2024 Irish Arkle Betting Odds at Leopardstown racecourse

Saturday, 03 February 2024

Dysart Dynamo is a talented seven-year-old who could be the horse to beat when it comes to the Goffs Irish Arkle Novice Chase. The runner achieved a monster victory at Leopardstown over the festive period although this is a stiffer test and perhaps El Fabiolo could trouble his stablemate in this contest.

The six-year-old was also in the winners’ enclosure last time out, with Appreciate It another Mullins runner who has plenty of experience. From an each-way point-of-view, there could be plenty of interest and we can also see Banbridge and Fil Dor also running big races for Joseph O’Brien and Gordon Elliott respectively.

2023 Dublin Chase Betting Tips

Can anyone stop Blue Lord winning the 2023 Ladbrokes Dublin Chase? The eight-year-old has been largely flawless over the past couple of years. At the Leopardstown Christmas Festival, the horse was excellent when winning the Paddy's Rewards Club Chase and the 2/1 shot was able to triumph by a full eleven lengths to demonstrate that this is a high-calibre horse.

The horse won the Clonmel Oil Chase in November when touching off Tornado Flyer, Darasso and Pencilfulloflead. Last season, the horse signed off with a victory in the Barberstown Castle Novice Chase at the Punchestown Festival and this came after finishing third in the Arkle which was a competitive race won by the talented Edwardstone.

Energumene is a class act who could go well at a bigger price and this is a horse that has reserved some of his best performances for Irish racecourses. Willie Mullins will be hopeful that the nine-year-old will be suited to the two mile and one furlong trip, with the horse enjoying a three-race winning run and this includes a victory in the 2022 Queen Mother Champion Chase.

Gentleman De Mee is another Willie Mullins-trained runner and the JP McManus-owned horse has struggled to find form in recent outings. After beating Edwardstone at Aintree last April, there were high hopes that the horse could be a big contender this season. However, the horse unseated his rider at Naas before underwhelming performances at Sandown and Leopardstown.

2023 Irish Arkle Betting Tips

The 2023 Goffs Irish Arkle Novice Chase looks to be a really exciting race and Dysart Dynamo heads the betting market. The seven-year-old was actually sent off as the joint-favourite in last year’s Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. While Constitution Hill was a runaway winner, the Willie Mullins-trained charge was a faller and the horse then ran badly at Punchestown the following month.

However, the runner enjoyed a return to form when winning a Beginners Chase by twenty-eight lengths. There will be a stiffer test when it comes to this race, with El Fabiolo having landed a facile victory at Fairyhouse in December, although there was also plenty to like about the win that occurred at Punchestown in a novice hurdle in April.

Appreciate It struggled in the 2022 Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival and the nine-year-old then scored a Beginners Chase victory at Punchestown back in December. There was also a Novice Chase success at Naas although the horse remains something of an unknown quantity over the bigger obstacles.

Banbridge recently scored back to back successes, with victories coming at Gowran Park and Cheltenham, with the horse finishing third in the Bar One Racing Drinmore Novice Chase behind Mighty Potter and Gaillard Du Mesnil. Previously there was a Novices’ Chase win at Cheltenham and we think this is a wide open encounter with lots of lively chances.
