against four other contenders. The fact that the horse only finished three lengths behind Constitution Hill at Aintree is strong form.

I Am Maximus also goes for trainer Mullins, with the seven-year-old having won on his last outing in the previous season, with the horse securing a victory at Fairyhouse when beating twenty-six other horses. This was in the Irish Grand National, so stamina is unlikely to be an issue and that was over three miles and five furlongs on soft ground.
