Dublin Chase Betting Odds Comparison - Leopardstown

06/02/2021 13:35:00

The 2021 Dublin Chase takes place on 6 February 2021, with some of the leading Irish chasers lining up in this Grade 1 race which takes place over a distance of two miles and one furlong.

This horse race has been in operation at Leopardstown Racecourse since 2018 when Min triumphed in 2018 and 2019, with Willie Mullins training this horse and the Irish handler is now bidding to win the race for the fourth consecutive occasion.

That is because Mullins directed Chacun Pour Soi to victory twelve months ago and the nine-year-old is bidding to claim the spoils in this race before going on to compete in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

Can Anyone Stop Chacun Pour Soi Winning Dublin Chase?

Chacun Pour Soi is trading at around the 4/9 mark to win the 2021 Dublin Chase, with the horse having missed the 2020 Cheltenham Festival when many expected the horse to compete hard for the 2021 Queen Mother Champion Chase.

The horse returned for the 2020/21 season when obliging as the facile 1/5 favourite in a Grade 2 race at Cork at the beginning of December, while there was another victory by over six lengths when winning the Paddy’s Rewards Club Chase at Leopardstown.

Paul Townend will be on board this hot favourite and the fact that Chacun Pour Soi won this race at the 2020 Dublin Racing Festival marks him out as a tough contender, with Mullins just wanting to make sure that the horse is fresh and free from any ailments.

Min and Notebook Next in the Dublin Chase Betting

Min has won this race on two occasions and he’s another Rich Ricci-owned horse who has had a glittering career and the ten-year-old is bidding for his third success in this race. The only negative is the possibility that the pace might be a touch brisk for a horse who won the two mile four furlong Ryanair Chase at last year’s Cheltenham Festival.

Min triumphed when running in the two mile four furlong John Durkan Memorial Chase at Punchestown and will want a lot of cut in the ground for this race, while Notebook will be bidding to get closer to Chacun Pour Soi this time around.

When the two horses competed in the Paddy’s Rewards Club Chase, there was a six-and-a-half length difference between the pair, although Henry de Bromhead will hope that his progressive seven-year-old is able to get closer in this race and perhaps we’ll have a closer encounter than the current betting odds suggest.
