2024 Silviniaco Conti Chase Betting Odds at Kempton Park racecourse

Saturday, 13 January 2024

Pic D’Orhy is a talented nine-year-old who could take all the beating at Kempton Park, with the horse being installed as market leader to land a victory on Saturday. There should be plenty of backers of this horse, although Edwardstone could also be in the running and the ten-year-old has run some big races for trainer Alan King over the years.

There isn’t much in the betting between the first three, with Banbridge reappearing for the season and the eight-year-old has the potential to go well for Joseph O’Brien, with the younger horse looking a backable each-way price. Notlongtillmay could also make inroads and appears fourth in the market.

Pic D’Orhy has enjoyed a spate of victories during his career, with the Paul Nicholls-trained runner having landed victories at Aintree and Ascot in his last two appearances. There was a win in the Marsh Chase back in April when obliging at odds of 4/1, with a victory being achieved by over four lengths when beating Fakir D’oudairies.

Harry Cobden then rode the same horse to success in the Nirvana Spa 1965 Chase over two miles and five furlongs, although it could be a tough ordeal against Edwardstone and the latter has drummed up a couple of runner-up performances this season. Alan King saddles a horse that finished second to Jonbon in November before getting closer to the same horse in December.

Some might be deterred by the fact that Edwardstone has failed to win any of his previous five races, with Banbridge boasting a stronger track record and the latest victory came at Aintree where Saint Roi was beaten by a length and a half. There was also a smart performance at Leopardstown back in February when losing to El Fabiolo.

Notlongtillmay is bidding for a first victory of the season, with Adam Wedge on board an eight-year-old who could easily be among the first two home. There was a solid showing at November when finishing second out of fourteen runners at Cheltenham, with the horse previously performing well at Prestbury Park and has to be considered here.

The money has been coming for Pic D’Orhy and we’ve seen back-to-back wins for the eight-year-old this season. On 4 December, the horse lined up against six other runners at Huntingdon Racecourse and claimed a victory by beating favourite Millers Bank into second place, with Harry Cobden on board on that occasion.

Previously to this, there was a win in an Intermediate Chase at Newton Abbott, with the horse looking a better prospect since having a wind surgery op after a disappointing showing at Aintree Racecourse. Let’s not forget that the runner had previously won a Grade 2 Novices’ Chase at Kempton Park back in February.

Paint The Dream looks a decent prospect and Fergal O’Brien’s charge looked really impressive when landing a fourteen-length win in a Handicap Chase at Newbury Racecourse. A repeat of that performance could see the nine-year-old go really close and that is reflected in the relatively short betting odds.

Saint Calvados has been around the block a few times. It’s hard to get too much of a read from his last outing when finishing second in a two-runner race against Coole Cody. There was previously a win in the bet365 Oaksey Chase at Sandown Racecourse, with that sixteen-length win coming over two miles and six furlongs although age is a concern.
