2023 Peter Marsh Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Haydock Park racecourse

Saturday, 21 January 2023

There are thirteen runners lining up for the 2023 Peter Marsh Chase and more than 50% of the horses are trading at single figure odds. Fontaine Collonges heads the betting and the eight-year-old looks favourably weighted for this encounter which explains why the horse is trading as the betting favourite, while Sam Brown also needs to be respected.

With lots of horses having a lively chance of success in this race, there are several runners who could be in the frame and Bristol De Mai would be a sentimental winner. Dusart returns to the track for Nicky Henderson and French Paradoxe could be capable of a big finish if he stays on his feet.

2023 Peter Marsh Chase Tips

Fontaine Collonges ran into a credible fourth place in a handicap chase at Kempton Park on 27 December, with Venetia Williams’ charge having lost his place during the race but finished the encounter strongly. Previously to this, there was a win at Haydock where the charge was able to secure a victory over three miles and one furlong to demonstrate staying power on soft ground.

Sam Brown runs for trainer Anthony Honeyball, with the horse wowing the crowd at the Grand National meeting last April when winning the Betway Handicap Chase. Sent off at 28/1, the horse was regarded as something of a no-hoper, although it was an impressive fifteen-length win and the horse then ran well when finishing third in the Charlie Hall Chase.

However, the horse finished well down the pecking order in the Boylesports Many Clouds Chase, with Bristol De Mai coming to the track to compete in a race which he won six years previously. Nigel Twiston-Davies’ horse has been respected by the layers and the horse needs to find considerable improvement on his showing in the Betfair Chase.

Dusart is an interesting runner who runs for Nicky Henderson and this is another runner that needs to find improvement, with the horse sent off as the 9/4 favourite for the recent Citipost Handicap Hurdle before coming well down the order. French Paradoxe has either won or fallen in his past four races.
