2023 Bulmers Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Leopardstown racecourse

Sunday, 05 February 2023

There’s another quality horse race on the Leopardstown racecard, with Indigo Breeze and Panda Boy heading the betting although there is a case for several runners in this encounter. Indeed, this is a good punting race and Maskada was successful last time out. Perhaps Henry de Bromhead will have a Leopardstown Festival to remember.

Carefully Selected won for Willie Mullins last time out, with Donkey Years, Rebel Gold and Seddon also trading at similar odds. Much comes down to how much weight is being carried by each runner and also the going. We recommend looking out for extra places when it comes to your each-way bet in order to maximise a potential return.

2023 Bulmers Handicap Chase Tips

Indigo Breeze has a couple of runner-up placings in his last two horse races, with the seven-year-old having run a credible race at Cheltenham last time out. There was less than a length between this horse and winner The Real Whacker on 13 November and the horse could have benefitted from plenty of prep time leading up to this race.

Previously to this, there was a second placed slot behind Banbridge at Gowran Park in a Beginners Chase back in October. Panda Boy is another horse who is prominent in the betting and the horse hit the frame on his last outing, with the Martin Brassil-trained runner able to finish third in a big field of runners at Leopardstown on 27 December.

Maskada looks very handy at the weights and Henry de Bromhead will be confident that his horse will be able to stay the trip of two miles and five furlongs. A victory at Limerick over the festive period saw the horse win over two miles, three and a half furlongs and that was on heavy ground. The six-year-old should be able to come on enormously for that run.

Carefully Selected is a more seasoned campaigner and there was plenty to like about the way in which the runner claimed a win on soft to heavy ground over three miles and one furlong last time out. There was a triumph by a short head at Gowran Park, with Willie Mullins expecting the eleven-year-old to put on a solid showing here.
