Some of the leading chasers from the big Irish horse racing yards will have contenders lining up to compete for a share of the spoils, with this taking place over a distance of three miles and this is likely to be on soft or even heavy ground.

Ontheropes Among Favourites to Win Paddy Power Steeplechase

Willie Mullins will have lots of lively contenders to win the Paddy Power Steeplechase and perhaps Ontheropes is the main one, with the six-year-old running a gallant race when finishing second behind Monkfish in the Jim Ryan Racecourse Services Beginners Chase on 28 November 2020.

The fact that the Mullins runner was a 16/1 chance finishing runner-up against a massive odds-on shot means that we need to treat his chances seriously for this encounter, with the horse actually needing a run considering that his last appearance was being pulled up at Navan in March.

Who Are the Other Big Betting Favourites to Win PP Steeplechase?

Mullins has some other leading horses and Castlebawn West could be a runner that finished up in the each-way betting places, with the runner finishing third in the Alanna Homes Handicap Chase and that was a solid showing over two miles and three furlongs.

Class Conti is among the more difficult horses to predict and the eight-year-old hasn’t had a run in the past twelve months, although there are several horses that could also have a say in this race.

Daly Tiger has a 1 next to his name after the Noel Meade runner returned to the track to recently win at Punchestown on 14 November, with the horse triumphing by over four lengths and this could be many people’s idea of a strong each-way bet.

Meade also has a lively contender in the form of Brace Yourself and this horse has plenty of runs under his belt, with four finishes already during the 2020/21 National Hunt season, with the seven-year-old looking to be in strong form.

Brace Yourself won at Gowran Park back in October and recently ran into second place over three miles and five furlongs at Punchestown Racecourse, with this being a lively each-way contender.
