2023 Thyestes Chase Betting Odds at Gowran Park racecourse

Thursday, 26 January 2023

Gowran Park plays host to the 2023 Thyestes Chase and some bookmakers have Pencilfulloflead as the betting favourite. Gordon Elliott will have high hopes of a solid showing from his horse although the Irish handler could be mob-handed and Escaria Ten is another experienced runner from the stable who is capable of going close.

Willie Mullins might also have multiple entries in the race and Franco De Port has enjoyed five outings already this season although there might be some concern that the horse is yet to register a win. Diol Ker runs in the Gigginstown colours for Noel Meade and there have been back to back runner-up performances.

2023 Thyestes Chase Tips

We have a clutch of horses trading at a similar price to win the 2023 Thyestes Chase and it’s hard to pick an obvious contender. We recommend compiling a shortlist of horses and potentially consider placing some each-way bets on the action. The runners are all at a price where an each-way bet could help to yield a profit if the horse manages to register a first four finish.

It's worth bearing in mind that the horses all carry different weights and this is going to be a long-distance slog on potentially soft ground. Out of the leading contenders, Diol Ker is off a favourable mark and the Gigginstown horse has secured two runner-up positions, with the runner most recently landing second place in a twenty-eight runner race.

Escaria Ten is a respected horse who is carrying 11-6 and the nine-year-old and the horse was recently seen running into second at Thurles where we saw the horse run a favourable encounter when finishing two lengths behind favourite Darasso. Punters might be familiar with a horse that completed the Grand National course at Aintree last April.

Pencilfulloflead runs for Gordon Elliott and the horse was underwhelming when finishing last in a competitive race at Clonmel, although this trip might be more favourable when pitched against horses of a more modest rating. Franco De Port has failed to win any of his previous fourteen races and an each-way wager could be the better way forward.
