2024 Peter Marsh Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Haydock Park racecourse

Saturday, 20 January 2024

Royale Pagaille heads the betting for the Peter Marsh Handicap Chase and the horse was certainly easy on the eye last time out. The ten-year-old could take all the beating although there’s plenty of weight being carried against the other runners, with Monbeg Genius running for Jonjo O’Neill and the eight-year-old also boasts solid credentials.

Famous Bridge has won his past two encounters and should be considered from an each-way point-of-view, with a spate of horses then trading at similar odds. This includes Blackjack Magic and Iwilldoit, with the latter running for Sam Thomas and the eleven-year-old has plenty of experience coming into this encounter.

Royale Pagaille certainly boasts plenty of class and the ten-year-old is the current market leader to win this race at Haydock Park. There was everything to like about his win in the Betfair Chase at the same course, with the horse claiming a surprise victory ahead of odds-on favourite Bravemansgame, with the winning distance being over six lengths.

Venetia Williams will be confident of a similar display this time around, with Monbeg Genius also available at similar betting odds. The horse was third when last making an appearance, with the eight-year-old putting up a sturdy performance when hitting the frame in the Coral Gold Cup Handicap Chase over three miles and two furlongs.

We should therefore be confident that Monbeg Genius will get the trip over three miles, one and a half furlongs. Famous Bridge is another one for the shortlist and the Nicky Richards-trained runner has secured back to back victories, with both of these successes coming at Haydock Park which means he’s bidding for a three-timer.

Sent off as the 5/2 favourite in the Tommy Whittle Handicap Chase, there was a one length victory on heavy ground, with this coming after a one length win in a previous handicap chase where the horse demonstrated his staying power. Considering that the runner has proven course and distance, this is definitely a candidate to weigh up.

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.
